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 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef, browned and drained
8 medium potatoes sliced with the skin on
1 can red kidney beans (I sometimes use chili beans)
1 can tomato soup
2 garlic cloves, minced (or garlic powder to suit your taste)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Cover the bottom of cooker with the onion; top with the well drained beef. Layer the potatoes over the beef and the beans over the potatoes.

Whisk the garlic, salt and pepper into the soup; pour over all.

Place cover on cooker and cook on low about 8 hours.
