Anyone have any crock pot recipes that are healthy and tasty? I love using the crock pot and it's really easy and fits with my schedule. I'd love any recipes you can send my way. I do have one:

Taco Soup

3 cans black beans
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 package of McCormick's taco seasoning

Mix it all together, crock pot all day and then eat like this:

Put the soup in a bowl, eat with tortilla chips or tortillas. Put a dab of fat free sour cream on top and some cheese if you want.

It sure is yummy.

I believe there's a bunch of crockpot recipes in the recipe section. Can probably run a search and find 'em.

I tried that Shao and didn't get many at all. I'll try again with a few different spellings of crock pot or crockpot.....

I received an email from rugged magazine saying the new issue (online) contained crock pot recipes. Might be worth a look.

I've got a variation of one cooking as we speak. It's called picante chicken. The recipe is simple: 2-3 chicken breasts and a can of Pace picante sauce. Throw it in a crock on low and lets it cook for 6-8 hours. They say you can even put in frozen chicken. I did mine as listed but added a can of black beans and a chopped onion. We'll eat it over rice. I'll post tomorrow how it was.

Worked great except may I suggest that you throw the black beans in at the end. Thay kinda cooked to death. Other than that it was great.

Steel cut oats in the crockpot, turn it on before bed with cinnamon, splenda, nonfat milk, and a handfull of dried cranberries, blueberries, or your favorite dried fruit. Ready in the morning, best oatmeal you've ever had. Gets a little brown crust on top. The smell might even get your @$$ out of bed early.

For what it's worth i've got a Rival. Really had no choice in the matter. It was a christmas gift but it works great.

How was that chicken, midee?

I picked up a 6 qt Rival last night. The next batch of chicken breasts will go in there.

On the rare occasions when my wife assigns cooking duty to me, you can bet your butt it's Rival to the rescue. :rolleyes:

Excellent. My only suggestion is to throw in the black beans at the end. Mine kind of cooked to death.

How do you exactly put something in "at the end"? Sorry if this is a stupid question. :micro:

Not a stupid question. I just should have put them in about the last 15-20 minutes of cooking time to warm them.

I did the 3lbs of Chicken, 1 bottle Pace Picante recipe and it was fabulous. I didn't know that chicken could be so tender. Very excellent. I'm looking forward to trying some new recipes.

I'll have to agree. Very moist and tender.

I'm a big fan of the Crock-Pot...easy way to make good food with no fussing.

I have a Rival model with Hi/Low/Auto-Shift options. The auto-shift is what I use most because it gets everything up to cooking temp and then keeps it there by shifting between high and low, rather than being stuck at one or the other. I've looked recently though and I don't seem to see that option any more. Anybody else know about this?
