Just bought a crock pot! Recipes needed!

[deleted account] ( 35 moms have responded )

As the title says, I just got a crock pot (on sale, amazing deal lol) but it doesn't come with any recipes... so I need some!

A few things... My husband doesn't eat cabbage, corn, peas or brussel sprouts!

I was also wondering if there was such a thing as crock pot enchiladas? They look and sound soooo delish but never had them before and was wondering if I could make them in the crock pot?

I look forward to trying some recipes!

Thanks in advance!

Crock Pot Chicken Enchiladas:

~About 2to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

~1 can enchilada sauce

~1/2 to 1 can green chilies (depending on how spicy u like it)

~1 bag of 8 in tortillas

~ Sour cream

~ Lettuce

~ Shredded Taco Cheese

~... whatever other toppings you like on your enchiladas!

-Cut the chicken breasts into small cubes, Prefry until cooked

- Mix the Enchilada sauce, green chilies, cooked chicken cubes, & half the tub (medium sized) of sour cream together.

-Layer sauce mixture, then tortillas (2 at a time), then cheese in the crock pot, until it reaches the top, or you are out of ingredients. End the top layer with cheese.

-Cook for 2- 4 hours or until the cheese is well melted, and some of the tortilla edges look browned!

- Top with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream.. whatever you like:)

-Tastes very good.. especially if you buy the spicy enchilada sauce instead of mild :)

We love "fiesta chicken" no exact recipe but you can adjust as needed

2-3 boneless chicken breasts
Black beans
Corn
Onion
Peppers
Diced tomatoes with juice (or the jalapeno rotelle if you like spicy)
Salt
Pepper
Chili powder
Cumin
If it seems like it needs a little liquid add water or chicken broth
cook for 6-8 hrs on low and you can easily shred chicken with a fork

This makes a ton, we serve it over rice sometimes, or make tacos, nachos, burritos, taco salad, its very versatile and usually feeds us for a few meals

I also love my "fix it and forget it" cookbook, they make a light version of the book too

You can make anything in them, just allow a little more time. I love making soups and chilli and roast in mine. it is nice to make up the soup/chilli in the morning and just let it do its thing, just have to stir once in a while.

that is the nice thing about crock pots put what ever you what in them and walk away.

You can cook ANYTHING in a crock pot. I have a 5 quart crock pot and I love to cook with it. It is also great because the left overs are easy to store in the fridge and you slow heat them back to life the next day.
I use allrecipes.com for most of my ideas but really you can do anything with a crockpot. Just make sure you put some liquid in the bottom of the pan for each thing you cook. (at least a half inch to 3 inches or more depending on the recipe.) feel free to e-mail me and I will try to type up a list of different things I have cooked in mine so far. Our 2 favorites to date is spaghetti and chili.

I don't really use recipes in mine, BUT one of my favorite things is to put in my ribs, season them and then pour a can of coke or pepsi (cokes a little better) then cook on low all day while at work. The ribs are so tender and so good!! The pop doesn't make them overly sweet either but fall off the bone YUMMY!!! I'll also put rice a little more than the required water and then seasoned chicken breasts on top. Another is chicken & dumplings, but I'm not sure where my dumpling recipie is, but basically cook your chicken in the crockpot all day well seasoned, and extra water, boneless or bone in, when you get home cut or break it up and get rid of the bones. Then put your dumplings on top and cook on high for 30-45 more minutes.... soo goood!!!

Here is one a friend has makes often and I have tried. It is Sausage and Vegetable Risotto from Food and Wine. The only piece of advice is that it takes at least 2 hours and really does need to be stirred, maybe more then once. It has a great flavor and is a fun way to get in veggies!

1. 4 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2. 3/4 pound sweet Italian sausages, casings removed
3. 3 tablespoons water
4. 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
5. 1 small onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
6. 1/2 cup dry white wine
7. 2 cups arborio rice (14 ounces)
8. 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch dice
9. 1 tablespoon kosher salt
10. 5 cups baby spinach (5 ounces)
11. 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
12. Freshly ground pepper

Directions

1. Turn a 6- to 7-quart slow cooker to high. In a saucepan, bring the broth to a simmer. In a skillet, cook the sausage with the water over moderately high heat, breaking it up with a spoon until the water has evaporated and the sausage is browned, 10 minutes. Transfer the sausage to the slow cooker.

2. In the same skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until translucent, 4 minutes. Add the wine and cook, scraping up any browned bits until the wine is reduced by half, 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook until all of the wine has been absorbed. Scrape the rice into the slow cooker. Add the hot broth, zucchini and salt and cover. Cook for 1 hour, stirring once halfway through. The risotto is done when the rice is al dente and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Turn off the slow cooker.

3. Stir the spinach into the risotto until just wilted. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and the grated cheese, season with pepper and serve immediately, passing additional cheese at the table.

I make slowcooker stew for supper lots. Just take a pkg of stew meat, cut up some veggies (potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, whatever you want) I cut the veggies in about 1 inch cubes. Throw it all in the slowcooker with any spices you want, I use garlic powder, beef oxo, seasioning salt, pepper, parsley flakes, whatever you want basically. then I mix about 1 1/4 cup - 1 1/2 cup water with a few tbsp of corn starch. Pour that on and mix it all up, I put it on low before I leave for work at about 7:00 and it is ready, really tender and yummy when we get home at 5:30 for supper!

I put pork chops with cream of mushroom soup in tyhe crockpot on low for six to eight hours. Add a cup of milk and about an hour before they're done add fresh mushrooms. Serve over white rice.

CROCKPOT MEATLOAF

1/2 cup whole milk
2 slices white bread
1 1/2 lb ground beef
2 eggs
1 small onion, peeled
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp dry mustard
1 can (12 oz.) whole tomatoes

Place the milk and the bread in a large mixing bowl, and let stand until the bread has absorbed all the milk.
With two forks, break the bread into crumbs. Beat the ground beef into the crumbs until well mixed. Make a hollow in the center of the meat and break the eggs into it.

Beat the eggs slightly; then grate the onions into the eggs. Add salt, pepper and mustard. Mix the eggs into the beef.

Shape into a round cake and place in the slow cooker.

Drain the tomatoes, and place them on the meat. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours.

Before serving, uncover the pot; turn the heat to high, and reduce the sauce. It should be thick, not thin.

CROCKPOT BANANA BREAD

1 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups well mashed, over-ripe banana (2 or 3 bananas)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With the electric beater on low, fluff the shortening in a small bowl, until soft and creamy. Add the sugar gradually. Beat in the eggs slowly.
With a fork, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture, 1/2 the bananas another 1/3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the bananas then the last of the flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts.

Turn into a greased and floured baking unit or a 2 1/2 quart mold or 2 pound metal coffee can and cover.

Place on a rack in the slow cooker. Cover the cooker, but prop the lid open with a twist of foil to let the excess steam excape. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours. (Older Crockpots with plastic covers had vents in the past!)

Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve Warm.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

A very easy recipe is to buy ribs, put them in the pot, buy BBQ sauce, put it in the pot and put it on. I am told they are fall off the bone good, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

The other thought is to go to the library and find a cookbook. There are a bunch out there.

Happy Cooking!
