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 ground turkey (read label and watch fat content)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (6-oz) tomato paste
1/2 cup chunky salsa
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
8 taco shells
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
Ground red pepper, optional

Over medium heat brown turkey and onion in a large skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Transfer brown mixture to a slow cooker or crockpot.

To the turkey in the cooker add the following: tomato paste, salsa, cilantro, and salt.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low 4 to 5 hours.

Spoon 1/4 cup of the hot turkey mixture into each of taco shells; keep warm.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in the flour and the 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  Slowly stir in the milk.  Cook the mixture over low heat until thickened.  Remove from the heat.

Combine the sour cream and red pepper, if using, in a small bowl then stir into the milk mixture.  Return to the heat and cook for about a minute, stirring constantly.  Spoon the mixture over the taco filling.

Yield: 8 tacos
