Tasty Tuesday....A Few More Crock-Pot Recipes

Happy Tuesday Ladies! 
So I am officially saying that every Tuesday will be "Tasty Tuesday" here at Kimm's Korner!  I know that I always love when women share recipes, so if you have a favorite recipe about the topic I am talking about, please by all means share it with us! 
I really love the crock-pot for so many reasons, and I use it pretty much year round, not just in the winter months.  With a very busy life, I have found the crock-pot to be a life saver!  I can throw everything in there in the mornings, and then BAM at dinner time everything is all ready to eat!  I especially love it during our "sport" seasons, so great for the nights that we are all eating at different times!  Two weeks ago I shared a few of our favorite recipes to make in the crock-pot, and today I am sharing a few more with you guys!
Creamy Ranch Potatoes
2 pounds small red potatoes, quartered
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 envelope buttermilk ranch dry salad dressing mix
1 10 3/4 ounce can cream of potato soup
1.  Place potatoes in slow cooker.  In a small bowl combine cream cheese and salad dressing mix.  Stir in soup, add to potatoes.
2.  Cover, cook on low for 7-9 hours or on high for 3.5-4.5 hours.  Stir to blend before serving
Makes 6 servings
This is a super yummy side dish...we love it

Nacho Chicken & Rice Wraps
2 cans Campbell's cheddar cheese soup
1 cup water
2 cups pace chunky salsa or picante sauce
1 1/4 cups uncooked regular long grain white rice
2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, cubed
10 flour tortillas (10 inch in diameter)
1.  Mis soup, water, salsa, rice and chicken in the slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours or high 4-5 hours or until done.
2.  Spoon about 1 cup rice mixture down center of each tortilla.  Fold tortilla around filling.
This is easy and very good!

Big Al's Hot & Sweet Sausage Sandwich
4-5 pounds Italian sausage (we use sweet)
1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 large onion sliced (Vidalia preferred)
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and sliced
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and sliced
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
Italian rolls
Provolone cheese (optional)
1.  Combine sausage, spaghetti sauce, onion, bell peppers and sugar in slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or high 4-6 hours.
2.  Place sausages on rolls.  Top with vegetable mixture and add cheese if desired!
We LOVE sausage and pepper sandwiches, and I love that I can avoid all the mess of cooking the sausage on the stove top!  We had these for the super bowl and we ate them all up!

Deluxe Potato Casserole
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 container (8ounces) sour cream
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons melted butter, divided
1 teaspoon salt
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 cups (8ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 - 2 cups stuffing mix
1.  Combine soup, sour cream, onion, 1/4 cup butter and salt in small bowl.
2.  Combine potatoes and cheese in slow cooker.  Pour soup mixture over potato mixture; mix well.  Sprinkle stuffing mix over potato mixture; drizzle with remaining butter.
3.  Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours or high 5-6 hours or until potatoes are tender.
We love a potato casserole as a side dish, and this is yummy!
