I use my 'crack pot' all the time so I am always looking for new crock recipes! This one looks gooood! I am definitely going to visit Sandra and see what I can find. Thanks!

This sounds tasty. I just did something a little less exciting with my slow cooker this morning. I put four frozen chicken breasts in with two cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles and one can of salsa verde.

By tonight it will be used as the chicken meat in our burritos and tomorrows' leftovers for quesedillas.

yum yum!

Blessings, Joanne

Mmm... sounds good. I may have to try that sometime! Slow-cookers are great little tools, aren't they? I just "rediscovered" mine this year when our schedules changed, classes falling a bit later in the day. I always enjoy reading your ideas...
