Today I have one of my favorite side dish recipes for you, Slow Cooker Potatoes! Slow Cooker Garlic Ranch Potatoes and Slow Cooker Taco Potatoes. I love both and can’t wait to hear which one is your favorite!

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.

Tips for making Crock Pot Potatoes:

  • You don’t need a lot of water in the slow cooker. The potatoes will have some water come out of them while the cook plus you have ingredients like oil to bring some moisture. They may look dry when you put them in, but they’ll be perfect, moist, and tender once cooked.
  • I have made Garlic Ranch and Taco Slow Cooker Potatoes but you can play around with the flavors! You could make Italian Potatoes with your Italian Dressing Mix and your favorite herbs or you can make them plain and sprinkle on some parmesan before serving.
  • I didn’t peel the potatoes because…LAZY! There’s no need to peel the red potatoes before tossing in the slow cooker.

I am SO excited about these Garlic Ranch Slow Cooker Potatoes…They are SUPER simple, super yum…and perfect for busy people 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!

And if Garlic Ranch isn’t your thing, I hope the Spicy Taco variety is! Both are delicious, EASY, and perfect for THANKSGIVING!

For the GARLIC RANCH SLOW COOKER POTATOES

  • 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 1 packet
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Spray a large slow cooker with non-stick spray.

  2. 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.

  3. 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)

  4. Serve hot, enjoy!
