10 Super-Simple Latin Slow-Cooker Recipes

When I first got married I bought myself a slow-cooker. It’s probably one of the best kitchen appliances I have ever purchased and even more so now that I have a baby. I barely have time for myself, yet alone to make a well thought out dish. That’s where my slow-cooker comes in. I basically throw all my ingredients in the morning and voila, I have a delicious dinner in the evening.

Here are some super-simple Latin slow cooker recipes that are sure to be a hit at your house.
