a block of velveta cheese
2 cans of rotel tomatoes(however u like them: hot, mild, original)
1 pound of hamburger meat
nacho chips

~fry the hamburger meat first
~when that gets done, put the cheese, tomatoes, and hamburger meat in a crockpot (on high) and let it sit until the cheese is melted (it is best to cut the cheese into smaller pieces so it melts faster)
~stir occastionally
~when all the cheese is melted let your guests serve themselves as they please
~serve with the nacho chips!!

(u can make bigger portions; just double or triple your ingrediants)

hope it helps
my mom I recently made this for a party. It was the only item that I have never had leftovers! I served it with Ritz Chips and Wheat Thin Chips. I have also used it as a spread for sandwiches. The first time I made it, I used "pickle" cucumbers (the small ones that are not waxed, also called salad cucumbers, four will make 2 cups grated cucumber). The next time I made it I used a greenhouse cucumber (the long ones wrapped in plastic). The "pickle" cucumbers have less water and make a better spread. The green house cucumber worked well for a dip.


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups cucumber, grated
1/2 cup carrots, grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1.Mix all ingredients together. Chill.

2.Serve as a spread on crackers or bread or as a dip with chips.
News2You Stay away from the oven and use a slow cooker!


3 bunch fresh spinach washed and dried, or cheat and get the prewashed ones at the market
1 c dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts or both.
1/4 c sunflower seeds
feta cheese
a viniagrette dressing

Mix ingredients together and add dressing before serving.

Pot roast using the slow cooker is the only way to go!
5 lb chuck roast
2 pkg lipton onion soup mix, dry
2 cans cream mushroom soup, campbells
1 whole celery bunch, diced
2 onions, diced
4 whole carrots, peeled and cut
5 potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2
1 crushed garlic cloves
5 tbsp flour
1 Reynold's slow cooker liner, optional

The slow cooker liner makes cleaning up a snap!
In the crock pot, add cream mushroom soups, 2 cans of water, the lipton dry soups, flour and mix the ingredients well.

Add the roast and the garlic. Mix around til covered with soup mix. Add the onions and veggies. Add water to barely cover the veggies (remember the water level may go up during cooking!).

If potatoes won't fit, then cook them separately (ie: roast, mashed, etc.) Cover and turn crock pot to medium.
Cook 6-8 hours and it will be so tender!

3 pkgs large jello, same flavor
2 coolwhip
fresh fruits

Make the jello as on the package but use 1/2 cup less water per package. In a non metalic bowl, add jello and Add fresh fruit like fresh strawberries, grapes, chopped apples. Let it chill for 4-6 hours. Mix up the jello and add 1/2 tub of cool whip. Add more if desired. Mix well, and its like an ambrosia.

Serve in glass cups and top with more fresh fruit.
