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.

This is my version of a recipe I saw from the Crockin' Girls.

1 bag (32-oz) frozen tator tots
1 lb lean ground beef, browned, crumbled, drained
1 cup light sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
1/4 lb bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled + 2 slices for garnish, if desired
2 cups Mexican-style shredded cheese, divided
6 green onions, chopped, divided
Nonstick cooking spray

Spray slow cooker interior with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl combine the beef, sour cream, soup, crumbled bacon, 1 cup cheese and half the onions.

Cover bottom of cooker with a layer of tator tots; layer half the beef mixture over tots. Repeat layers.

Sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese overall.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 5 hours or on high 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Garnish with the remaining green onions and crumble the other 2 slices of bacon over the top, if using.
