Any good slow cooker/crock pot recipes?

Just bought a new slow cooker and need some good slow cooker recipes or a good site where they have some.


  1. These are more for family on budgets. They are so good and makes great pot luck ideas.

    1 lb. hamburger
    1 onion, chopped
    1 sm. can chilies
    1 sm. can mild enchilada sauce
    1 can golden mushroom soup, undiluted
    1 can cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
    1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
    1 can cream of celery soup, undiluted
    1 lg. pkg. Dorito chips
    Brown hamburger and chopped onion, pour off grease. Put all ingredients in crock pot except Dorito chips. Mix and cook low 4 to 6 hours. Last 15 minutes before you are ready to eat, add Dorito chips and stir.

    3-4 c. cooked, diced chicken
    1 pkg. (10-12) flour tortillas
    1 med. onion, chopped
    2 (10 oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
    1 can (1 c.) tomatoes & chilies
    4 tbsp. quick cooking tapioca
    4 c. grated Cheddar cheese
    In a large bowl mix chicken, soup, tomatoes, chilies and tapioca. Rip 2 to 3 tortillas into pieces and line the bottom of a 5 quart crockpot. Add 1/3 of the chicken mixture; top with 1/3 of the onion and cheese. Repeat layers of tortillas, chicken mixture, onion and cheese two more times. Cover; cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3 hours. For a smaller 3 quart crockpot makes 1/2 recipe. This is a good take-in dish or potluck.

    2 1/2 c. diced ham
    8 med. sliced potatoes
    Salt and pepper
    2 sm. onions, sliced
    1 green pepper, sliced
    Place in layers in crock pot. Add 1 can cheddar cheese soup, 2 tablespoons water, and squirt of prepared mustard. Cook on low setting all day.
