What are your favorite crock pot recipes? Looking for some healthy ideas, ideally I’d like to make a big batch of something on Sunday then eat it throughout the week for lunch. I’m not very picky, I like pretty much all vegetables, I eat meat (although not a lot of red meat) but also don’t mind eating vegetarian. Just looking for some low cal/low carb ideas 🙂

futuremrs2020 : we like to make pulled pork in the crockpot. We leave it pretty plain and then add different seasonings all week – BBQ, carnitas for tacos, etc. Soups are also great in the crockpot!

futuremrs2020 : Hubby and I love Italian Hillside Garden Soup. It’s a Crockpot Original recipe. It’s the first one he ever made for me and his specialty (i.e. the only recipe he’s comfortable making…lol). It’s delicious.

I mostly cook meats in my crockpot. We try to eat beef in moderation. Most of my crockpot dishes are pot roast, leg of lamb, and southwest style chicken. Sometimes ribs as well, but they come out even better in my instant pot so that’s getting more use. I also use my crockpot for overnight oats if you’re looking for breakfast ideas too.

We make a vegan Tikka Masala which is super good for you – meat free, full of spice and literally the best thing ever. It’s my fav dish
10/10 make every fortnight.

sbl99 : yummmmmmm! Great recipe thanks! I have some tofu that’s needs to be used asap and this looks amazing.

sbl99 : that came in handy. Have a block of firm tofu my aunty made and gave me today. It’s so cold here at the moment that I’m looking constantly like a plucked chicken with my skin all bumpy from the cold and a big bowl of vegan tikka masala sounds amazing at the moment!! Thanks for the recipe 👍👍

A few chicken breasts (about 4-5 small-ish was PLENTY for two people, we had leftovers that went bad we had so much left)
1 can black beans
1 can Rotel (diced tomatoes w/ green chilies) OR Salsa
Block of cream cheese (8 ounces) – I’d consider this optional if you are aiming for dairy-free, but I do believe it helps with the consistency.
1 can corn (just regular sweet kernel corn)
Fiesta Ranch Mix (the dry dip mix from Hidden Valley, find it next to the regular dry ranch) OR taco seasoning. Again, you could use your own spices to make a homemade taco seasoning.
Throw it all in the crockpot. High for 6-7 hours, Low for 4ish hours.
Shred the chicken and eat as desired. We had it fresh as a taco/burrito. Darling Husband ate the leftovers straight with some rice. Would make a good pulled chicken sandwich or over some spinach/salad mix.
I went home on my lunch break and cooked it on low and it was ready by 5pm for dinner, this was also using completely frozen chicken breasts, not defrosted. Only downside was that I did need to drain the juices before shredding because it was pretty watery once it cooked down.

I have Cooking Light’s Slow Cooker Tonight cookbook and I really like it. I typically just get recipes online, but I’m glad I bought this cookbook and I use it a lot. My favorites include chicken noodle soup and a mustard chicken recipe (sounds weird but it’s delicious).
