For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

10 of my Favourites Slow-Cooker Recipes

I love my slow-cooker, otherwise known as crockpot. It makes cooking so easy and is handy for a lot of different situations. It really saves the day when I have to be out of the house the whole day, or need to bring something to church and need a large quantity.
 
Slow Cooker Recipes Round-Upl
 
I have a lot of recipes that I really love and that regularly make it on our menu, so I decided to share ten of those with you all: 
 
Chili: Any Chili recipe can be made in the crockpot. So, go ahead and try that Chili recipe of your in there. If you do not have any at all, you can try this Chili Recipe. I just add cocoa powder and sugar to mine and use black bean instead of pinto optionally.
 
Chicken and Potatoes: a whole meal in the crockpot.
 
Chicken Tortilla Soup: great with guacamole, sour cream and cheese

Taco Soup: also eaten with avocado, sour cream and cheese. Ground beef sauteed with garlic, onion and green pepper (optional). 1 can of black beans, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup salsa, 1-2 cup of beef broth, paprika, cumin, and taco or Tex Mex seasoning (about 2 Tbps). Cook for 4 -6 hours on low. Towards the end of the cooking add a small drained can of corn.
 
Lasagna Soup: easy version
 
Potato Soup: wonderful with some French or Italian bread.

Crockpot Ravioli Casserole or some version thereof of pasta and ground beef.

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup An easy week day meal and delicious.
 
All Day Red Bean Soup perfect for that left over ham bone.
 
Cajun Chicken: This is my go to recipe. Chicken thighs and/or drumsticks, seasoned with salt, pepper and cajun seasoning (generously). Add to crockpot with one diced onion and 2-3 crushed garlic. Pour 2-3 Tbsp of Balsamic vinegar on top, and let it cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-6 hours.
This works well with a whole chicken as well, or in the oven.

Italian Wedding Soup: Works also with pork or chicken meatballs.

These are just starters. I often adjust recipes with what I have on hand. The crockpot is a great useful machine. So take it out and be creative!
