Is there anything better than coming home from a long day to a nice, hot, home-cooked meal? If you have a crock pot, then it’s possible to throw a few things in each morning, and come home to a yummy meal. Here are my eight favorite crock-pot meals, all of them delicious, and all of them perfect for the long, cold winter!
1. Turkey Chili

This is a classic, and everybody loves it! You can add all sorts of toppings, and you can even make it as hot or as mild as you want. Here’s what you need: one pound of ground turkey or ground beef (browned), three cans of diced tomatoes, two cans of pinto beans (drained), one can of dark red kidney beans (drained), one can of condensed tomato soup (and one can of water), and one packet of McCormick’s chili seasoning. If you like, you can also add a small can of diced green chilis, or a small can of corn. You just throw everything into the crock pot, set it on low, and let it simmer all day! Top with sour cream, fresh diced tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese, onions, you name it…
