I love using my crock pot.

One of my favorite (and easiest) recipes is Salsa Chicken.

2 (or 3, really up to you) frozen chicken breasts
1 jar salsa (or tomatoes, if you don't want a Mexican theme)
sour cream to taste

Put chicken breasts in crockpot and dump salsa on top.  Cook low 6-8 hours or high 4-6 hours.  Half an hour before serving, take chicken out and shred it with two forks.  Add it back to the salsa and add sour cream.  Stir and let cook for 30 minutes or so.

Serve over rice.  It's really tasty!



I've tried it with Italian style tomatoes for an Italian taste and my mom's tried it with a sweeter salsa (I think it had mangoes, too?) though I don't know if she added the sour cream to that.

I do basically the same thing for my chicken tacos but I don't add the sour cream in at the end.  Just a jar of salsa and a can of green chilies, cook, shred, eat!

The ham hock and bean recipe from Cooking Light that I made yesterday. It turned out quite tasty.

We should have a crock pot challenge where all try the same recipe... such as baking a cake!  There is also a wing recipe I found on Pinterest that I am curious about...

Here is my first recipe for chicken tacos.  These are FABULOUS and so easy!  I usually also make my own shells whenever we have these.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/186336503301938106/

I actually made this yesterday.  I love my crockpot!  It is one of my most prized possessions.  Smiley  The meat was really good.  I ended up eating it over spanish rice instead of as a taco, though.  I didn't have any of the other fixings.

I'm working until 5 next Wed so I'll have to get one of these recipes into the crock pot that morning so we can sit down to a hot dinner before it's too late in the day. Thanks girls!

Put chicken breasts in crockpot and dump salsa on top.  Cook low 6-8 hours or high 4-6 hours.  Half an hour before serving, take chicken out and shred it with two forks.  Add it back to the salsa and add sour cream.  Stir and let cook for 30 minutes or so.


I have one that is even easier than that.  I use it for pretty much anything Tex-Mex. 
It is simply 4-6 frozen chicken breasts and a package of taco spice.  Put it in crock pot on low for about 4-5 hours, and then check it.  If it shreds with no trouble, it's done.  If not, up the temp to high for half an hour.

We are having pulled pork for dinner tonight!  Another easy one, pork loin, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and BBQ sauce.  Cooking on low today while I am at work.
