I figured out an easy way to warm up after the snow. I make crockpot hot chocolate. There are two things I love during the winter they are Starbucks hot chocolate and my slow cooker I decided to combine the two. This is a recipe for “Starbucks like” hot cocoa or Starbucks Hot Chocolate. It is sweet and savory. It is the perfect answer to a long day outside and something my kids have grown to request after a play outside in the cold.

Do you serve tacos for Taco Tuesday? Well, whether it’s for Tuesday or for the other days of the week, I have this awesome tacos recipe that you should definitely try! This Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken Tacos Recipe is my family’s favorite. My kids kept requesting for this recipe because it’s so good just to enjoy it once a week.
It is that time of year when you need a meal and you need it fast. So, warm, comfort food is on the menu. Chili can be easily made in your slow cooker which we listed below and you can also make a Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker and then served three different ways. Make a big pot of chili and warm up with this homey soup after being out in the snow. Then, use the leftovers to make nachos and chili dogs for the big game. You can even make Chili cheese dog casserole recipe.
Once you’ve eaten the chili as a soup, take the lid off the slow cooker and leave it on “low”. The chili will cook down and thicken as the liquid evaporates. Use the thick chili as a topping for hot dogs and to make your own nachos. Chili dog toppings to have on hand are spicy mustard, chopped onions, warm sauerkraut, sweet pickle relish, coleslaw, and of course, ketchup.
Making your own nachos is easy; just think layers. On the serving platter, spread tortilla chips evenly. Next, goes your thick, warm chili. Then, shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, asiago, a mix…your choice). Top the cheese with finely, shredded iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olives, jalapeno slices, dollops of sour cream, and freshly chopped cilantro. This will make a beautiful presentation and guests will gobble it up!
The recipe is the same for both chili recipes, however, the cooking instructions and times will differ.
