Every Year around this time I always check the disboards for new crockpot recipes. I have used many yummy recipes. It is definately a good time of year for crockpot meals and Easymeals for all the people on the go! Here are a couple of new Budget friendly meals that I have used lately.

2 carrots peeled

Sounds yummy. I love crock pot meals!

One of my favorites:
Smothered Meat Load

1 lb of ground pork
1 lb of ground beef
1 can of evaporated milk
1 can cheader cheese soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 container of mushrooms
1 pack of beefy onion soup mix (Knorr or Wylers)
1 box of shake and bake (both packs)
1 egg
1 package of O Brian Potatoes. (by Oreida - hashbrowns that have green pepers and onion in it)

Mix pork, beef, egg, milk, one package of beefy onion soup mix, full box of shake and bakd (both packs) and half a can of cheader cheese soup together.

Pour package of o Brian Potatoes into the crock pot covering the bottom completely.

form the meat mixture into a ball and place in the center of the potatoes. You do not want the meat to touch the edge of the crockpot. Potatoes will protect the bottom.

Pour remaining cheader cheese soup, cream of mushroom soup and mushrooms over the top

Turn on low and cook for 8 hours!

My whole family loves this!

Chili:

1 large can petite diced tomatoes
1 large can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
2 cans black beans
1 lb ground beef
1 package Carroll Shelby's chili mix kit
1-2 diced green peppers
1-2 diced onions
Jalapenos to taste (if you like it hot)

Put all ingredients in crock pot, stir, cook for 8-10 hours on low.

I use Walmart brand everything, and as I am trying to lose weight, I usually use the leanest ground beef I can (96/4) but I am sure that you could make it cheaper by using the less lean stuff.

4-5 boneless chicken breasts

1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans


1 (15 ounce) can corn


1 (15 ounce) jar salsa, any kind


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

Directions
1)Take 4-5 frozen, yes, frozen, boneless chicken breasts put into crock pot.
2)Add 1 can of black beans, drained, 1 jar of salsa, 1 can of corn drained.
3)Keep in crock pot on high for about 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked.
4)Add 1 package of cream cheese (just throw it on top!) and let sit for about 1/2 hour.
5)All done and enjoy!

Edited to add: I usually serve it over white rice!

I bet that would make a great enchilada filling too... I do the same thing as the above recipe without the cream cheese, and with a can of green chilis, a sliced onion, and chopped cilantro added in, and then stuff enchiladas with it.


Okay, now I'm hungry!

Salsa Chicken

This is a great one I got online a couple months back and my family loves it!

Salsa Chicken

4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1 cup salsa
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream


put chicken in slow cooker, sprinkle seasoning on top. Add soup and salsa and cook on low 6 hours. Add sour cream after cooked and stir together. Serve over white rice.

* I have cooked on high for less time MOST times I have made it, and works out just fine. It has become my quick meal in a pinch. Also I use the cream of mushroom- Healthy Request, and I use only a half packet of seasoning to cut the sodium, and the taste is still great! ENJOY!

How about meatless crock pot meals, anyone??
I do make a vegetarian chili, but other ideas would be appreciated.

You can make the Vegetable Beef soup, just leave out the ground beef, maybe add tofu if you like that.

Same with the chili... subsititute some kind of beans for the ground beef? Maybe kidney or chili beans? And/or add in a can of corn?

I made Honey Baked Chicken the other night. It was really easy and very tasty.

4 split chicken breasts
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp melted butter
2 tsp mustard
1/2 paprika

Place chicken in the crock pot, mix remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Bake on low for 5-6 hours.
