Crock pot fajitas

You will need:

  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper,sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in strips (or steak)
  • 1 packet of your favorite taco/fajita seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon ts fiesta party dip mix
  • 1 cup water
Slice all the veggies and meat in long strips and place in the crock pot. Top with seasonings and water. Cook on low for 8 hours or until meat is tender. Top with sour cream, cheese, salsa, guacamole, or any of your favorite toppings!

We had my sister-in-law and her husband over for din din a few weekends ago and these were on the menu. They turned out really yummy. I was worried the veggies were going to be soggy after cooking in the crock all day (we like our veggies crunchy) but they weren’t at all! Will be trying this with steak next time, so good. The meat gets so tender from cooking so long on low.


Pepper steak over rice

Pepper steak

You will need:

Pound beef to tenderize. Cut beef into thin strips. Brown beef in oil in skillet.

Transfer to slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, Garlic Garlic, Onion Onion, sugar, salt, pepper and ginger in a bowl. Pour over meat.

Cover, cook on low for 5-6 hours. Add green peppers and tomatoes. Cook for another hour. Serve over your favorite rice.

I mainly just tried this recipe because it looked easy and I knew my husband would like it but WOW this was amazing! The steak had the best flavor! Highly recommend this one for your entire family!



Slow cooker stuffed peppers

Stuffed peppers


You will need:

Combine first two ingredients, set aside.

Cut the top off each pepper; remove core, seeds and white membrane. In a bowl combine remaining ingredients; mix well and spoon into peppers.

Stand peppers up in a slow cooker. Pour soup over them. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, until peppers are tender.

Of course we topped them with shredded cheese! Only in Wisconsin!


Slow cooker pesto lasagna




You will need:

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef with Onion Onion until beef is no longer pink. Add Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix, sauce, water and paste and stir to blend. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, parmesan and mozzarella. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. ( you can use a crock pot if that’s all you have but it is easier to use a rectangle slow cooker for lasagna .) Spoon a layer of meat mixture onto bottom of slow cooker. Add a double layer of uncooked lasagna noodles- break the noodles to fit slow cooker if needed. Top noodles with a portion of the cheese mixture, then top with meat mixture. Repeat the layering of noodles, cheese and meat sauce until all ingredients are used. Cook on low for 6 hours. Check halfway through cooking- if lasagna is too dry add 1/2 cup of water.


Best and easiest lasagna I have EVER made! Our whole family loved this!



Slow cooker garlic beef stroganoff


You will need:

  • 1 Tbsp. TS Garlic Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. TS Onion Onion
  • 1 1/2 lbs. beef stew meat, cubed
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 14.5 oz can of beef broth ( I used two beef bouillon cubes mixed with water)
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water
  • 8 oz onion & chive cream cheese
  • Wide egg noodles prepared

Combine first five ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Combine cornstarch with cold water; stir until smooth. Whisk cornstarch mixture into slow cooker; stir until thickened. Add cream cheese just before serving; stir until well blended. Serve over hot egg noodles.

Another super easy slow cooker recipe that was delicious! Usually beef stroganoff is made with sour cream but the onion & chive cream cheese gave it a whole new taste! yum!
