This is super easy to make and something I prefer over ground beef tacos! If I'm not making carnita tacos I'm making this one ;) Place in warm or fried corn tortillas and served with your favorite taco toppings. I like lettuce, onion, avocado and salsa myself ;)
Something my husband and I came up with. This is a great recipe because it lends itself so well to tweaking! To me this is a very mild dip, not bland, but mild as far as the spices go, as posted. If you like it spicier, add some finely diced jalapenos or cayenne pepper to your liking. We love spicy food but for some reason we enjoy this milder dip! Enjoy! Serve with tortilla chips for dipping. The cooking times are approximate as they will vary with your crock pot. I imagine you could make this on the stove top or make this in the microwave and then place it in the crock pot to keep warm. This also, halves very easily for a smaller crowd!
Great for football games or appetizers for a casual get-to-gether. From Cooking with Reynolds Wrap. It says to use a slow cooker liner to make clean up easy, but I just put it straight into the crock. 2 hours of cook time, is the time it takes to cook in the crock pot.
From Betty Crocker -- Slow Cooker recipes. NOTE: Posted as written, however, I cook the rice separately usually the night before if it is a work day, refrigerate the rice and then add it during the last 15-20 minutes to avoid mushy rice!
One of my favorite crock pot recipes. Great for cold winter nights when the days are short and the nights are long dark and cold! Warms you from the inside out! From bettycrocker.com This note is on the website with this recipe: Note: "This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature."
From Betty Crocker -- always a hit! :) Yum! Sometimes I use strawberry jelly or apple jelly for a different sweet flavor. I usually cook mine in a dutch oven then transfer to a crock pot on the warm setting.
I found this at TLC while looking for something else and I am glad I did! This makes a great weeknight meal because it uses quick prepared ingredients. I just use whatever frozen mixed veggies I have on hand. This is not gourmet, but it is warm and filling and very good. I serve in bread bowls or with crusty french bread on the side.
From the fix it and forget it lightly cookbook. Creamy and yummy, but not very guilty. We like this served over brown rice or herbed rice. Please note that the cooktime is for chicken breast halves NOT whole chicken breasts. Adjust accordingly. Also, this is intended for crockpots with heating elements in the sides and bottom not the ones with heating elements on the bottom.
Not sure where I found this online, but I altered it (for fat/calorie content) and we really love this. I use my own homemade apple butter for this that I love! :) Enjoy and if you figure out where this came from, let me know!
This is a great departure from the typical chicken taco soup for when I want a healthier mexican flavored dish. The tomatoes, please use your best judgement on the type of tomatoes -- I have used both the rotel tomatoes and just plain tomatoes depending on what's on hand :D But use them to the taste of your family. This is a chunky stew with a thin broth -- not thick like a chowder. Also I like to use Kathy's Recipe #28011 for the fajita seasoning! Mmmm love it! :D
Pretty much a basic weeknight meal -- this is not gourmet, but it is warm and filling and easy to make it. If you are expecting something gourmet that will knock your socks off then please don't stop. However, this is quite tasty and filling while meatless! We will add leftover grilled chicken on top (or whatever leftover meat we have -- pork tenderloin, steak, pork chops etc). Also -- this forms a thin almost soup like sauce -- if you want it thicker then use half the soup, but we like ours thin so it really gets in the rice :) This is also really good served over baked potatoes! This is just "simple food" and it adjusts well to more or less spices depending on your personal tastes!
