help! Crockpots/Slowcookers

sskwire | Oct 8, 2002 12:47 PM

Recent changes in my and my husband's job schedules mean that neither one of us is home any more from about 7 in the morning until 7 at night. I have a host of good and fast recipes, but bought a slow cooker with the notion that it would be lovely to come home at night and smell wonderful dinner smells, and dish up a hot, finished meal with almost no effort and absolutely no wait at the end of a long day. (And I got a larger slow cooker, in hopes of being clever and freezing the leftovers.)

So far so good. I've made one or two things we've liked, but have mostly found the available recipes to be either stomach-turning (Velveeta and cream of mushroom soup type things) or just plain dull.

Any suggestions from the Chowhounds? Extra points for spicy stuff, complex flavor combinations, and/or the use of chipotles in adobo....

Thanks in advance!

Sarah
