I do the chicken taco thing too, but no sour cream. It's great. I also just throw a whole chicken in the slow cooker that has been seasoned with cajun seasoning and pour a little beer in the cavity of the bird, let it cook all day on low. Makes a great roast chicken.

I'd never thought of BBQ ribs in a slow cooker until we tried this. It works easier with boneless ribs.
1) Place ribs into cooker
2) Pour in your favorite sauce
3) Cook on high for an hour or so
4) Reduce to low & cook until done.
Simple but good!

Make small cuts in roast, and insert garlic slices in cuts. Place roast in the slow cooker, and pour the entire contents of the jar of pepperoncini, including liquid, over meat.

I serve this on hoagie rolls and put cheese on top and pop under the broiler til cheese is bubbly.
