Recipe: Crock Pot Ranch Porkchops

I found this recipe on Pinterest, which lead me here. Probably one of the easiest recipes EVER! They turned out so good and had a lot of flavor! thank you Renee for posting this :)

I used 2 packs of porkchops so there would be leftovers, a pack of Ranch dressing (not dip) mix, 2 cans of cream of chicken and one can of water.

Here’s everything I used.. and by everything, I mean 3 ingredients.. well, 4 if you count the water.

Put everything in the crockpot – i put the porkchops in then the ranch and then both cans of cream of chicken and one can of water… then stirred it all together. Cooked it on low for 6 hours. I think next time I’ll use less water and maybe not cook it so long. The porkchops pretty much fell apart, which is okay with me but not what I was expecting.

I made mashed potatoes as the side and used the gravy from the crockpot – SO GOOD!

A very very easy crock pot recipe with not many ingredients! Let me know if you’ve had this and what you thought of it.

Recipe: CrockPot Taco Soup

Below is the recipe for CrockPot Taco Soup. I got this recipe from a co-worker, I’ve made this before and it’s amazing! This is probably one of the easiest recipes to make in the CrockPot and, yes it’s almost summer, but it’s just that good! If you try it, please comment below and let me know what you think of it and if you changed anything in the recipe :)
Ingredients:
2 cans of chili beans
2 cans of pinto beans
2 cans of corn
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 can of Rotel
2 packets of taco seasoning
1 packet of ranch dressing mix (I use the Hidden Valley one)
2 lb browned hamburger meat (or turkey)
Directions:
1. Brown meat, if you’re going to use it
2. Drain the fat from the meat and put meat in CrockPot
3. Empty all 3 seasoning packets on top of meat
4. Drain and rinse the beans and add to CrockPot
5. Add the rest of the ingredients – corn, diced tomatoes, Rotel
6. StirCover and cook on LOW for 8-10 hour or on high for 4-5 hours. Obviously, the longer you cook it, the better. I started mine at 7:20AM and we had dinner at 7:30PM – 12 hours of cooking on low heat, longer than the recipe said but we invited my dad over for dinner so we had to wait until he got off work. It was perfect! Before serving, stir well and add toppings (optional) – shredded cheese & sour cream. I also made corn bread muffins to go with it. The whole thing made about 8 servings, so there’s plenty left over for lunch tomorrow :)

ENJOY!
