    If you have never had the Mexican dish Posole here is a fast version that is easy to make. Trust me, try this.

    We have a large crock pot so this recipe can be adjusted for a smaller one.

    • 3 cans of hominy, 29 oz. cans.
    • 2 cans of Hereford Roast Beef, 12 oz. cans. (This is the fast version. It is actually better with a small pork roast that cooks overnight and then shred the meat off the roast.)
    • 1 can of red enchilada sauce, 29 oz.
    • 2 tablespoons of red chile powder
    • 1 teaspoon of jalapeno powder (you can add more if you want it hotter. I find more people don't want it too hot.)
    Drain two of the cans of Hominy of all water. Pour in crock pot. Add the 3rd can of Hominy with the water from the can.

    Add the two cans of Roast Beef. You should shred the beef rather than just throw in the chunks.

    Add the Red Enchilada sauce, the red chile powder, and the jalapeno powder.

    Stir it all together with a wooden spoon.

    Cooked on low it will be ready in 8 hours. (recommended)

    Cooked on medium it will be ready in 6 hours.

    Cooked on high it will be ready in 4 hours.


    Serve in a bowl. Let it cool down for 5 minutes before eating. The Hominy really retains cooking heat.

    You can shred some cheese on top, or some Fritos chips if you want to. It honestly isn't needed. It's good as is. I do recommend some good quality flour tortillas with it.

    Note: If you do it with the pork roast simply cook the pork roast overnight on low. Then shred the meat and follow the same steps as above.

    Good stuff.

    Crock Pot Roast Beef.

    So simple it is almost laughable. So good you will never regret this.

    • Roast beef
    • Potatoes
    • Carrots
    • 1 white Onion
    • Stewed Tomatoes
    • 1 can Spicy V-8 Juice
    Put the roast in the crock pot. Peel and slice your potatoes and add them. Peel and slice some carrots and add them. Peel and dice the white onion then add it. Pour in the can of spicy V-8 juice and let it cook for 8 hours on low.

    Get out of the house. The smell will make your mouth water.

    After 8 hours drain and add the can of stewed tomatoes. Cook another 30 minutes.

    Serve and enjoy.

    Nice thread Hos.
    I have a crock pot and have no idea what to do with it. I made a stew once and it was a train wreck, so I kind of left off...

    Keep posting these things and I just might pull it out and give it another shot. :)

    Hostile's Hotter than Hell Chili

    This one is not for sissies.

    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 2 cups of pinto beans (less if you have a small crock pot)
    • 3 strips of bacon
    • 1 red onion
    • 1 habanero pepper
    • 5 jalapenos
    • 1 bell pepper
    • 5 tablespoons red chili powder
    • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 tablespoon jalapeno powder
    • Course ground black pepper (pepper mill recommended)
    2 cups of pinto beans in the crock pot add water to about halfway up the crock pot. Cut 3 strips of bacon into inch squares and add. Cook on low overnight.

    Brown the ground beef. Sprinkle a lot of black ground pepper to season the beef. I usually grind the pepper mill for about 15 to 20 seconds. Drain the oil.

    Add the ground beef to the cooked beans.

    Finely dice all 5 jalapeno peppers, 1 habanero pepper, 1 bell pepper, and 1 red onion. Add to the mixture along with 5 tablespoons of red chili powder, 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper, 1 tablespoon of jalapeno powder.

    Cook for 4 hours stirring every 15 minutes.

    Serve with grated cheese and Fritos and lots of ice water. Woowee.

    I would think you might want to save some ice for later?

    I recommend ice cream, because this will burn twice. You will be saying, "come on ice cream."

    I am a crock pot advocate

    1) Love to make a nice Italian sauce on a Sunday. I grow ton's of tomatoes in my garden and a nice make.

    2) Beef Stew - Cut some beef (stores also sell cut) potatoes and carrots. Build some nice broth and slow cook. Awesome

    3) Chili - I wing the recipe. Tomato Sauce, ground beef, black pea's, cut onions, and chili seasoning and add jalapeno and cayenne to the mix

    4) Slow cook a small chicken in crock - comes out great

    Have you ever tried naga jolokia peppers? If you threw one in there, you'd triple the heat (on the scoville scale). Highly recommended if you like pain.

    It's just the capsaicin that causes issues. You can lower it considerably by discarding most of the seeds and membrane of the peppers and still have the taste and healthy bits. Just make sure you wear gloves, because that amount of capsaicin will burn skin and anything you touch afterwards (usually eyes).

    i've rubbed my eyes the next day after preparing meals with jalapenos and washing my hands several times throughout the previous night and it still burns.

    unreal.
