I am constantly looking for slow cooker recipes that are easy and healthy. Sometimes when you find a slow cooker recipe, it will have 20 ingredients or considerable prep time. I want to throw ingredients in and enjoy the meal later in the day…no hassle. Here is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes:
