Crockpot recipies?
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.

Re: Crockpot recipies?
thanks for the info, i JUST bought my first crock pot last weekend, i have made beans in it, they came out PERFECT!
i add
tomatos-cut into small cubes
cilantro-pull a bunch off the stems
onion-white onion
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

This is a current fave:

3-4 chicken breasts

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low 4-5 hours. Shred chicken and serve mixture over cooked white rice. Yum!
