Crockpot Taco Tator Tot Bake
Fun to say. Lazy to make. Delicious to eat… from listener, Roxie!
1 pound ground beef or turkey (I used turkey)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 32 oz bag frozen tator tots
1 can cheddar cheese soup (or nacho cheese for a little more spice)
2 cups cheese (I used co-jack, but whatever you got)
Brown and drain meat, add taco seasoning. Mix in with all ingredients in a large bowl, holding back one cup of cheese. Pour all into a greased crockpot, sprinkle cheese on top and cook on low for 4-5 hours. It is awesome and so lazy! I also added a can of Mexicorn to it, and topped it with a little sour cream or salsa.
This takes one pot, a stove-top, and a hungry belly. Click here for the recipe!

Lanette’s Lazy Pork Chops
I got help with this one from Magic 98 friend, Vicky, who says she has also used boneless chicken breasts for this lazy version of delicious pork chops! You’ll need pork chops (or your choice of meat), 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix. In Crockpot, layer pork chops, add the cream of chicken soup, then sprinkle dry ranch all over. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours. The pork chops come out very tender, and you’ll get a good gravy for mashed potatoes!

Lanette’s Lazy Pulled Pork
2 pound pork shoulder, or butt tenderloin can be used for a leaner option
12 ounce can of root beer
18 ounce bottle of barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns
Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the can of root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork (or even lazier… use a hand mixer. Sounds crazy but my four-year-old does it. It’s life-changing). After pork has cooked, drain and discard the root beer. Shred the pork and place it back in the slow cooker. Pour the barbecue sauce over the pork and stir to combine. Serve immediately or keep warm in slow cooker until ready to serve. Serve on hamburger buns or dig in with a fork and skip the carbs.
