We’re back with another Round Up Sunday! I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend, and that this roundup is a day-brightener for any “Sunday Scaries.” I’ve found that the best way to cure the scaries are to get a workout in – even if it’s just a nice walk outside – practice some self-care (hello relaxing bath + calming playlist), and of course, make delicious food like these healthy slow cooker recipes.
That’s why I’m bringing you some recipe inspiration each Sunday morning. Fall is the absolute best time for cooking, in my opinion. The meals are warm, the flavors are bold, and everything brings a sense of total comfort. It reminds me a lot of my childhood with my mom making these super flavorful dishes. With her in town this week, it’s only appropriate that I round up some of the best.
Speaking of comfort, this Sunday I rounded up 12 of my favorite recipes that can be made in a slow cooker! That’s right – fire it up, add your ingredients, and leave that baby to cook all day long while you enjoy the rest of your day. It’s a great way to meal-prep for the week OR double the recipe to feed a bigger crowd. Take a scroll and just imagine how incredible your house will be smelling with one of these…

Great ideas for using the slow cooker to make soups this Fall!

Your taco lentil soup is one of my favorite meals to make in the fall. I love that it’s so easy to use for meal prep too.
So great to hear!
The slow cooker is the best!! I’m thinking I’m going to try that chicken tortilla soup this week!
Agreed! I hope you do and enjoy!!
I’ve Got several of these on my list of things to make for the next couple weeks! I especially loved your story about the salsa verde soup and how that’s came to be!
Perfect! They’re awesome for meal-prepping for the week (and yes LOVE that salsa verde soup 😉 ).
Oh my goodness!!! These all look amazing so I’m waiting for cooler weather in Texas!
Once the cooler weather hits these will be perfect! Hope you get a chance to try them soon 🙂
Fabulous roundup for fall inspiration!
Hi! I can’t wait to try all of these! Do you have the link to the taco lentil soup? Every time I click on it, it brings me to the chicken salsa verde. Thanks!
Hi Lindsay! Thanks so much for the heads up. The link should be updated (and is right here 🙂 ).
Thank you so much for posting! My kids are out late almost every night so dinner needs to be ready from the moment they get home. I’m always looking for healthy slow cooker meals.
These recipes will be perfect for the kids! Toss ’em in the slow cooker and you’re good to go 🙂
My kids are not interested in eating vegetables they just want fast food, now I decide to put something spicy at home. I follow your recipes.
I hope you find something they enjoy in here!
I might excited to try these! Will these recipes also work w a riven cooker?
I haven’t tried them in a rice cooker, but some of them might!
