Slow Cooker Green Beans, Potatoes and Bacon of My Childhood

Are your memories as a kid filled with comfort food? Simple meals that were easy on your wallet? Soft potatoes and crunchy green beans cooked with bacon. That’s kind of how I see this delicious dish. Simple, reasonably quick to prepare, budget-friendly, and made to please everyone.
This recipe is precisely that; it makes me think of my Granny’s delicious dinners.

Start by washing baby red potatoes cut in halves or quarters and dicing up a medium-sized yellow onion.

Unpack the ends & pieces of bacon (note that you could use regular bacon)

Then chop a large jalapeno pepper. (also optional if you don’t want it to be spicy)

Time to add your green beans into the slow cooker. Depending on the season, you’ll use fresh or frozen ones (make sure to unfreeze them).
Toss in potatoes.

and the onion and minced garlic.

We will add the jalapeno pepper and sprinkle in some black pepper.
Since there should be enough salt in the bacon, there is no need to add salt.

Mix everything together and pour the chicken broth. Homemade is best, though, not mandatory.

Set the slow cooker on HIGH setting and let it cook for 4 hours.
