I love using my slow cooker for dinner. Honestly, I use it at least once to twice a week, especially during the school year. Makes it easy to just throw everything in and then return a few hours later to have our dinner ready. I also loving using my slow cooker when I have to feed a crowd. My absolute favorite slow cooker meal and most requested by friends and family is my Authentic Tortilla Soup.

What is the difference between a slow cooker and a crockpot?
Essentially there is not a difference between a rock-Pots and slow cooker. They both use moist heat to cook food over a long period of time. They are used to cook the same types of foods and have the same results. Each contains a pot, glass lid, and heating element. I think it is really it is a geographical thing on where you grew up whether you call it a slow cooker or crockpot.
Can you put aluminum foil in a crockpot?
By lining the inside of your slow cooker with aluminum foil it will not only make it easier to clean but it has also been claimed that it cooks the food more evenly. Another way to use foil in the slow cooker is by wrapping the food, like potatoes in foil. *Note* I have never used either of these methods and have no idea if they work.
A very common question: Do you have to put water in a slow cooker?
You only “need” to add water if it will help cook your ingredients, like meat or vegetables or if recommended by the recipe you are following. Typically some sort of liquid is used in most recipes, doesn’t have to be water but broths, soups, and sauces are other commonly used ingredients.
What is the best size slow cooker to buy?
Slow cookers come in a variety of sizes, from 2-quart, commonly used for small party dips to 8 1/2-quart. If you are planning to feed a family of three to five, you will probably want a four- to six-quart model, I typically use my 6-quart model of which I have 4.
