Everyone that knows me knows that cooking is something I truly enjoy. Before having kids, I would spend hours in the kitchen creating my own version of a gourmet meal for myself and the hubby. I still love to do this but now, with a full house and very busy schedules I can’t spend hours in the kitchen every day, chopping, dicing and cooking – there just isn’t enough time in the day. But I still want to serve my family delicious and unique meals because it’s something we all look forward to and enjoy so much.
This family is not happy with the same old meals days after day, we love to try new flavors and ingredients. If we don’t, everyone gets bored and meal time just isn’t the same.
I knew right away that my Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker was the best solution for my family. I grew up in a house with a Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker on the kitchen counter that was used almost every single day. We had it forever and there was always a hot meal on the table for us to sit down to together. So, of course when I went shopping to purchase my own slow cooker it was going to be a Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker. We wouldn’t have even considered any other brand back then and I definitely wouldn’t now.
As great as it was, this ain’t my mama’s Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker. It’s new and improved you could say. There’s now automated smart cook settings , precision heat technology and multi-method cooking options. Did you ever imagine there would come a time where you could brown your meat in your Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker? Well, now you can! You can’t beat the quality and reliability of Crock-Pot® Brand products; they will be in your life for many years to come!
What I love about cooking with my Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker is that the possibilities are pretty much endless. I love coming up with unique recipes to make, combining new flavors with old favorites, and putting a special twist on classic dishes to make them my own. It’s all about the power of creating something delicious that my family will love and remember – at the risk of sounding too cheesy, I’m basically turning meals into memories, yo.
One of our favorite meals are tacos but we get bored easily and love variety, so I came up with a new recipe that scored 4 stars from most of my family (the younger one just doesn’t like quinoa, no matter how I disguise it!). Now, if you don’t know, we have 6 kids so for most of them, me and my husband to all love the same meal is something special – I have pretty picky kids, so it honestly doesn’t happen that often, so I was pretty excited when the majority of my family devoured these Spicy Quinoa Tostadas. I’m really not trying to brag, but OMG they are totally amazing and delicious! The flavors and textures compliment each other perfectly. Seriously, these are a must try; you’re going to love them.
Okay, okay I’ll stop bragging and get you the recipe!
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!
