What’s In Your CrockPot?

It's the first Saturday of the month, which means it's time for "What's In Your CrockPot?"! Share your favorite CrockPot recipes here and find tons of recipes to add to your collection.

Here is a CrockPot recipe my family has dubbed a winner:

Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion minced
1 can pinto beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
2 cups water

Brown ground beef with minced onion. Drain. Toss everything together into the CrockPot. Turn to low and forget about it for 2-3 hrs. Serve with cornbread or chips and shredded cheese. Top with sour cream. Enjoy?

Now, it's your turn! What is a CrockPot favorite you would like to share?

  1. Wow, I’m first, I can’t believe it! Looks like you and I were on the same page of the cookbook :-)
    I’ve seen Ranch dressing mix a couple times now in Taco Soup, I need to try that next time.
    Thanks for hosting!
    Have a wonderful Easter!

  2. I posted TWO of my favorites: Breakfast casserole Chicken Enchiladas. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

  3. Happy to participate! Have a great Saturday! The soup sounds very, very fun and tasty!

  4. I haven’t posted this recipe for bbq pork on my blog, but it will be on my menu next week. Take a nice sized pork loin, rinse and put into your crockpot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes (if you like a little spice). Let cook all day or overnight. Take a knife and fork and shred the meat. You can then pour your favorite bbq sauce over all. I also use a little brown sugar as well. Delicious on a bun with sides of coleslaw and baked beans. I make a LARGE batch of this and freeze half for another day.

  5. I love my crockpot (especially now that I own one that isn’t in danger of catching fire!). I really wish I used it more often…

  6. This recipe looks yummy! We will have to try it:) I will try to post a recipe if WB lets me take a break cutting the tile!

  7. I like the items that you are posting but what happened to your wit and fun posts? I miss them! :-)

  8. What’s in my crockpot? Beans. Always. Nothing Else. But as boring as that sounds, if anyone is interested, it’s the greatest way to make them and super cheap. I put them in the pot and cover with water the night before and then in the morning they are perfectly cooked so I can salt them and refry them whenever for our daily burritos :)

    • Smockity Frocks says:

      @Jaynee, Do you soak the beans first? Or just start them in the CrockPot?

      • @Smockity Frocks, Nope, no soaking here. I’ve never seen anyone here soak their beans. Just sort, rinse them, and then put in fresh water and cook.
        When they are cooked, heat up some pig lard in a skillet until melted, spoon in the beans with some of the liquid, add salt, and mash them. Repeat 3x a day and you can easily feed 12 growing children quite efficiently :)

  9. I love this carnival of yours. We enjoy Taco Soup as well. My recipe is pretty similar. Did you know you can freeze it? Leave out the sour cream of course. We grate up a block of cheddar cheese or colby jack and freeze it in freezer bags. Then freeze the Taco Soup in freezer bags or containers (usually containers). Then you’ve pretty much got your meal in the freezer. mmm. Sounds like a good idea. I think I’ll add that to this week’s menu.
