Easy Slow Cooker Chicken
Added the rice to the soup and mixed thoroughly before adding the chicken and lots of sliced fresh mushrooms. The rice went directly from crunchy to soggy without passing through fluffy. A problem? Nothing that a bit of creative marketing didn't solve. I simply called it "chicken risotto". My wife loved it.

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak
Made it according to the recipe. I wonder if results vary with the brand name of the onion soup mix? Mine wasn't salty enough (and we are no-added-salt people). I slow-cooked it on low for 8 hours but the meat wasn't as tender as it might have been. The "gravy" was thin:, not bad but less water or some flour to thicken it might have helped. Lastly, the color turns out pretty bland. I served with sliced peppers, green, red and yellow, that improved the presentation. My wife loved it. Should recipes that depend on pre-made ingredients (like the onion soup mix) include brand names?

Lime Chicken Picante
This is a winner! The original recipe left us with some big questions like "What kind of salsa?" When I went to the grocery store I wondered about many possible choices: mild, medium (they had no "hot"), mango? I'll bet any of the fresh salsas in your market would work but would make this an entirely different dish. The medium-hot salsa proved to be too tame for our tastes. I first added a bit of LA hot sauce, but it was still kinda' bland. 'Corrected that with a few dashes of habanera extract. Also, don't forget to salt it lightly. There are only two of us at home now, but I (the "hubbie") usually make a recipe for 4 or 6, and we use the excess for other meals. This morning I sauteed one of the leftover picante chicken breasts with two coarsely diced fresh tomatoes from our garden. Delicious, healthy, and compatible with our diet if the caloric estimate for one serving is correct. As I said at the beginning, "this is a winner!" IMHO. Don't just copy it. Modify this recipe to suit your tastes and clean out your refrigerator. P.S. In looking at the other ratings, you either love this or you hate it.
