My Favorite Easy Slow Cooker Recipes

Having a few great crock pot recipes is essential when you live a busy lifestyle.  This time of year I especially love a good slow cooker meal... so many of them are warm and hearty, and having dinner ready when I get home from work is such a relief in the busy back-to-school and holiday season.

Today, I am sharing my favorite, tried-and-true, easy, and delicious slow cooker recipes.  You'll definitely want to pin each of these!

1. Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast (source: Allrecipes).  Like the recipe description says, it tastes like you cooked it all day... but you didn't.  

2. Crock Pot Mississippi Chicken Thighs (source: Recipes that Crock).  This couldn't be easier, and is oh-so-good.

3. Crock Pot Whole Chicken (source:  Once you try this, you will never roast a whole chicken in the oven again.  This will give you the moistest, easiest whole chicken that you have ever made.

4. Easiest Pot Roast Ever (source: Allrecipes).  This recipe is foolproof.  Though I personally recommend stuffing some garlic slivers into the roast before you start cooking to give it a little something extra.

5. Mississippi Roast - Slow Cooker Pepperoncini Pot Roast (source: Allrecipes).  Like the chicken thigh version above, this is a savory and classic slow cooker recipe that needs to be on your rotation.

6. Mongolian Beef from the Slow Cooker (source: Allrecipes).  Like Mongolian BBQ, but at home.  I like to serve it with noodles.

7.  Slow Cooker Carnitas (source: Buzzfeed).  Do yourself a favor and make these for your next taco Tuesday.  DO IT.  They are AH-mazing.

8. Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings (source: Allrecipes).  These easy dumplings are loved by the whole family.

9.  Slow-Cooker Garlic Chicken with Couscous (source: Martha Stewart).  This slow cooker meal has a delightfully light white wine sauce.

10. Slow Cooker Korean Beef (source: Damn Delicious).  Savory and delicious, with beef so tender it falls apart on your tongue.

11. Crock Pot Party Meatballs (source: Allrecipes).  This is a personal recipe of mine, and is my most-requested recipe for our football tailgates and watch parties.

12. Slow Cooker Sausage, Spinach, and White Bean Soup (source: Damn Delicious).  This soup feels both light and hearty, which makes it a great meal any time of year.

13.  Paula Deen's Crock Pot Potato Soup (source: Recipe Keepers).  While I'm not sure this is actually a Paula Deen recipe, I can tell you that it is an amazingly delicious and creamy soup.  This one is a family favorite on a cool winter night.

14. Slow-Cooker Jambalaya (source: Betty Crocker).  This easy jambalaya recipe makes a large batch, so I like to make it when we have houseguests.

15. Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken (source: Allrecipes).  Another perfect recipe for a taco Tuesday, this chicken shreds up perfectly for tacos.
