Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Loved this soup! Dump all ingredients in a crockpot and go ... perfect kind of recipe in our busy household. I used a can of petite diced tomatoes, a can of shoepeg corn (didn't have frozen on hand), and skipped the cilantro. Served with bowls of crushed up Tostitoes. sour cream, and shredded cheese so everyone could add what they wanted (of course, I used all 3 ... delicious!) Super easy! Will definitely make again.

Pot Roast Dips
I made this last night for a card party, and there was NOTHING LEFT. It was a big hit, and several people asked for the recipe. I absolutely will make this again! The only changes I made was using low sodium beef broth instead of water, Lipton 'Beefy' onion soup mix instead of the regular onion soup mix, and slices of provolone instead of shredded mozarella. Next time I will use smaller sandwich buns ... I served this buffet-style where everyone built their own sandwich, and everyone took too much meat to fill their big hoagie buns. It was slim pickings for those unlucky enough to be at the end of the line! I'm planning 1/2 lb per person from now on. Even though it looks like a lot of meat when it first goes into the crockpot, the meat is heavily marbled so will shrink substantially as it cooks. Besides, I want LEFTOVERS!!

Beef, Bean and Barley Stew
We loved this stew! It was just a little bland, so here are the changes I made: I doubled the spices (pepper, oregano, basil, rosemary, and caraway). I used a full cup of barley and added enough water to compensate. I used pre-shredded cabbage, about 2 c. packed. Then all I did was brown the beef and onion together, then tossed everything else in a (large) crockpot and cooked it on low all day. Super easy and turned out great! I also added a can of garbanzo beans just for fun. My husband and I both think that a can of sweet corn would be a great addition as well -- I'm adding that next time. It's a keeper!
