I'm looking for easy, inexpensive crock pot recipes. My hubby is a picky eater. He won't eat pork or any kind of seafood. If something calls for milk he asks I substitute water but soemtimes I don't and tell him I did lol! Any suggestions for me?
ETA: We're not big veggie eaters. So much beyond potatoes, carrots, green beans, I substitute chopped tomatoes for pureed, etc.

CREAMY CHICKEN & TORTILLAS
I dont remember where I originaly got this recipe, but I thought it sounded great!
I see few responses jhere, and I'm sorry because I remember searching out new and different crockpot recipes/cookbooks myself because they all seemed to be basically the same thing.
For me, finding/pasting etc a recipe to here is complicated! But if you look online, search for crock-pot recipes, you will find gazillions of websites and other places with enough recipes for a year or 10...:)
any reference to 'points' refers to weight watchers which is probably where I got this recipe! I've done this one twice and it was good. some add lemon and other seasonings to the chicken.
I haven't tried this one yet but the person who posted it on WW really liked it so it's on my list to try one of these days..hmm maybe this weekend since I have some drumsticks I need to thaw and use..
Title: Sticky Crockpot Chicken Drumsticks
I like taco soup but it may be too spicy for your kids though it can be 'toned' down some
3-4 FROZEN chicken breasts
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 envelope mix
1 medium onion, diced
1 can diced tomatoes (rotel)
1 can black beans
1 can cannelli (or any white) beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can vegetarian - I didn't have these so left them out
1 can kernel corn
Put everything in crockpot in order listed.
Do NOT rinse or drain beans.
DO NOT STIR.
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Take chicken out and shred with two forks.
Put chicken back in, stir, and eat.
I like doing a spicy beef version using 1- 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef cooked with onion then dump in crockpot with 2 large cans tomatoes, can rotel(I vary the tomatoes between rotel or regular), can of pinto beans with jalapenos, can of pinto beans or kidney beans, can of corn, the taco seasoning and packet of hidden valley ranch dressing mix. for this I do cook the beef before putting in the slow cooker.
I also often cook the chicken breasts first then don't cook as long in the slowcooker
this is another that makes its rounds on the WW board..I haven't made it since I was warned it's salty and I take meds for my blood pressure and really don't like salty foods a lot
To Die for Roast
1 package of mix
1 package of brown gravy mix
1 package of mix
2-3 lb beef pot roast
1 cup of
Any type of veggies (I used carrots and potatoes today)
Mix all of the seasoning packets in the cup of broth.
Place your veggies on the bottom of a sprayed crockpot. Then place your meat on top of the veggies and then pour the broth on top.
Cook on low for 9-11 hours.
suggestions on WW board say that this is very salty but adding potatoes helps absorb some of the salt..
Bump! I'm co-opting the OP because I want to hear about more favorite slow-cooker recipes. I'm going to try to make apple butter sometime this week... My skills with the slow-cooker are hit-or-miss, so wish me luck.
I have been using my CP a lot lately- often on the weekends, I have two going at one time! I have been making a big batch of oatmeal each weekend to have for breakfast throughout the week, and it is the best oatmeal I have ever had. It has a very creamy texture compared to oatmeal cooked on the stovetop. Honestly I don't know if I will ever make it on the stove again! It's so easy: 2 cups old fashioned oats (not quick cooking), 4 3/4 cups water, pinch of salt. Cook on low 5-7 hours, or on high 3-4 hours. I stir once or twice during the cooking process to keep the edges from browning.
Meat sauce for spaghetti is another favorite at my house. Sautee an onion in oil until soft, then add some ground beef or ground turkey and brown. Drain, put in CP with a couple of jars of store-bought spaghetti sauce. Or use a couple of large cans of crushed tomatoes and add to it minced garlic and some Italian spice mix. Cook on low all day.
