MARILYN'S CROCK POT RECIPES

As Martha and Jean are looking for crock pot recipes, I thought I would put on a couple that I use.
Yes, I do have three different crock pots and sometimes use two at the same time making different things.

Hello Mimi,
You are most welcome. I use the chili recipe a lot. Like to make extra so I freeze some up to eat later.

You've made me want to use my crock pot. Your recipes look great. I don't really have any recipes to add but I'd love to see more recipes from others.
