This thing called life has been on fast forward mode lately. Our daily routine looks a little something like this: wake up, make some coffee, then go go go! Of course being busy isn’t all that bad because it makes the workday go by super quick. But being busy has also given a whole new meaning to the simple saying ‘don’t blink’.
The one saving grace for us is crockpot dinners. Being able to toss a few things in the slower cooker and let it do its thing. Coming home to a fully cooked dinner. Um, yes please! And Simply Potatoes makes our slow-cooker recipes even better.

This particular recipe for Slow Cooker Mexican Hashbrown Casserole is one of our family favorites. It is super tasty and it is super easy to whip up thanks to Simply Potatoes. All you have to do is add in a few extra ingredients and let it cook itself into a flavor explosion!
