My best advice? Play around with it as much as possible!! :) Also, I have a cookbook that is amazing for crockpots, I thoroughly recommend it ... the Fix It and Forget It brand cookbook for slow cookers. Fantastic recipes, even bread recipes!! You will have tons more idea flipping through there.

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 (15oz) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
1 (10oz) can enchilada sauce
1 medium onion, chipped
1 (4oz) can chopped green chile peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
2c. water
1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
1tsp. cumin
1tsp. chili powder
1tsp. salt
1/4tsp. black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 (10oz) pkg frozen corn
1tbsp. chopped cilantro
7 corn tortillas
vegetable oil

1. Put all ingredients except tortillas in crock pot and cook on low 6-8hrs OR high 3-4hrs. (after about 2 hours you should be able to shred your chicken in the crock pot.)
2. preheat oven to 400F
3. brush both sides of tortillas with oil, cut into strips and arrange on baking sheet.
4. bake 10-15min, or until crisp, sprinkle over soup before serving.



ALSO-- someone mentioned they like to make pulled chicken sandwiches. you can make really good buffalo chicken sandwiches with the same recipe, just replace the bbq sauce with 1 bottle of buffalo wing sauce and add half of a pkg of the powdered ranch dressing mix! (thats per like 4 chicken breasts)

My favorite is

Pot roast with a family size can of mushroom soup you can add another small can too.. cook 6-8 hours depending on the size until it's fork tender. I make from scratch mashed potatoes, and then boil some fresh green beans just until they still have a little bite, drain and then saute in a little olive oil, with crushed garlic (2-3 cloves) and a little sea salt.

Then the next night with the left over meat, I shred that up and put into some corn tortillas and fry them up and have shredded beef tacos. Super delish with cheese, lettuce, avocado and La Victoria's green mild sauce..

I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking in the crockpot! Its a great way to have a good meal that you don't have to fuss over. I have tons of recipes but one of my favorites is my Strawberry Pulled Pork.

1 Pork Shoulder or Butt
1 Tub Fresh strawberries or I bag frozen (fresh is best)
1 cup Katsup
Fresh garlic to taste (I use a lot)
Balsamic Vinegear or Raspberry Vinegear (both are good) about 1/4 of a cup

Salt and Pepper Pork Shoulder to taste and brown on all four sides. Put in crockpot, add strawberries, garlic, vinegear and katsup, Cook on low for about 6hours or until meat falls apart. If you want to thicken sauce you can add a tablespoon on BBQ sauce. Serve on rolls topped with coleslaw.
I promise this dish is wonder!!! Enjoy

This website has a lot of recipes, some weird, most good. All are gluten free as she has a child that can't have gluten, but to make it 'normal' just use regular flour when it calls for it. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ This woman used her crockpot every day for one year. I like this site because she feeds it to her family & they rate it.

Also I have a cookbook called Fix It and Forget It. it's a great cook book.

I have found you can use jarred spaghetti sauce and add frozen meatballs & cook them all day on low. It will taste like you've made it homemade & cooked it all day (which you did, only without any hassle).

Have fun!! I love my crockpot.

This is a stew recipe I made up. Layer the ingredients in this order:

1 marrow bone - adds richness
handful of whole wheat grains - it's better than rice, will hold it's texture and give you great flavor and nutrition.
frozen lima beans
potatoes
carrots
pearl onions - quantity depends on the size of your pot
chuck steak/roast cut into 1"-2" pieces. Flavor is better if you brown it but it's not necessary.
Can of Campbell's Cream of Onion soup mixed with 1/4 cup burgundy wine.
Cook 6-10 hours on low. Your house will smell wonderful when you come home from work.

Not sure if you like chicken dressing year round but fix your dressing up just like if you were going to bake it but put it in your crockpot. I cooked mine for 1.5 hours to 2 hours on High. It is so moist in but crunchy on the outside.

BBQ Pork roast....oh so yummy and super inexpensive. I get a medium size pork roast for my family of four. (I never pay more than $5 for one) and a bottle of BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Rays)......just add them to the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours or so.....the juices from the meat with thin the bbq sauce as it cooks so I don't add water to mine. (I do use a smaller crock pot so the sauce covers more of the meat) when its done I just shred up the roast, top with sauce from the pot and serve with any side and veggie that you like.

I don't have any set recipes but I love to do a roast in the slowcooker, I usually throw it in frozen and if I'm home add potatoes & veggies 3-4 hours before its time to eat. Another is beef stew, just like on the stove but it can cook its self while your at work!!

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ my doctor recommended this website. We have tried a few of her recipes and have been happy with them. Another rule of thumb with crock pot stuff, if you need to cook it for a long time, anything with beans or wild rice works great! Pasta gets mushy if left in for more than a few hours, so if you're starting it in the morning before you leave for work, skip the pasta, or cook it separately and add it at the end. Enjoy your crock pot! It will change your life :)

Lamb special.

put in your desired amount of lamb chops
add what ever herbs u like, I use garlic powder, paprika & mixed herbs.
add 1 1/2 cups of red wine
& 1 1/2 cups of veg stock or water
cook on high for 1 1/2 hrs

then add chopped potatoes, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, onion, beans, peas corn, or what ever other vegies you like. cook on low for 4 - 6 hrs.

the lamb should then pull of the bone easily. you may need more water or wine if you have a lot of vegies in there.
you can thicken the sauce with corn flour if you prefer.
I also cook a cup of rice & add it at the last minute.
serve on its own or with some mash potato.
my family love it & I can blend some up & put it in the freezer for the baby too if there is left overs.

I hope you enjoy it!

You can google crock pot recipes and you will end up with more than you can use. I have found that anything that I can gook in the oven I can gook in my crock pot. I even make bean soup in mine. A WORD OF CAUTION if you do make bean soup in yours DO NOT EVER ADD COLDER LIQUID THAN THE TEMP OF YOUR SOUP. If you do need to add more liquid make sure it is hot. If you add cold liquid your beans will become rock hard and will NOT SOFTEN. I learned the hard way that this happens.

Heather's chicken suggestion is also one of my favorites. You can also use salsa or pasta sauce instead of the bbq. I totally skip the browing too.

[deleted account]

i make pulled chicken sandwiches alot... i brown boneless skinless chicken breasts in a pan with some oil - till both sides are nice and brown.. then i put them in the crock pot with some bottled bbq sauce and let them cook on high for about 4 hours and then shred the chicken with two forks. usually its so tender it just falls apart. i serve them on buns with lettuce ..or in tortillas with cheese and lettuce.. well, you get the idea! you dont have to brown the chicken- you can throw it in raw and cook it on low for 8- 10 hours too!

Aha! I just used mine yesterday and I had the yummiest supper (it may have been partly because I was soooo hungry, but it was pretty darn yummy).

Here's what I did:

I cut up some big pieces of carrots and celery and put them in the bottom of the crock. then I added two whole heads of garlic (I pulled the pieces apart, but left the skin on)
Then I just set my whole chicken on top. Sprinkled with S&P and some herbes de provence and cooked it on low for 8 hours.

So easy, so yummy!
