I make a really easy one where you put in frozen chicken breasts, pour a packet of dry italian salad dressing mix, and then pour a cup or maybe a bit less of water over it.

Dude: 

Frozen corn

black beans

4 chick breasts

 onion (chopped)

mushroom (chopped)

1 jar salsa

1 pckg. taco seasoning (or homemade taco seasoning–much better)

Cook 4-6 hours.  About 30 minutes before you are ready to eat, add one brick of cream cheese.  TO. DIE. FOR. 

Many tweaks can be done to this as well.  I sometimes add canned tomato as well.

@MademoiselleL:  I have a recipe VERY similar to yours.  Instead of 1 packet of Italian dry seasoning, add 2 packets AND the juice from a jar of jalepeno’s (or add the jalepeno’s if you’re brave enough).  Cook for about 6 hours and you have a yummy meal.  It alone, in a tortilla, or on bread.  YUM!

Chicken and bean tacos

Bunch of frozen chicken breasts (4+)

can or two of beans (i go with pinto)

packet of taco seasoning

jar of salsa

cook on low for 8 hours.  Shred the chicken and mash the beans a bit before you put the chicken back in.  I entertain a lot with this and make a big taco bar.  Always goes over well.  I also will freeze a small portion (1/2-1 cups) and will defrost for a quick lunch or dinner and put over lettuce and add a bit of cheese.  Amazing!

I love to put in a pork roast, add TONS of carrots (like a bag and a half of little carrots), celery and potatoes. Then I add water to the point of almost covering the roast (usually around 1 1/2 cups). Before putting my roast in I make a rub of salt, pepper, garlic salt and maybe some random herbs. Let sit for around 8 hours and have an amazing dinner for that night!

I make turkey chili in mine….

1 lb ground turkey

1 can diced tomatoes

1 jar of salsa

1 can red kidney beans

1 small yellow onion

chili powder (to taste)… I use like half the container, but I like spicy

cumin (to taste)

salt and pepper

I just cook up the turkey meat and onion first, but you don’t have to….

Throw it all in the crock pot for at least 4 hours on low…

Yum.

Chicken/Beef +  BBQ sauce (about 1/2bottle of your favorite) + 1/3c beer (drink the rest, or use water). Low for 8-12 hours, shred, toss with juice/more sauce. –> lazy-girl’s BBQ

Sometimes I bulk it out with vegetables (finely chopped onion, carrot, etc) to make it more healthy.
