The weather is getting cooler and you know what that means? Time to break out the Crock Pot! To help you get off to a warm and savory start, my friends at Red Gold are hosting the Red Gold 2-A-Day Crock Pot Giveaway! Everyday, between September 17th and October 8th, Red Gold will be giving away two Red Gold Crock Pots on their Facebook page!
Now you know that I love Crock Pot recipes. So I’m sharing one of my favorite Red Gold slow cooker recipes–Slow Cooker Spicy Macaroni and Cheese–and giving away a Red Gold Tomatoes apron to one lucky reader! (Scroll down to the bottom to enter).
You’re going to love this recipe. You don’t even have to cook the pasta before putting it into the slow cooker–just throw in your ingredients and forget it. The Red Gold Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies add the perfect amount of heat. Want to turn it into a full meal? Just add 1 pound of browned and drained ground beef! Here’s what you need:
2 c. pasta of your choice, uncooked
3 Tbsp. butter
8 oz. American processed cheese, cubed
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 c. milk
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (14.5 oz.) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies, drained
1. Spray the bottom of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place the uncooked pasta in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Add the remaining ingredients, except Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies. Stir well until combined and cook on low for 4 hours.
3. Just before serving, add Red Gold Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies. Stir to combine.
That’s it! Your spicy macaroni and cheese is done!
