My Slow Cooker Crock Pot Chicken Corn Chowder is one of the best stick to your ribs soups that I make. The best part of this recipe is that everything gets tossed in the slow cooker and it does all the work. I know many of my readers get nervous when they see a lot of ingredients in a recipe but keep in mind this is a whole meal in a bowl and I promis it's super easy. It's perfect for those busy nights when everyone is on a different schedule and you need to have something hot for dinner that is ready when the kids pop in and out before practice or after school. It's also great for days when you know you won't have much time in the kitchen to cook after work. I usually pop all of this in my crock pot and turn it on low. By the time I get back in the house later that evening it's soup time and the house smells amazing. I promise you will love this recipe. Slow Cooker and Crock pot recipes are easy, fast and delicious. This chicken corn chowder is a wholesome soup with fresh chicken, corn and vegetables that the whole family will love. Put it together, set it and go to work.

5. Easy Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are often the target of sandwich snobbery€people just don't believe they're in the same class as clubs, Reubens, or even hamburgers. Which is a shame, because these hot, messy sandwiches are delicious. Sloppy Joes may be known as lowbrow cafeteria food, but they’re still delicious. To make these satisfying hot sandwiches, cook bell peppers, onions, and garlic until softened; add tomato paste; and then brown ground beef or turkey in the same pot. Add a few seasonings along with Worcestershire and tomato sauce, and simmer until the flavors concentrate into a sweet, tangy mixture. Pile a generous helping on a toasted bun, top with our Cabbage and Carrot Herbed Slaw, and don’t forget to tuck a napkin under your chin.
