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.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup water
1 (1.25-oz) packet taco seasoning
1 can (15-oz) tomato sauce
1 pkg (8-oz) shell macaroni, uncooked
1 can (4-oz) mild chopped green chilies
2 cups mild shredded Cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the onion; drain well.

Wipe skillet with a paper towel to absorb any leftover fat. Return meat mixture to skillet and add the water, taco seasoning, and tomato sauce; mix to combine. Simmer mixture for 20 minutes.

Pour mixture into the crock pot/slow cooker and stir in the macaroni and green chilies. Place lid on cooker and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.

During last 30 minutes of cooking time, top with the cheese.

Serves 6 to 8.
