Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

My beef stew.
Beef, onions, potatoes, a few carrots, garlic, bay leaf, rosemary, thyme, s&p, a bit of tomato paste, beef broth concentrate (like broth cubes, but much better) and half a jar of salsa. Add a bit of water and simmer. Add green beans or corn at the end.

Dh's chili. Yummmmm I can't share the recipe, because I don't know it--he won't share it with me!

Pot roast. I start with a bit of Pioneer Woman's recipe so I salt and pepper the roast (lightly salt) and sear it in a dutch oven with some oil. Then sear sliced carrots (in chunks), onion (quartered) and potatoes. When I think about it, I put in 2 ribs of celery too just for flavor. Put everything into the crockpot in order cooked (so meat first, onion, carrots, potatoes, celery) and then deglaze the dutch oven with red wine and beef broth mixed with rosemary (or any other herbs or spices you like). I usually do all that the night before and put the ceramic pot in the fridge over night. Then pop it into the crockpot in the morning, turn it on low for 8-9 hrs (depending on size of the roast) and it just falls apart. We were going to have our leftovers tonight but turns out DH ate them all.

I have two simple crock pot recipes that I use a lot:

Salsa chicken: 4 or 5 frozen chicken breasts with a jar of black bean and corn salsa. Cook on low. Shred chicken wiht a fork while still in crock pot when the chicken is done and serve over yellow rice or you can also use the chicken over tortilla chips or in taco shells. We prefer rice.

Beef tips: one package of beef tips with one can petite diced tomatoes and one envelope of beef stew seasoning (the powder kind). Cook on low and serve over rice. Smells great when you get home from work.

I've got two......

CHIPOTLE CHICKEN

3-4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 pkg cream cheese, cubed
1-2 chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (depending on how hot you want it, you can add some sauce too)
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream chicken soup
1 drained can black beans
1 drained can corn
rice or pasta

Put in crockpot for 4 hours on high...or longer on low.

ANGEL CHICKEN

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, I usually use 4
1/4 cup butter
1 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
1/2 cup white wine, usually chicken broth
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed golden mushroom soup
4 ounces cream cheese with chives
1 pound angel hair pasta or whatever you have

Place all in crockpot on low for 6 hours. I take chicken out and chop or shred and mix sauce with whisk. Then add chicken back into sauce.

Here's one more...

6 italian sausages
1 bottle chili sauce
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper

Put all in crockpot on high for 4-5 hours. Serve on buns with or without shredded mozzarella.

My son does not like the consistency of meat cooked in a crock pot (to be honest, I don't really), but I rely on it as a working mom, so here is my go-to:

Slow cooker lasagna!! It is delish.

http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/...na-114123.aspx

We do pulled pork a lot (BBQ park as described here) because that's supposed to be stringy.

Lately my crock pot has been very busy making yogurt, saving me a small fortune.

Buffalo Chicken

Chicken breast (1-2 pounds? use as much as you need)
Jar of hot wing sauce (or make your own with butter and hot sauce)
Packet of ranch dressing mix - not the actual dressing (I usually skip this because I don't keep it on hand and I have never noticed the difference)

Stick it all in the crock pot (my chicken is normally frozen) and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred chicken an hour or so before serving and let it continue to cook and soak up the sauce after shredding

Serve on rolls with or without cheese, eat it as is, make buffalo chicken dip, etc

I do a ton of soups and stews. Stuff that only gets better the longer it cooks.

couple cans of V8, baby reds, chopped celery, onion, baby carrots, 2# stew meat, 1/2 can of beer, bunch of spices (I kind of throw in whatever sounds good that day), cook all day. Before serving I throw in about 3/4 cup of brown rice or farro and some corn.

Boil down a chicken carcass, strain/drain. Use that stock + chicken breasts, a little water, chopped veggies, any seasonings you want, and cook on low all day. before serving, add in some rice, or boil up noodles and add them. Voila...chicken and veggie soup.

French Dip Sandwiches

Eye of round roast
1 can french onion soup
1 can beef broth
1 can beer
Put in crockpot. Cook on low 8 hours. Serve in crusty french rolls.

Some other people have already posted salsa chicken, but I do mine a little differently.

1 package of skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 envelope of low sodium taco seasoning (or a couple of tablespoons of Penzey's chicken taco seasoning)
1 jar of salsa

Dump all into the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

If you want, stir in some sour cream at the end of the cooking time.

Serve on tortillas with cheese, or over rice.

Yum. =)
