Crock Pot Dessert Fruit Taco Cups

Alright y’all, it’s time for a moment of honesty here, I’m totally obsessed with slow cookers!

Yes, it’s true, I am now the proud owner of SIX slow cookers!

I literally own a slow cooker from the 80’s, a slow cooker from the 90’s and now four slow cookers from this decade! And no, I’m not giving any of them up, no matter how many times Kurt tells me it’s ridiculous to have so many slow cookers! 😉

For every party I throw, I cook up at least one, usually three or four recipes in my slow cooker. Slow cooking for parties allows me to prep everything the night before, then let the slow cooker do all of the work while I enjoy the party!

My Superbowl party is the perfect example of this. Each year, I prep 4-5 slow cookers the night before with different meats. Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork, Smoked Chipotle Brisket and Beef Barbacoa are always on the menu! I slow cook them overnight, then set up a taco bar for the party. This means people can eat whenever they would like and I get to watch the game!

This week I decided to put together the perfect summer crock pot fiesta, featuring an appetizer, entree and dessert, all made in crock pots!

I first whipped up a Crock Pot Green Chili Queso Dip in a 2.5 quart oval mini casserole crock pot. It was the perfect size for the dip and I love the blue pattern on the Crock Pot! While I only slow cooked the dip for about 2 hours on low, I set the Crock-­Pot to warm so the dip was hot and ready whenever guests arrived!

For the entree, I made Slow Cooker Carnitas Tostadas in a Lift & Serve 6-Quart Oval Slow Cooker. I love how easy the hinged lid lifts up and lets me use both hands to get in the Crock Pot and prepare the dish. The process is also cleaner, as there’s no mess from removing the lid, since it stays right on the slow cooker!

I served the carnitas on tostadas with a little bit of the Green Chili Queso Dip as the base and a little guacamole on top. Seriously, YUM!

For the dessert, I whipped up these Crock Pot Dessert Fruit Taco Cups in a 3.5-Quart Casserole Crock Pot. It was the perfect size for filling with delicious summer fruits like peaches and nectarines!

After slow cooking for a couple of hours, I served the warm fruit in homemade taco cups. I topped them with cold vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel syrup.

Is there really anything better than vanilla ice cream slowly melting over warm cinnamon spiced fruit in TACO CUPS? I think not!
