Best Ever Crockpot Hearty Vegetable Soup

There is nothing that makes me happier than curling up in my comfy fleece pants, watching football, and eating a bowl of delicious hot soup on a Sunday in the Fall and Winter. That is pretty much my idea of the perfect day. So I’m always on the hunt for new or improved soup recipes to add to the Sunday rotation. This crockpot Veggie Soup sounded so yummy but being that I have a husband and teenage son who are decidedly carnivorous I had to tweak and add to the original version.

 Doesn’t that look delicious? My crew raved about this soup and it made a ton. We were able to get dinner for 2 nights plus Matt took it for lunch twice. I will definitely be making this again!

Game Day Crockpot Chili & Cornbread

There’s nothing better than delicious chili on a Sunday afternoon while we watch Football. It’s probably one of my favorite things about Fall. I’ve had a go-to chili recipe for years and I’ve been tweaking it slightly every time I make it until I finally got it just the way I like it. Matt likes his chili spicy so he adds sriracha sauce. I, on the other hand, do not like my insides to feel like they are on fire so getting the seasonings right was important to me.

Doesn’t that look delicious? I’m ashamed to tell you how many bowls I ate so I won’t. Even the kids enjoyed this chili and normally they turn their noses up at anything that might appear to include a vegetable.

Easy & Delicious Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili

We are a family of chili lovers but a person can only eat regular chili so many times in a month before it gets a little monotonous. So I went on a hunt for some different chili recipes to try. I found a Chicken Taco Chili recipe but it wasn’t quite right so I tweaked it a few times until I got it perfect for our family. This recipe is super easy- it’s a dump and go crockpot recipe using frozen chicken breasts. I don’t even defrost them first- just toss the still frozen chicken breasts into the crockpot with the other ingredients and your prep work is done!

Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili

 

Ingredients:

1 can (16oz) black beans

1 can (16oz) kidney beans

1 can (8oz) tomato sauce

1 pkg (10oz) frozen corn kernals

1 can Hunts Fire Roasted diced tomatoes with garlic

1 pkt taco seasoning

2 T cumin

2 T chili powder

3-4 frozen chicken breasts

 

Directions:

1. Combine beans, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder, and taco seasoning in crockpot.

2. Place chicken on top.

3. Cook on low for 10 hours or high for 6 hours.

4. Half an hour before serving, shred chicken and return to crockpot.

5. Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, and tortilla strips.

 

I’ve added this recipe to our regular dinner rotation- that’s how much we love it! The crunch from the tortilla strips (I found them in the salad toppings section) really makes the dish and the sour cream adds the perfect amount of creaminess. I love tossing this together in the crockpot early on a Sunday and smelling it cook all day long. Yum!

The Best Crockpot Chili Recipe

We are a family of Chili lovers. Matt would eat chili for every meal if I allowed it- that’s how much he loves it. Of course, if he ate it for every meal then he would no longer be allowed to live in the house so I have to space it out. The kids, who normally whine about anything that might possibly have some form of health benefit, eat more than one serving of my crockpot chili. I love to make this recipe on Sunday’s. It makes the house smell so yummy and it’s the perfect meal to enjoy while watching Football. I’ve tried so many chili recipes in the past and they all seemed to be missing something. After years of tinkering and tweaking, I have hit on the best crockpot chili recipe. It’s so simple I can’t believe it but the taste is out of this world. Seriously y’all, it takes almost no prep work and it all cooks in one pot.

Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I love loaded baked potatoes. I think they should be their own food group. I also love soup. And my crockpot. A recipe that can combine all three? Pretty much the best thing ever!  I’ve tried a bunch of different recipes for Loaded Baked Potato Soup and this one is my favorite. The whole point of using my crockpot is to make dinner easy and have minimal prep work. I am not a fan of the recipes that want me to cook the meal before putting it in the crockpot…what’s the point? This recipe uses frozen hashbrowns instead of having you cook the baked potatoes and then mash them.

Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup

 

Ingredients:

 

1 bag frozen shredded hashbrows, thawed

3 cans chicken broth

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 pkg cream cheese, full fat version

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 container sour cream

1 pkg real bacon pieces

 

 

Directions:

 

1. Combine thawed hashbrowns, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup in crockpot.

2. Cook on low for 5 hours.

3. Stir in softened cream cheese and cook on low for additional hour.

4. Serve topped with shredded cheese, sour cream, and bacon pieces.

 

This is so delicious. My whole family gobbled this down! I thought I was going to have some leftovers for lunch the next day but nope! It was gone. I love to serve this during the fall and winter on Football Sunday. The house smells divine all day long and this serves as excellent comfort food for Matt when his football team loses. Word. The best part- you can top this with anything you want! Green onions, tomatoes, different cheeses….anything you like! I served this soup at a family gathering and set up a toppings bar for everyone to load their soup with their preferred toppings. Talk about a huge hit!
