Crockpot Creamed Corn

Crockpot Creamed Corn
1 bag frozen white corn
1 can corn
1 T butter
1 T cream cheese
2 T flour (she used Pamela’s baking mix.)
3 T fat free milk
1/4 t black pepper
In a small saucepan, melt your butter and cream cheese over low heat on the stove top and make a rue, adding your flour slowly and wisking until there aren’t any lumps. Add your milk and the liquid from the can of corns to the mix and wisk some more. The cream cheese is pretty thick, and you may need the liquid in the saucepan before the flour will melt nicely for you. Mix in the black pepper. Empty the contents of the frozen bag of corn and the rest from the can of corn into your crockpot. Cover with the sauce.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 3-4.

This is done when everything is hot and melty.

Sloppy Janes

(from Becca)

1 T olive oil
1 cup orange, yellow and red bell peppers, chopped
1 cup scallions, chopped
1 T garlic paste
1 lb ground chicken/turkey
1 – 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (I used garlic flavored)
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 T red wine vinegar
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add scallions and bell peppers and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add garlic paste and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

Add turkey and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, stirring until no longer pin, 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and their juices, Worcestershire and salt. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, 3 minutes (at this point, you could probably transfer it to your slow cooker). Stir in vinegar and cilantro into the turkey mixture. Serve on your favorite roll/bread.
