    This one!

    http://www.theironyou.com/2015/01/easy-creamy-crock-pot-chicken-tikka.html

    I made this the other day and it was pretty good, not too difficult to prepare. I found Garam Masala at Bulk Barn way cheaper than buying a jar from the supermarket, and I used coconut milk instead of cream to reduce the calories. (The chicken doesn't have to be organic, either, unless you want to pay extra!) Mine did not come out yellow like the pictures on that page, and I have no idea why his did - yes it's got turmeric in it, but not enough to cancel out the redness of the tomato sauce! Mine was, to be totally honest, a rather dull reddish brown... but it tasted good!

    I don't like too much heat so I only used the 1/2 tsp of cayenne suggested, but I could have used a little more and still been able to eat it. So if you like your food spicy, go ahead and increase that!

    It keeps in the fridge and was still tasty when we had some more 3-4 days later, and it also freezes well. :)

    Chile Verde (Mexican Stewed Pork) is one of my favorites and it is easy with lots of leftovers that freeze well. http://www.melskitchencafe.com/chili-verde-mexican-stewed-pork/

    This one has the photos... :)http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/228507/crock-pot-cheeseburgers-w-pics/p1

    It looks... well... interesting. I have no idea what Velveeta cheese is or whether we'd like it, and I haven't been through the 19 pages of that thread yet - has anyone made it without the cheese and added some when serving instead? Would that work, or is the cheese necessary to stop the beef drying out (since there's not much liquid)?

    I found this recipe and love it.
    Slow Cooker Meatball Vegetable Soup

    Yields: 6 servings

    Ingredients
    •1 pound small meatballs (store bought or homemade)
    •24oz jar of pasta sauce (about 2.5 cups)
    •4 cups low sodium chicken broth
    •1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped
    •3 cups green beans, ends cut off and cut into bite-sized pieces
    •1 medium-sized zucchini, ends cut off and cut into bite-sized pieces
    •1 medium-sized yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)

    Directions
    1.Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.
    2.Cover, and cook on “low” for 8 hours or until veggies are soft.

    To Freeze

    Combine all ingredients (except chicken broth) in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible, seal, and freeze for up to three months. When ready to cook, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and add to slow cooker with chicken broth. Cook on “low” setting for 8 hours or until veggies are soft.

    This soup tastes great with a piece of crusty bread on the side. Enjoy!

    This is my absolute favorite!

    Mexican Crockpot Soup

    Ingredients:
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 lbs boneless chicken breasts (I used three)
    1 ½ cups chopped red onion
    2 chopped red bell peppers
    chicken bone broth (amount depends on how soupy you like it)
    ¼ cup chopped cilantro
    1 Tbsp Cumin
    2 Tbsp (or more) chopped chipotle chile in adobo
    6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
    2 (28oz) fire roasted tomatoes
    1 (4 oz) chopped green chilies, undrained
    vegetables
    Salt and pepper
    ¼ cup chopped cilantro

    Instructions
    Heat a large skillet and brown the chicken in the olive oil.
    Add everything except the cilantro in the crockpot and stir it up
    Cook on low for 5 hours. Shred chicken and put it back in the pot. I add lots and lots of vegetables at this time (zucchini, cauliflower, green beans, spinach, etc) and, if using fresh, cook for another hour or so. If using frozen, just put them in the pot and the heat of the soup will cook them..

    crock pot chicken tacos

    1 jar of salsa, your choice (i like newman's peach salsa)
    1 can of corn, drained & rinsed
    1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
    1 pound (or thereabouts) boneless skinless chicken breasts (can even still be frozen)

    literally dump it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours. shred with two forks and serve on tortillas or, as i like it, on a salad. YUM!

    Oh, on a salad, that sounds divine! I eat chicken on salads but wouldn't have thought of adding this. Great share, thanks so much!! :smiley:
    Most definitively YUM!
