Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lbs fresh green beans, washed and broken into bite-size pieces
1 can (10 1/2-oz) cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 small can French-fried onion rings
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 can water chestnuts, sliced thin
salt to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup water

Divide the green beans into thirds and layer a third on the bottom of the crockpot or slowcooker. Cover with a third of the mushroom soup. Spread a third of the onion rings over the soup. Top with a third of the water chestnuts. Sprinkle with a little salt and a third of the pepper. Repeat the layers two more times, saving a few of the onion rings for later. Pour the water over all. Put the lid on the cooker and cook on high setting for 8 to 10 hours. About 20 minutes before serving, remove the lid and sprinkle the remaining onion rings over the top for a crunchy topping.
