Meatball Stew


18-20 meatballs, or 12 oz bag

3 potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 cups of carrots, cleaned and sliced

1 medium onion, finely chopped

3 celery stalks, cleaned and chopped

1 can of tomato soup

1 can of beef gravy

1 cup of water

1 envelope of onion soup mix

2 packets of Beef Herbox

~ Place all in the Crock Pot and cook on low 5-6 hours.

*I used a 24 ounce bag of meatballs, and 2 envelopes of powder beef gravy, so I also used 4 cups of water instead of one to create more liquid.


Crockpot Chicken Tacos


3 large chicken breasts
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 packet of dry ranch

Cook on low 6 hours (mine was all day while away). When cooked, shread chicken. It will soak up the broth as you shread.
Serve as you would your favorite taco way. On crumbled tortilla, in soft or hard shells, or in a wrap. Top with salsa, cheese, ranch, or whatever you like!
