A Few Tips

For faster cleanup, I use crock pot liners. They have saved me a lot of time since discovering these little blessings. Spraying the crock can only insure you so much when it comes to keeping things from baking on and I would rather relax with my husband after dinner than spend forever trying to scrub the crock pot.

You can use a packet of Ranch Dressing Mix instead of measuring it out from bulk for this recipe. It has the right measurements. If you would like my recipe for Ranch Dressing Mix, you can find it here.

Just about anything made in a crock pot can also be prepared ahead of time to make into freezer meals. I am a major fan of these dump-and-go meals. You can put everything you would put in the crock pot into a gallon zip-lock baggie. The night before you want to cook it, pull it out of the freezer and thaw overnight in the fridge. The next morning, line the crock pot, dump the contents in and go on your merry way!
