    love it... keep recipes coming! also... question for you loyal slow cooker users:
    can you usually let your meals cook on low for as long as 11-12 hours? I usually see 8-10 listed for low but I need it to go a little longer... think it's OK and won't dry out if cooking that long?

    Crock Pot - Roast Beef - Very simple.. and EASY!!!!

    1 pot roast (I use the blade roast cut.... but anything will do)
    1 package of onion soup mix (low sodium)
    1 can of Campbell's mushroom soup (low sodium)

    Place roast in crock. Spoon over the entire roast - the soup. Sprinkle the package of soup mix on top. Put on low for 8 hours.
    Soup will make an amazing gravy too - I pour it into a pot and thicken it with a bit of water / corn starch.... YUM!

    You can also put cut up potatoes, carrots, celery on the bottom of the crock, then place the roast on top... dinner!!!

    CROCKPOT CHICKEN TACOS

    1lb boneless skinless chicken breast (I just pick up a package of chicken breasts: I think there are 3 breasts in there).
    2 cups mild salsa (Use mild salsa only or it will be too hot).
    2 Tb taco seasoning
    1/2 green bell pepper
    1/2 yellow onion
    Flour tortillas
    And any fixings you want to eat with it


    Place chicken breasts in the crock pot (no need to wash them).
    Pour 2 cups mild salsa on top.
    Sprinkle with taco seasoning
    Add veggies.
    Stir a bit.
    Cook on high 4 hours or low 6 hours ( I like low best).
    Crock pot goes on warm when done so it's okay if you aren't home.

    Before serving shred with a fork.
    Serve with flour tortillas, shredded lettuce, sour cream, fresh cilantro etc...whatever you like!

    Here is the taco seasoning recipe if you want to make your own.
    I just make it and place in a tupperware . Use 2 Tb ONLY of this mixture for the recipe.

    My favorite breakfast. I substitute margarine for the butter, abd I add either an entire apple or a can (10.75 oz) of pumpkin puree to a double batch. This also freezes well!!

    Ingredients

    1 cup steel cut oats
    3 1/2 cups water
    1 cup peeled and chopped apple
    1/2 cup raisins
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Directions

    Place the steel cut oats, water, apple, raisins, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into a slow cooker, and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and allow to cook 6 to 7 hours (for firm oats) or 8 hours (for softer texture).
    New recipe my husband and I created yesterday...

    Loaded Baked Potato Soup! Om nom nom.

    8 med. potatoes, diced with skin
    4 cups water
    1 cube chicken bouillon
    5 Tbsp dried onion (or 1 lg onion, finely chopped)
    8 oz - 2% medium cheddar cheese, cubed
    4 oz - 2% colby jack cheese, cubed
    8 oz fat free cream cheese, cubed (ish)
    2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

    Come home, stir, and serve with a dollop of sour cream and garnish with chives.

    It is soooo yummy and low cal :)

    Sounds really yummy... but I think I will choose a different BBQ sauce. Sweet Baby Ray's is THE BEST FLAVOR... however the calories are like 70/Tbsp and the sugar content is outrageous... There are quite a few other brands that are half that. Every little bit helps;)
