Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
My sister recommended I try this recipe and I'm glad she did. It has a wonderful flavor, and it is easy. It is a great and easy soup/stew for cold days. UPDATE: I have now made this several times and it is great every time. I use Bill Echols Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site instead of the packaged seasoning or sometimes I use a can of enchilada sauce instead of the tomato sauce and seasonings.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
When I came home after work my hubby declared this roast was "da bomb!" I made this on a day when I didn't have time to cook or plan. So I needed something super simple to quickly throw in the crockpot. Like others, I was skeptical about all the packaged seasonings. Usually I try to make my own instead of using the prepackaged stuff but I simply did not have time nor motivation to do so on this day. I did not add salt since the packaged seasoning would have plenty. Also, I used a reduced sodium gravy mix and added probably 3/4th cup water but next time will probably stick to 1/2 cup because it made way more gravy than we needed. However, this was delicious and I am so glad I found this recipe.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This was very good. I marinated it overnight and followed the recipe with the exception of the soy sauce since I was out. I tried hoisin sauce since I had that on hand and it turned out great. I will try this again with the soy sauce.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
How can you not love this super easy, super tasty recipe. I used the Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site instead of packaged taco seasoning and left out the salt and I left out the cilantro because I used this chicken in the Pico De Gallo Chicken Quesadilla recipe which already has cilantro in the Pico De Gallo. It was excellent. I used about half the chicken but kept the seasonings the same. I will definitely be making this again.

Chicken Mango Salsa Salad with Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I am the submitter of this recipe. It is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I created this the day after a fajita dinner with mango salsa. So the salsa was pre made and the bell peppers were already chopped. So it was only a matter of assembly. It is a great way to use leftovers. It tastes great with leftover rotisserie chicken, fajita chicken or blackened chicken. In Texas there is a chain of grocery stores that makes a great mango salsa and also sells a package of pre-chopped three color peppers that can be used as a short-cut. Either from scratch or using short-cuts the salad is delicious.

Pumpkin Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
This was excellent. I followed the base recipe but tweaked it by increasing the pumpkin pie spice to 4 teaspoons and added cinnamon chips instead of walnuts. I added a glaze made of confectioners sugar, milk, and vanilla. Delicious.

Sensei's Crusty Crumbled Blue Cheese Steak Topping

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I made this topping as written for two filet mignons wrapped in peppered bacon instead of ribeye steaks. It was outstanding! The blue cheese, horseradish, bread crumbs, and butter made an excellent combination of flavors with the bacon and steak. I will definitely make this recipe again. There is no need to spend outrageous sums of money going out for a steak dinner when you can make this dish for less and it will likely taste much better than the restaurant. Thanks for sharing Ski Mom.

Bacon Gouda Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
Yum. This is a big sloppy, messy burger and it was delicious. I made it into single patties and used the gouda mixture as a topping and left it open faced. Then cut it in half for one serving. I used half Johnsonville italian sausage with half the ground beef and that really took it over the top.

HERDEZ® Turkey and Zucchini Enchiladas with Tomatillo Verde Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
My husband and I loved this recipe. I made it the night before and we had it for dinner the next evening. The flavors really melded together well. My husband said this was a keeper. I agree. The only change I made was to make it with chicken instead of turkey and I sprinkled a little homemade taco seasoning on the chicken.

Greek-Seasoned T-Bone Steaks with Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
We LOVED this recipe. I made my own greek seasoning and mixed that in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and brushed on the steaks before grilling. We used a porterhouse and it turned out delicious. Since I was out of feta cheese, I used blue cheese instead. Thanks for an excellent recipe.

Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This is so easy and delicious. Tastes just like the soup mix but without all the salt. I used no sodium beef bouillon and left out the salt. It tasted great.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
Based on previous reviews stating it was somewhat bland I made a couple of substitutions to spice it up. Instead of plain mayonnaise I used the spicy sweet mayo from my Kickin Turkey Burger recipe on this site. In addition I added a little pineapple for additional sweetness. The result was delicious.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This has a fantastic flavor. I have made it twice now, once with ground beef and once with ground chicken and prefer the ground chicken in this recipe. In no way is this bland. I like bold, spicy food and added extra garlic chili sauce to spice it up and offset the sweetness of the hoisin sauce. I made the recipe as written except used 1/2 tsp ground ginger instead of pickled and increased the chili garlic sauce to about 3 TBL and added shredded carrots and broccoli slaw to increase the vegetables in the dish. This would also make a great filling for egg rolls. Thanks for a great recipe.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I love the combination of spicy chicken, gooey cheese, and the flavorful kick of the pico de gallo. I wanted the chicken to have more flavor so I made these using leftover shredded chicken from the Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe from this site. It added even more flavor and made this recipe so easy to put together. I will be making this recipe again and again.

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This was awesome. I would give it 10 stars if I could. For me this is pure comfort food; and it is so easy. I cheated and used shredded rotisserie chicken, light cream cheese and substituted my customized Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread recipe with corn and jalapeños from this site instead of the cornbread mix. So it was a super fast dinner. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Sweet and Tangy Slow Cooker Bar-B-Q Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
My husband raved about these ribs and what I good cook I was (thanks to this recipe). I followed the recipe except I only had about a half coup of ketchups left so I used spaghetti sauce for the other 1/2 cup. Followed the recipe as written otherwise. Thanks for sharing this recipe. We will be making it again. UPDATE: After pulling leftovers out of the freezer and reheating, they still taste great. The sauce is really good.
