Crock Pot Dump Meals Cookbook Review
I love using my slow cooker(s) because it really is convenient to “dump” all of the ingredients in, set it and forget it. That’s why I was interested to check out the Crock Pot Dump Meals Cookbook. I know a lot of you are parents on-the-go that don’t always have time to cook, and that this cookbook might be of interest to you!
I tried out three recipes from this cookbook. The first was the Ranch Chicken and Stuffing.
This recipe calls for a 1 oz. package of Ranch Seasoning Mix. I thought that was too much and would be too salty, so I sprinkled only half of the package onto the chicken before adding the rest of the ingredients. This recipe was okay. I found it to be a bit bland and mushy. I’ve only had one serving, but Grant is enjoying the left-overs. This might be improved by cooking the vegetables separately.
The next recipe that I tried was the Easy Chocolate Pudding Cake. Here is how it looked in the slow cooker.
This is a more appetizing view.
This comes out okay also. Basically the cake cooks on top of a layer of pudding. The cake is very moist and yummy. I’m not sure the pudding is even necessary, but perhaps it contributes to the moisture in the cake.
Finally, I tried the Family Tortilla Bowl. This was our favorite. We had it as an appetizer during the Patriots play-off game. This called for foil handles in the slow cooker to lift it out after cooking. This layered tortilla bowl is made with layers of – flour tortillas, shredded cheddar, ground beef, black beans and taco sauce.
This is how it looked fresh out of the slow cooker.
This is how it looked with all the fixings.
This was a perfect game day appetizer. It was really good and I would make it again!
Some other recipes that I would try are the Root Beer BBQ Pulled Pork and the Tender Pot Roast.
The main attractions of this cookbook for me are the ” five ingredients or less” and the ability to dump all of the ingredients and forget about it. One thing to keep in mind with this cookbook is that you will find some of the recipes call for canned or packaged soups and frozen veggies, jarred pasta sauces – basically convenience foods. You just have to expect that these items may contain extra sodium, sugar and preservatives. That’s the trade-off.
