Crockpot Taco Dip......Soooooo Simple!

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 lb ground chuck

1 (1 ¼ ounce) package taco seasoning mix (I use Old El paso)

1 (10 ounce) jar medium salsa (I use Chi-Chi's brand)

1 lb Velveeta cheese , cubed

1 tablespoon sour cream

¼ cup red onion , chopped

1 garlic clove , minced


1In skillet, brown ground chuck in oil and chop finely with a spatula. Add chopped onion and garlic and saute' just long enough to sweat but not brown. Drain.2Put meat mixture in crock pot and add all other ingredients. Stir and cover. Heat on "low" for 2-3 hours, stirring after the first hour.3Garnish with finely chopped green onion stems, if desired.

Don't forget to mix up some margaritas to drink with this!

wow - if my sister hadn't mentioned T-day on her FB this morning, I would have forgotten all about this! That's my memory. Hope this isn't too late, Laurie. It's AWESOME.

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 C sugar

1 C pumpkin

1/2 C oil

1/4 C water

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 2/3 C flour

3/4 tsp. salt

Combine eggs and sugar. Mix well with electric beater. Add pumpkin, oil and water. Blend thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients together. Add to first mixture. Mix thoroughly. Pour into soup cans (this is how old this recipe is! I use loaf pans, duh) filling about half full. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 1 hour.

Also: I typically toss in about 1 or 2 extra tablespoons of pumpkin just to give it that extra heaviness and moistness. This is the BEST pumpkin bread. Ever.

So glad I posted this here. All my recipes are packed up in boxes still and this saves me a trip through the storage shed. :grin:
