    My favorite for a nice piece of beef is SUPER EASY. It's literally- beef, a pouch of the Liptons Onion Soup mix that comes in the blue box, and a cup of water.

    Lol! I just realized that. I meant pressure cooker. I have a slow cooker already... bless my heart. It does have slow cooker settings.

    Not sure how to adjust the recipe from slow cooker to pressure cooker, but Salsa Verde Chicken is my go to.
    Interesting. I would order a chicken, spinach and creme cheese burrito at a Mexican restaurant. I made it at home a few times after I left the area were that restaurant was located. Your idea sounds like a great way to make it, adding spinach.

    Not sure how to adjust the recipe from slow cooker to pressure cooker, but Salsa Verde Chicken is my go to.

    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 blocks Neufchatel cheese (low fat cream cheese)
    1 jar salsa verde

    Low for 8 hours or high for 5. Shred chicken and let sit for 10-15 min to thicken.

    It's easy, cheap, and FREAKING AWESOME.

    I do something similar. Instead of salsa verde I add diced tomato, green chili, black beans and corn. 8-10 hours on low...AMAZING!

    One of my favorites. You can use 1 lb. 93% lean ground beef if you prefer, just adjust the calories. Makes 6 big servings.
    Crock Pot Lasagne

    The Ingredients:

    1.5 tsp basil, dried
    1 tsp oregano, dried
    1 container (1 4/5 cup (121g) ea.), Diced Tomatoes, No Salt Added, Canned
    6 oz(s), Tomato Paste, 100% Natural
    1 large, Onions, raw
    2 clove(s), Garlic, raw
    0.25 cup(s), Water - Municipal
    0.50 cup(s), Egg substitute - Liquid
    8 oz(s), Fat Free Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
    0.50 cup(s), Cheese, parmesan, grated
    1 container (15 pieces (51g) ea.), Lasagne No Boil Pasta
    1 container (3 cups ea.), Veggie Crumbles
    1 container (3 4/5 cups ea.), Low Fat Ricotta Cheese

    The Directions:

    Saute onions until a little soft. Add diced tomatos, tomato paste, water, garlic and herbs. Add veggie crumbles. If sauce seems a bit thick or dry, add up to 1 cup additional water.

    Mix ricotta and egg substitute until smooth. Set aside about ½ cup shredded mozzarella. Mix the rest in with the ricotta.

    Start layering:
    --put a ladle-full of sauce mixture into the bottom of your crockpot.
    --top with a layer of dried lasagna noodles. You'll have to break them to fit
    --smear ricotta cheese on top of lasagna noodles
    --ladle on some more of the meat sauce
    --top with more dry noodles and repeat layers until crock is to desired capacity, ending with noodles, then sauce on top.

    cover and cook on low for 8 hours, high for 4.
    Check noodles an hour before serving, and push the top ones down into the liquid if they are getting too hard or are curling up. Add remaining shredded cheese and ½ cup grated parmesan.

    Make soups, stews or casserole. Buy bones with meat or a small chicken or stewing steak. Add onion, tomatoes carrot, celery glaric and any basic herbs or spices you like. 1cup water or enough water to cover 3/4 if tightly packed. Cook, strip the meat when well cooked, discard bones. Taste, decide if soup or stew. As a small household I also now divide into portions and freeze. This is your basic meat stock which can also be used for stew pasta or curries. For soup add water and any other veg, for stew add potato pumpkin, carrots wine etc to cooker. Curry: add spices, a banana to thicken, left over chutney to flavour veg etc. For satay add peanut butter.

    Last month someone (I don't remember who) suggested making slow cooker pull pork with pork tenderloin. I don't care for pork tenderloin but I gave it a try. Pulled Pork tenderloin in a slow cooker is very good. (Carolina Style of course) One of my favorite meals with less fat.

    This is great as leftovers and freezes well, too.

    5 cups of water
    1/4 cup fresh parsley or 2 tbsp dried parsley
    1 1/2 cups dry lentils
    2 medium carrots, sliced (I usually use a bag of frozen)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    2 celery stalks, sliced
    15 oz tomato sauce

    Mix ingredients together in slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours. 15 minutes in pressure cooker with quick release.

    I usually cook up some ditalini or elbow pasta to serve in the soup.
