We’ve teamed up with Scarlett Bendixen of “Made it. Ate it. Loved it.” to bring you an awesome recipe that is easy to whip up at home. Scarlett is a busy mother of 4, cookbook author, party planner, and long time member of the Tortilla Fam. She focuses on family, creating recipes that are quick, delicious, and adaptable for everybody - age notwithstanding. Scarlett cites the slow cooker as her “saving grace” and the answer to a hectic schedule. It lets her prioritize the evening meal and get everything else finished too! 

We’re big slow cooker fans too. With a little planning, a slow cooker can dramatically cut the time you have to spend in the kitchen, while still imparting that flavor that only time and patience can give a meal. So, stick your ingredients in, walk away, and let the magic happen!
