Slow Cooker Taco Soup
Rating: Unrated
Gina's rating

My family LOVED this.. I subbed 3 cans of Rotel in leu of 2 cans tomato and 1 of chili pepper and black beans for chili beans. It was spicy! I did add Ranch powder and brown sugar like some others posted. It filled my crock pot to the brim! **sidenote, if you leave it in the crockpot all night, it burns to the bottom and then you can't taste the leftovers :(

This was AWESOME.. I cooked it at 400 for 30min then 350 for 30min.. I wrapped the breasts with bacon and covered it in honey mustard and mozzarella then baked.. Everyone loved it.. from grandpa to grandson, it was a hit :)

It was less than OK until you put seasonings in it. I have since turned it into a family favorite. :) With Italian seasoning, fresh garlic, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, ground pepper and beef stock in the crock pot.. Even better as leftovers.. :)

Actually the only thing I took from this recipe was adding garlic to my onion while grilling them.. I just broiled the Brats and topped w/ the onion/garlic mix.. Delicious!! I've grilled onions ALL MY LIFE and now its forever changed :)

Black Beans and Pork Chops
Rating: Unrated
Gina's rating

I've made this a few times using fresh pico de gallo instead of salsa since it has the cilantro in it already. I also add frozen corn. It's a complete meal and turns out great! This last time I didn't have the Pico so I substituted a can of Rotel and seasoned with Adobo still adding the corn. I served with Adobo seasoned Angel Hair noodles. Came out very good too. Every time I've made this, the pork chops come out SO tender. You know they like it when the table goes silent while everyone's eating.

One Pot Pinto Beans

This came out great. A HUUGE hit with the family. Things I've learned.. Weigh the bag before you assume its 2 lbs.. I must have ended up with 10 lbs of cooked beans. Soak the beans overnight, they won't absorb as much water during cooking.. For my family this was perfect for the beef/bean burritos we made but would never eat it as a main or side dish. For us, it's to make with burritos. Or as a dip but a lot of trouble for some bean dip.

The Most Easy and Delish Meatloaf EVER!

The moistest tastiest EASIEST meatloaf EVER. I followed the recipe as written except I drained about half the water from the can of Rotel and used garlic salt instead of powder. I also added the ketchup right in the begining. No need to pull it out towards the end to add ketchup. My little family of 3 ate the whole thing and wanted more!

Savory Chicken Breasts
Rating: Unrated

My family LOVES this meal. I've made it many times now. I used 1 cream of Mush and 1 chicken. I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 of milk. I seasoned that mixture with garlic salt, minced onion and pepper. Poured that over the Muenster covered seasoned chicken breasts. This time I used Pepperidge Farm Onion/Sage bread cubes. Using Stove Top makes it *ridiculously* TOO salty. If you have Swiss cheese, use it but the Muenster was ok.

I've never made bread pudding before but NOW I'm making it every week! The family LOVED this. I used dried bread strips I bought from Jewel. This made it very easy to just tear off little pieces while it's cooling, just so you know. ;)

Chicken Noodle Casserole

The whole family LOVED it. Even the VERY picky grandson. I basically followed the recipe as written using Rotini noodles, garlic salt and fresh ground pepper to taste and since I had a lot of leftover chicken I used that instead of poaching. I also added just a sprinkle of garlic and onion powder. Wow this was SO good. Leftovers? As if!

This was SSOO good. I used Whipping Cream and 70%+ cocoa content chocolate bar. When making again, I'll triple the recipe.
