One of the biggest positives about using meal prep in our house is that we get to use up a lot of our pantry staples for one-pot dump dinners. If you’re craving a chicken recipe or slow cooker recipe that you can easily make fast, there’s nothing better than one in your crockpot.

I’ve found that when I use my crock pot for soups, it makes literally a perfect one-pot meal. (and yes, this doesn’t take away the fact that I still love my Instant Pot and pressure cooker but sometimes a slow cooker soup is just what we need!) 

Easy Crockpot Soup

There’s a reason why I like to plan out a soup recipe at least once a month for the family. While I love cooking up pot roast or pork chops, I’m also realistic in the fact that sometimes I need a recipe that is going to have leftovers.

Because we’re all busy, right? From the time commitments for the family to try to plan out the days and events for my own life, knowing that I can cook up a simple and easy soup saves me a lot of time and stress. 

But most of all, I love that there are so many great slow cooker soup recipes that I can do. Some of my favorite soups include chicken thighs and chicken breasts, but let’s not forget about beef and pork.

Adding all kinds of kidney and white beans makes this bean soup hearty for sure. Canned will decrease the cook time to next to nothing. The kids love creamy soups like Crockpot chicken enchilada soup with chips on top too.

This is one of the best ways to use up frozen veggies, too. If you’re anything like me, you might overbuy vegetables at the store and find yourself having an abundance of them.

If I find out that I’m overloaded with frozen or canned veggies, I know that I’m going to be making a delicious slow cooker vegetable soup.

Easy Crockpot Soup Recipes with Few Ingredients

In all reality, this might be the reason that I love using my crockpot for soups. It’s because I don’t have to add in a ton of ingredients to get a delicious flavor and taste. Some of the best crockpot soups are ones that have just had a handful of ingredients like our Crockpot potato soup

I still think back to the days of my mom cooking and she made a killer ham and beans crockpot soup that still has my mouth-watering. It was minimal ingredients but huge in flavor.

Easy Crockpot Soups and Stews

You’ll hear a lot of people talk about soups and stews but there is actually a difference between the two. Typically when you’re cooking a stew recipe, you’re going to be braising the meat first.

But when you’re making a soup, you don’t have to worry about that step and you just have to add in the veggies or meats.

I’m a fan of either and won’t ever turn down a bowl full of something warm and delicious and homemade!

Soup Toppings

The other super important topic that we need to talk about is the topping choices for your soups. I’m a huge fan of adding topics because I think that they just add in so much flavor.

This also leaves the door wide open to varying up the toppings, too. Because as we all know, not all are created equal. 

  • Crackers
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheese
  • Diced onions
  • Jalapenos
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Hot sauce
  • Pulled pork or other shredded meat

Those are just a few of the topping choices. Don’t forget that you can also add in other spices and seasonings as well to give your soup a good heat.

Tasty Crockpot Soup Recipes

Another big reason to use your slow cooker is that they just do the perfect job for low and slow cooking. The longer that your soup can simmer and cook, the more flavor that it’s going to have.

Some recipes call for cooking on low while others call for a higher temperature. I tend to find that the low and slow produce an overall better flavor for the recipes that I like to cook. 

Soup in the slow cooker holds a large number of ingredients. That means there is the possibility for leftovers for days. Here are a few more we love, let’s start with homemade butternut squash soup and split pea.

You can keep either of these chunky or really smooth with a little blending from an immersion blender. For leftovers make sure it comes to room temperature before moving it into any sort of containers.

I like to portion it out into smaller amounts, enough for lunch the next day for one person. Then transfer into a microwave safe bowl, stir and heat for 30 seconds, stir, and keep going like this until it is as hot as you’d like.

Serve with air fryer bread or with some croutons on the top. It will keep well for several days but may need to be thinned out a bit. Just use some broth or water to get it back to the right consistency you want.
