This Mother’s Day give your mom something that she really wants…not to have to make dinner (and then clean up). Even if you’re a kid (or kitchen-clueless husband) you can make these recipes. They are super easy! They have very few ingredients and all use the slow cooker (a great appliance for the non-cook). But just because they are easy doesn’t mean they won’t taste good! These slow cooker recipes for kids are perfect for giving your mom a night off.
This recipe via 365 Days of Slow Cooking has three ingredients: green salsa, chicken, and cream of chicken soup. Pile them into the slow cooker and then serve with some rice or noodles, and bada bing bada boom—you have dinner.
This I Heart Naptime recipe is super easy and can be made on the stove or in the slow cooker. It can be made in minutes and enjoyed with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheddar on top. Who can resist a good bowl of comforting chili?
This simple recipe from Frugal Foodie Mama may just make tacos even easier than they already are! Because the slow cooker doesn’t required a flame or stove, this is a great recipe for a kid to make.
This no-fuss recipe from Call me PC just calls for roast, cream of mushroom soup, and an envelope of onion soup mix. If you’d like you can add in some vegetables like potatoes and carrots too. The roast will be perfectly flavored and fork tender.
These meatballs from Family Fresh Meals can be served as an appetizer or the main dish! Made with frozen meatballs and a handful of other ingredients, this dish is made by dumping everything into a slow cooker and cooking for four hours. Don’t these look great?!
And a bonus recipe: Don’t forget dessert! You know how much Mom loves dessert. You can make this Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler from 365 Days of Slow Cooking in your slow cooker and serve with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Mom’s going to love it!
Happy Mother’s Day!
