Cooking with a slow cooker can be a life-saver when you’re busy with parenting duties, work, and a variety of other life responsibilities. There’s nothing like the feeling of knowing dinner is ready and waiting for you to get home. Well, maybe the smell of your meal in the slow cooker as you open your front door – that may just top it all off! Did you know that you can cook all kinds of meals in your slow cooker? I had no idea of the wide assortment of food that can easily be cooked in a slow cooker – from different meats and side dishes to even dessert! I guess that’s why January is National Slow Cooker Month! To get you going with some ideas or to add to your ever-growing collection of slow cooker recipes, I put together this list of 50+ Latin slow cooker recipes for you to try out with your family!
