Garlic Ranch Slow Cooker Potatoes (PLUS Spicy Taco Potatoes)…MIND BLOWN! Best and easiest side dish EVER!
Well I’m not going to lie to you…today has been a day of non-stop reality tv. Working from home has its perks, and one of them is having a full DVR crammed with every reality show known to man…#guiltypleasure. Pat will tell you, there’s pretty much zero reality shows I won’t at least give a shot. Addiction is tough. So today was a day of sitting on the couch, editing photos, and watching my gals (aka, the Real Housewives). Do you think Real Housewives of STL would come looking for me soon?? Life goals.
So since I was distracted all dang day catching up before Pat got home (he doesn’t love reality tv…imagine that!), I only had time for the EASIEST OF RECIPES. I don’t have time for complicated stuff you guys…my DVR is calling!
I am SO excited about these Garlic Ranch Slow Cooker Potatoes…They are SUPER simple, super yum…and perfect for busy ladies like us (I normally am a little busy…just not today…). Packed with flavor and also pretty darn healthy. I’m patting myself on the back if you can’t tell!
I have a really nifty slow cooker that has two sides…perfect for making double the gameday dips or wings…OR perfect for making two flavors of Slow Cooker Potatoes! I made the Garlic Ranch on one side, and SPICY TACO on the other side!! I’ve written out the recipe for the Garlic Ranch Slow Cooker Potatoes below, and you can hop over to Real Housemoms to see the recipe for the Spicy Taco! They’re both very easy recipes and both awesome!
