I love crockpots! Congrats on yours!
I actually have a PDF of Weight Watchers Crockpot Recipes if anyone is interested, feel free to send me your email!
My favorite thing to do in the Crockpot is a Roast or our ribs, then we baste and grill them on the BBQ before serving!

OMG! We got a Crockpot 3 weeks ago, and we’ve been eating slow-cooked for 3 week straight! It’s sooo delicious.
1 pork roast (any lean cut)
1 beef roast or large beef cut (any)
1 chopped onion
2-3 chopped bell peppers
Packet of Menudo Mix (found in the Mexican food section)
Put it all in the pot overnight for 8 hours. Pull apart the meat after its cooked. Eat with lemon and tortillas (corn or wheat). Yum yum yum.

My favorite SIMPLE recipe that I can think of off hand: Chicken and bean tacos
A few chicken breasts (frozen is fine)
A can or two of pinto beans, rinsed and drained
A jar of your favorite salsa
A packet of taco seasoning
Cook on low for 8 hours. Take the chicken out and shred it. Mash the beans a bit and add chicken back in. Eat with your favorite taco fixings. This makes a ton so I usually bring some to work to eat over lettuce for a healthy “taco salad”

I made the most incredible ribs in the crock pot last weekend…
What you need:
- 1 standard rack of ribs
- 1 1/4 cup BBQ sauce (we use Sweet Baby Rays)
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp. worchestshire sauce
- 1/4 tsp tabasco sauce (I dont really know how much tabasco I put in. I think I shook it like 4-5 times)
- 4 shakes of chili powder (Sorry for the lack of exact measurements. This was my own concoction that turned out to be amazing!)
- Salt and pepper
- Season both sides of ribs with salt and pepper. Rub in to meat.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, flipping half way through.
- Mix sauce ingredients in bowl.
- Separate ribs from rack and place in crock pot, covering with sauce. Coat ribs well.
- Cook on low for approximately 5 hours.
I cooked ours for 6 hours and all of the meat fell off the bones. I literally pulled out completely dry bones. I can’t even put into words how amazing this pork was. The next day Fiance had the rest of the meat on a sandwich roll for lunch and he said it was awesome.

Cook a pork butt/shoulder in root beer all day on low while you’re at work. Drain the liquid, remove any bones (they will pull right out) and shred the meat with two forks. Mix in bbq sauce and you have pulled pork!

My mom made this the other night and it was really good. (You can’t ever go wrong with Southern Living recipes anyway). It’s really simple but good.
