Slow Cooker Oven Paella with Chicken, Shrimp, and Chorizo

Paella is a classic Spanish dish of rice and seafood that was traditionally made by the men in the family. Using a large pot, they cooked it over an orange and pine wood-burning fire that would let off an aroma that infused the dish with more flavor. This recipe is a much easier alternative to the classic technique, yet still produces a dish that is wonderful to present at the table.

Slow Cooker Sans Tortilla Soup

This soup is our go-to. Spicy, scrumptious tortilla soup. Which we have coined “sans tortilla soup” since we never actually put any tortillas in it...we love the combination of flavors: spicy kicks of chili powder, green chiles, and enchilada sauce, with smoky cumin, slow-cooked chicken, and hearty diced tomatoes. Delicious!
