Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup
This is a great Base to your soup. I followed the reviews and used one can cream of chicken soup one can broth. I added green onions, carrots (I just had a lot in the fridge), crushed red peppers, black pepper, and about 2 tbs of garlic powder and onion powder. I also used fresh turkey instead of canned chicken, I had alot of that left over from Thanksgiving. The soup was a big hit. I was looking forward to having leftovers to bring to work for lunch... it didn't last that long at my house. I had people peeking in my crock pot looking for more! Experiment and make this recipe your own! Fantastic, I'm making it again next week!

Buffalo Chicken Dip
I love this dip. I usually just cook the chicken shred it and mix all the ingredients in the croc pot and just stir occasionally. I also serve this with tortilla chips... Yum!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
I tried this for the first time this week. I loved it! It was a huge hit. I have shared this recipe with anyone who will listen! I added swiss cheese to mine but you can personalize yours adding onions, green peppers! I can't wait to make it again. I paired it with ranch wedges!
