WELCOME

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.

HOT 3-BEAN SALAD

4 slices bacon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup mild taco sauce
1 can (16-oz) chili beans
1 can (16-oz) grean beans, drained
1 can (16-oz) garganzo beans, drained

Fry the bacon until crisp and remove from skillet.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of the drippings in the skillet.  Stir in the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and taco sauce.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbling and thick.

Place the 3 types of beans in the crockpot or slow cooker; add the crumbled bacon.  Pour the thickened sauce overall.  Stir mixture thoroughly .  Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 2 hours.
