I LOVE using my crock-pot! Tonight we had chicken fajitas from the crock-pot. This could easily feed 4-6 people (Its usually just the two of us, but I make extras for leftovers lunch)
I place an entire bag of 3 pepper & onion blend frozen veggies in the crock-pot. You can use fresh if you prefer, but I like to keep things low fuss. Add two crushed garlic cloves, a can of drained diced tomatoes (no salt is my preference), and some spices -I usually add 1/4t cumin, 1/4t chili powder, 1/2t turmeric (I'm obsessed), 1/4t curry, a little onion powder, garlic powder, Mexican oregano, dried chives, thyme, or sage... really I just throw in whatever sounds good to me that day, but I always put the first four in. Then I throw in 4 chicken breasts. Cook on high for about 4 hours or low for 8. You may need to drain off some excess juice. Shred chicken with two forks and serve with tortillas (I prefer the soft thick flour ones for this meal), some shredded cheese, sour cream or greek yogurt, lettuce, tomato. You can do rice as a side or refried beans or corn, which is what my husband prefers.
Pork roast just seasoned with whatever sounds good and a little broth or stock that is on hand is always simple and delicious.
Honestly, I don't measure much and am bad at giving instructions, but you can't mess this up.
What are stumbling blocks and defeat before you, can be stepping stones to victory if you remain determined.
