chuckle Special for Shawn!

Shawn, you asked for low-fat crockpot ideas and this should fit the bill. Using extra lean ground beef or turkey would make it even lower-fat. (Personally I don't care for ground turkey but lots of folks do like it).

Jayne who is watching for more low-fat ideas!

Slow Cooked Eight-Layer Casserole

1/2 lb lean ground beef
2 tbs imitation bacon bits
1 small onion; chopped
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2/3 cup long-grain rice
1 15 oz can whole-kernel corn; drained
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper

Crumble ground beef evenly over bottom of a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with bacon bits, then onion. In a medium bowl, combine tomato sauce, water, chili power, salt, and black pepper; pour half over beef and onion layers. Sprinkle rice evenly over top, then corn. Top with remaining tomato sauce mixture, then bell pepper. Cover and cook on LOW about 5 hours or until rice is tender. Yield: 4 servings.

Crock Pot

We love the crockpot or slow cooker. We have two large ones for our family dinners on Tuesday evenings. They come in quite handy.
We like to make lots of recipes, one is cooking Corn Beef in it.
Just fill with water and put in corn beef and cook all day, very tender, moist and delicious! We serve carrots, potatotes and slaw with it.
Have a great Day!
