Busy Schedules – Use your slow cooker recipes for fast fixes. After a few minutes prep in the morning, you can come home to a home cooked meal. I use my slow cooker or crock pot
recipes at least once a week during the school year to make meal time pleasurable and stress-free for my family and myself.
Slow Cooker Recipes that are grab and go.
These are some of the most used recipes in my family. With teenagers I go to these slow cooker recipes when my family has a busy night of everyone going their own way. The favorite of these in my house is Italian Pork Sandwiches but Queso Dip is a close second.

This slow cooker recipe can be started in the afternoon and makes a great quick supper or a dish to take with you to your next pot luck get together. Start your slow cooker on high. This temp will be high enough to grow the defrosted pre-seasoned sausage. (If you were unable to find this product you can achieve similar results with a tube of sausage or hamburger and a package of taco seasoning.) Brown the meat in the crock pot. While it is browning you can cube your cheese. When the meat is browned, and drained if necessary, turn the slow cooker to low and add the cheese and a can of tomatoes and chilies (drained). Stir frequently until melted and then serve with tortilla or corn chips.
