  • 3 pounds red potatoes washed and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ounce ranch seasoning 1 packet
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Spicy Taco Slow Cooker Potatoes

  • 3 pounds red potatoes quartered
  • 1 ounce taco seasoning click for homemade recipe!
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Spray a large slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  • Place all the ingredients in a large slow cooker. Stir to combine slightly. While the potatoes are cold they won't coat completely and that's totally fine.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until the potatoes are fork tender. (NOTE: Check the potatoes after 1 hour and stir to make sure all the potatoes are coated fully. Check again after 2.5 hours and make sure they aren't done. Depending on the size of the potatoes, they could cook a bit quicker)
  • Serve hot, enjoy!
