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.

I just got this recipe in my emails from TOH. Two things I love are tacos and meatloaf so just thinking about this combination has my mouth watering.  To be fair, I just got this today so I haven't tried it yet. But have you ever gotten a bad recipe from Taste of Home?

  • 1 cup salsa
  •  2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  •  1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  •  2 tablespoons Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • Cut four 20-in. x 3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 3-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a round loaf. Place meat loaf in the center of the strips. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°.
  • Combine the ketchup, brown sugar and hot sauce; pour over meat loaf during the last hour of cooking. Let stand for 10 minutes. Using foil strips as handles, remove the meat loaf to a platter. Yield: 8 servings.
