OK ladies I love my crockpot as I am sure you all do too. Right now I mostly use it for roasts or making refried beans. Pretty simple stuff. I was wondering if we could pool together some of everyones favortie easy recipies. I'd love more variety.
So for my roasts I don even thaw the meat I just through it in on high around mid-day from the freezer, season howver I am feeling ad a bit of water or broth and cook on high about an hour before its done I may toss in some potatoes. Ive done beef and pork
Refried beans, Just boil some pintos for a bit and then through in the crockpot with onions and seasonings until mushy, smash how much you prefer and finish seasoning

I like doing shredded bbq in the crock. Do the meat (pork or beef) on low all day and then shred. Then I add my bbq sauce and it's soooo good. Using a little cumin and liquid smoke makes it taste grillish.

thanks for the info, i JUST bought my first crock pot last weekend, i have made beans in it, they came out PERFECT!
tomatos-cut into small cubes
cilantro-pull a bunch off the stems
just cut and added about 1/3 cup
bacon- i used half the package
1 tbsn salt or less depending on your own taste, you can always add more later
and a 1 lb bag of pinto beans-washed/rinsed
add water to cover the beans and go about 1 1/2 inches above them in the crock, be sure to check on them after an hour or 2 and make sure the water stays above the beans
cook this on high for a couple of hours, its sooo GOOD and a great mexican side dish

One of my faves that my mom used to make when I was a kid.
Put a beef round steak (usually cheap meat) or eye of round in the crock and cover with Golden Mushroom Soup. Let it cook all day then serve over rice or mashed potatoes. The soup makes a gravy and the meat just falls apart.
Another thing I love to make is a vegetable soup/stew.
I don't really have a recipe I just throw in what I like/have on hand, but it is usually something like this.
2 tomatoes, or 1-2 cans of stewed tomatoes
corn, peas, green beans
sometimes I put in a pound of ground beef or ground turkey, but it is good w/o too. Sometimes I will add a can of beans.
I just keep adding until the crock is full, no water added, the veggies will give you all the liquid you will need. Let it cook all day, usually half on high then I turn it down to low. I serve it with rice and shredded cheese on top.
