What's your favorite low cal crockpot recipe?

My family liked this one http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Slow-Cooker-C...off/Detail.aspx

I substituted low fat sour cream for cream cheese though. I didn't like the cream cheese, plus this way it's low cal/low fat.

That looks good. I just got home from a chili cookoff at school where I entered my chili that I do in the crock pot. It's basicly the leanest meat you can find (I use 97% lean ground sirloin), pinto beans, kidney beans, small red beans, tomato sauce (homemade is best if you have a good recipe for it), flour (to thicken it), and spices. I don't measure anything, so I can't tell you how much of each thing I use. I use a big roaster oven that I use instead of a crock pot and put in 3-4 pounds of meat and 3-4 pounds of beans so I have enough for my piglets (I mean DH & DS, the bottomless pits) and enough to freeze for another night. Basically, it starts with the beans and enough water to cover them, let cook overnight in crockpot. Brown meat (with or without onion, depending on your families tastes) with a little garlic powder. Drain beans, add meat, cover with water, add 1-2 quarts of tomato sauce, then season to taste. We use cumin, crushed red pepper, and chili powder, but you can use any kind of peppers when you are browning the meat to make it spicier. I've also used cayenne pepper too. Just depends on what I have on hand at the time.

Tomorrow I'm going to make a chicken soup in the crock pot. I'll let you know how it turns out and post the recipe if its good.
