Easy, Shredded Taco Beef in the Slow Cooker

Chicken tacos are a staple in my house. It’s an easy go-to when I don’t know what else to make. One week when I told my husband I was going to make them – again – he asked me, “Why don’t you ever make beef tacos?” After that, it became my mission to figure out a great, equally-easy beef taco recipe. This is the winner.

This is the best kind of slow cooker recipe – you just dump and go. Even better, it only takes three ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:   [Read more…]

3 Ingredient Main Dish Recipes – aka Super Simple Suppers

13 main dish recipes with 3 ingredients

 

I love keeping things simple.  Especially, when it comes to dinner prep.  One way to streamline things, is to use few ingredients.  It’s not always possible, but there are many main dish recipes that can be made with just 3 ingredients.  (I’ll be sharing 4 and 5 ingredient recipes soon too.)

For these, I didn’t count salt and pepper as ingredients.  That was too nit-picky.  I also counted the rice in the first recipe as a side, not an ingredient for the dish.  Call me a cheater if you want.

Magically Delicious Cereal Treats

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I decided to make a themed treat for my kids.  I thought I was being very original in using Lucky Charms cereal (because what says St.Patrick’s Day more than a leprechaun and green clovers, right?!)  Turns out, this has been done many times before. Oh well, I thought I was being creative!

I made these just like traditional rice cereal treats, except I browned my butter.  I’ve discovered that brown butter is truly amazing stuff.   [Read more…]

Teriyaki BBQ Chicken Legs in the Slow Cooker

3 ingredients and a slow cooker.  This couldn’t be simpler to throw together.

And it’s really good too!  I’m not sure why I thought to mix Teriyaki  and BBQ sauces, but the combination makes a flavorful sauce that was a hit with the kids.

Pesto and Crushed Tomato Shells – 3 Ingredients, 15 Minutes

So I just read the title and it is a bit misleading.  This recipe contains no shell of tomato, crushed or otherwise.

It does have pesto, crushed tomatoes and pasta shells.  And that’s it, except the mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top.  Because you know how I can’t resist cheese.

15 minutes, start to finish and that includes time to boil the water.  Throw a salad at it and call it dinner, and a good one too.
