Ah, the magic of set it and forget it. Slow cookers are wonderful things, allowing you to cook a meal without having to actually stand by the stove or be in your kitchen (or be at home at all). Slow cookers are especially useful when the weather gets chilly and you crave stews, soups, and hearty dishes to warm you up. Here are a few of our favorite recipes, including dessert!
This hot and hearty soup makes for a cozy weeknight supper, it's a mix of sausage, kale, and chickpeas. Use this recipe as a guide and switch up the greens and the sausage to get a different soup every time. But always serve it with crusty bread.
Mix up that same old chicken dinner routine and whip up these slow cooker chicken chilaquiles. Throw the chicken in before you go to work and prep the dish when you get home: tortillas simmered in salsa roja topped with tender shredded chicken and cheese. You might even have time to make dessert.
It's true: you can make flan in a slow cooker! Just pour your batter into individual ramekins, add about a half inch of water to your slow cooker, stack your flans, then clamp the lid on and walk away. In about two hours (set on high, flans checked halfway through), you'll have delightful luxurious min flans waiting for you.
