Chicken noodle soup tastes incredibly delicious on a cold winter day, but once you taste how great this slow cooker Chicken Noodle Soup tastes, you will want to make it year-round. Chicken breasts are one of the cheapest meats in your butcher shop. Go ahead and buy the chicken breasts with the skin on them to make your soup more flavorful.

Consider using poultry seasoning on the chicken before putting it in the slow cooker.
You can prepare pasta shells right in your crockpot, making it easy to get supper on the table. For a meatless meal, stuff the shells with a spinach and cheese mixture.

Make it Cajun night tomorrow night at your house by putting some red beans on to soak. Your slow cooker is the perfect place to soak them.

Nothing could be simpler than making a root beer pot roast. This meal is extremely flexible as you put the pot roast in the crockpot and pour a can of root beer over it. Serve it the first night with a great salad and some vegetables. Then, stir in some barbecue sauce, shred the meat, and serve it on buns the second night. You can also efficiently serve it as open-faced sandwiches with some potatoes and gravy. While this recipe calls for rump roast, you can easily substitute bottom or top round steak and prepare the same way.
If you love ribs, but do not have the time to mess with cooking them on the grill, then try Hawaiian Ribs. This recipe has the perfect amount of tangy and sweet. Pork and beef ribs work equally well. You can sear the ribs to keep them firmer while cooking or put them in the crockpot. This recipe adds heat through sriracha, but you can swap it out with barbecue sauce or ketchup if you do not want a spicy taste.

It is so easy to make Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings in the slow cooker. Combine leftover chicken breast with chicken broth and chicken bouillon. Let it simmer all day. Then, right before you serve it, tear up tortillas and add to the mixture. You can use wheat or flour tortillas. The result will taste like you worked over a hot stove all day.

If the meat does not shred by itself, tear it up with a knife and fork before adding the tortillas.

A favorite of many people, this recipe is a great option to take to a potluck as it serves a crowd at a very reasonable cost. Use a rotisserie chicken from the deli, boil chicken until done, or use can chicken as it will not matter. You can also choose to sauté the onions and pepper ahead of time if you want a softer texture, but they will do just fine without it.
You can use chicken or beef to make crockpot stuffed peppers. Choosing to use quinoa means you do not have to pre-cook it first, but you can use pre-cooked rice if you prefer.

Choose the cheese that your family likes the best or whatever is in the refrigerator that needs to be used. Serve it with a dash of Tabasco or some salsa if you love Mexican food.
While most crockpot recipes need to cook for several hours, you can make salmon in your slow cooker in about two hours.

While you need to do a little prep work on the stovetop to put this dish together, you can relax for about four hours and return to find perfectly prepared pepper steak.
