Dani Johnson's Apple Crisp Recipe

Let me first give you a disclaimer. This is not a healthy recipe. It's not the worst recipe for you, but it is high in sugar, so just be aware and treat it as a treat meal and not as a "healthy" option

Dani Johnson shared this recipe in one of her "Daily Fix" Emails. If you do not know who she is, or get her emails, go check it out here.  I love that she stresses using what you have on hand and not wasting things. I am the same way. I cringe when I have to throw food away and I have no idea why. I think my dad was pretty frugal, so it must have rubbed off on me. My theory is, if im faithful with what I have and use it wisely, I can do the things I want to with the extra money. I think a lot of this mentality also came from being a low income/ one income military wife. I was forced to make it work and being frugal really helped us to be able to do more. I still save veggie scraps in the freezer to make stock. Waste not; want not, right?

Pressure Cooker Verde White Bean Chicken Chili

Pressure Cooker Verde White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

This might be my favorite soup ever now. I know I keep saying that, but it was so simple to make and it's healthy plus the flavors are so great together. It's just something different. This is a great one to make ahead for meal prepping, or for a fast easy meal after work in just 30 minutes.

Could easily be modified for the slow cooker. Just cook on low for about 6 hours. Shred chicken and enjoy!

Pressure Cooker Verde White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

2-3 chicken breasts, uncooked
1 onion, diced
1/2 can green salsa (I used Herndez)
about 1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 tsp bullion paste (I use the organic better than bullion)
4 cups water
1 can white cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup white corn, frozen preferred
Approx. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 large cloves garlic, lightly chopped
a few dashes of chipotle chili powder (optional -- this will make it spicy, so be warned)


Plug in power pressure cooker and hit the "meat" button; hit the middle "cook time selection" 3 times until it is on high. Leave the lid off and you will saute the onions this way.
Drizzle tbsp of olive oil in the pot. Add onion and saute for a few minutes or until opaque and golden. Move onion to the side and brown chicken. Sprinkle chicken with cumin, salt, pepper and chipotle chili powder. Just brown for a few min on each side (for faster prep, do not brown chicken).

Add in remaining ingredients. Cover with lid and press cancel.
Press the "soup" button and hit cook time selector until it says 30 minutes. It will do a loading type display while the pressure builds. Once the pressure is correct it will begin to countdown.

After 30 minutes, carefully release the steam. Once released open the lid. Soup will be extremely hot. Shred chicken using tongs or allow to cool and shred.

Serve with fresh avocado and 1/4 of a lime squeezed.
