Instructions
  1. I am not sure what 4 cups of chicken would be in grams. Safe bet to go with 1 kilo of chicken, combination of legs, thighs, and breasts (skin on and bone in) for a good mix of meat. Boil that, then simply leave the chicken in the broth and let it cool to room temperature, this makes for juicy chicken. Remove the skin and bones, then chop or shred the chicken, save the broth for use in another recipe.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together first 8 ingredients. Set aside. Tear the tortillas into 1 inch pieces.
  3. Layer 1/3 of the tortilla pieces in a lightly greased slow cooker. Top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture and 2/3 cup cheese. Repeat the layers twice.
  4. Cover and cook on the Low setting for 3 1/2 hours, then remove the cover and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  5. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
Recipe Notes

Figure 60 Baht/1 kilo of chicken, the cheese would cost about 180 Baht/250 gram block. I cannot price the tortillas until I buy them and I will update the serving cost when I make this. For 6 servings, minus the tortillas, this is about $1.18 per serving.

Instructions
  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet, then drain off the fat and add the beef to your slow cooker, then to the slow cooker add the water, stock, taco seasoning, garlic, onion, and tomatoes, stir then cook on Low setting for 4-5 hours.
  2. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, add your pasta to a pot of boiling water and cook until just tender and drain well. Stir the Cream cheese into the slow cooker until well blended. Then add the Cheddar cheese and pasta and mix that in, leave uncovered and cook on High setting for another 10-15 minutes to melt the Cheddar and heat everything through.
  3. Sprinkle the top with cilantro and serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht/500 grams of beef, 180 Baht for the Cheddar (1 block of 250 grams), and 60 Baht for the 1/2 block of Cream cheese. For 6 servings this is about $1.67 per serving.

  1. Brown ground meat in a non stick pan along with the onion and garlic, when browned (not needed to be cooked through) pour into your slow cooker, and add tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes with juice, and add seasonings. Cook on Low setting for 5 hours.
  2. Add the pasta, spinach, and cheeses and mix well, top with an additional 1/2 cup of Mozzarella to melt onto the top, cook on High setting for another 30 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

750 grams of beef would be about 125 to 150 Baht, pork would be about 80 Baht, chicken would be less. Cheese, however, is the major cost. Figure about 140 Baht for Parmesan, and about 180 Baht for the Mozzarella. This comes out to about (using beef), for 6 servings, to about $2.45 per serving, pork would be about $1.97 per serving. Chicken would be less. Over all, not bad, chicken would be a good choice when friends or family visits.

Instructions
  1. First, I cannot stress the need to make the condensed soup yourself. It is not a only a cost saver, you know what is in it. It is so easy and I have a shortcut recipe for this on the site that I have made many times. Also, use the chicken stock powder instead of canned stock or make fresh stock yourself from a chicken carcass or from a previous chicken recipe.
  2. Pour the undiluted condensed soup and the stock into the slow cooker and add the bay leaf and chopped celery, stir to combine then add the chicken into the broth mixture, cover and cook on High setting for 3 hours or Low setting for 5-6 hours.
  3. Remove the chicken, if using just breasts, shred with two forks into bite size pieces and return to the slow cooker, and if using thighs, using two forks, remove skin and bone and set aside (great treat for your dog), then shred with the forks into bite size pieces and return to the slow cooker. Or feel free to use a combination of the two. Remove the bay leaf.
  4. About 20 minutes before the chicken is done (either on High or Low setting), boil a pot of water and cook your egg noodles or Fettuccine (which is what I will use) and the chopped carrot together. Drain and set aside. (Fettuccine pasta is much easier to get in the remote areas at Makro than egg noodles.) The reason for cooking the noodles, or pasta, separate is to prevent them from becoming mush.
  5. After the chicken is shredded and returned to the slow cooker, stir in the egg noodles or fettuccine pasta and carrots and heat for another 30 minutes, stirring once in a while as well, until heated through. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breast will cost about 35 Baht/500 grams. The soup canned will run about 55 Baht, make yourself for 22 Baht, and the stock will only cost a few Baht if made from the powder. For 8 servings, well under $1 per serving.

Instructions
  1. Brown the ground beef (or pork, or chicken), drain the fat.
  2. Place the potatoes in the bottom of your slow cooker pot along with the onion and garlic, add salt and pepper to your liking, add the ground beef. Top this with a layer of beans, then tomatoes, and add the water.
  3. If you cook the beans yourself, use about 1 1/2 cups of cooked beans for this recipe.
  4. Cover and cook for 7-8 hours on Low setting. About 15 minutes before the cook time is up, add the cheese to the top, cover and cook until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. If you like cheese, go with 1 cup of Cheddar and 1 cup of Mozzarella, but it adds to the cost.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef will run about 95 Baht/750 grams, if using minced pork, that will cost be less for pork and chicken. Cheese will run 75 Baht for 1/2 cup Cheddar. Everything else is minimal. For 4 servings this is about $1.25 per serving, less for 6 servings. Even less with pork or chicken. Over all, not a bad meal.

A variant, is to use Chili Beans, recipe here, thailand1dollarmeals.com/recipe/chili-beans/ for this to add more flavor to the casserole.

Ingredients
Cooked all day
  • 3 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 2 cups salsa Tesco brand works great, two 300 gram jars, OR make from a shortcut
Added after 6-8 hours
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Add the chicken to the bottom of your slow cooker. I used 3 good sized chicken breasts.
  2. Pour over the salsa. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 7 hours, check at 6 hours and if tender and shreds with a fork at this point, continue with the next step, if not tender, continue to cook and check at 7 hours. I used the Fast and Simple Fresh Salsa II listed on this site, excellent salsa which makes just a tad over 2 cups, use all of it.
  3. Plop the cream cheese on top of the chicken. Cover for about 10 minutes to let it get really soft. While the cheese is softening, shred the Cheddar cheese and cut up the tortillas into strips, and slice the olives.
  4. With the cream cheese softened, shred the chicken with 2 forks right in the slow cooker and stir together.
  5. Add the tortilla strips, 1 cup of Cheddar cheese, and half of the olives and stir this into the chicken mixture. Flatten this down and clean the sides of the pot.
  6. Add to the top the remaining cheese then olives. Cover and cook on High setting for another 45 minutes until the casserole is heated through.
Recipe Notes

Three chicken breasts cost me about 80 Baht, this would be less if you use thighs or quarters. Cream cheese will run about 120 Baht for a block. Cheddar cheese will run about 185 Baht per block of 250 grams, you only need one, shred the whole block. This can easily make 10 servings at a cost of about $1.15 per serving, overall, very good price.

Shortcut: Salsa.

This is an easy to make casserole in a slow cooker, and has lots of potential! Think using cubed chicken or minced pork. For greens instead of spinach, try some of the greens available at Tesco and most open markets, like Chinese Cabbage or Mustard Greens. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef with onion and garlic, no need to cook it through, just brown it. Put in slow cooker and add sauce, tomatoes and seasonings.
  2. Cook for 6-7 hours on Low setting.
  3. During the last 30 minutes, add the spinach, pasta, Parmesan cheese, and 1 cup of the Mozzarella cheese, and mix well, then turn the heat setting to High. Add the last 1/2 cup of Mozzarella cheese on to and allow to melt.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef would run about 150 Baht/kilo. Mozzarella cheese will run about 142 Baht for a package, and Parmesan will run about 140 Baht for a package, each package should be around the correct measurements needed. Mozzarella you will need to shred, Parmesan comes shredded. Even though the recipe calls for 750 grams of meat, just with a kilo and call it good, no one will complain. For these three major items, the cost would be about $2.12 per person for 6 meals. Not bad overall, still a reasonable dish to make at home instead of the high prices of a restaurant.

Shortcut: Tomato Sauce.
