25 Family Slow Cooker Recipes

I love my crock pot. Seriously, it’s the best thing since sliced bread. (Even if you serve whatever you made with your crock pot ON sliced bread.) But, the problem I always have is making slow cooker recipes my whole family will love. So, I asked around, tried a few recipes, and came up with this list of  25 crock pot recipes the whole family will eat.


  1. Taco Soup. My daughter and her friends eat this stuff UP!
  2. Dr. Pepper Pork! I am not even kidding that this might be the best stuff you ever make in your slow cooker!
  3. Slow Cooker Chicken. Oh my gosh, if you want the tastiest chicken ever that you can use in all sorts of yum-tastic ways. This is the recipe for you.
  4. Chicken Tortilla Soup. It’s like eating Chicken Enchiladas, but with about a fourth of the work!
  5. Slow Cooker Asian Beef. The thing about asian food for me is that it’s SO hard to make the meat taste as good as I can get it when I just order takeout, but I never know what they used in my takeout. This tastes amazing, but I control what goes in it. Awesome.
  6. Ribs! No, seriously. You can make ribs in your slow cooker, and they are amazing. When I serve these to the kids, they go NUTS!
  7. Cheesy Tortellini. (Whoa that is a hard word to spell.) One of my facebook followers swears by this recipe and says that if you have meat lovers you can add a little sausage to make it extra yum.
  8. Apple Butter! Apple butter is like the super hot older sister of jelly. Your kids will eat this on– honestly, anything.
  9. Teriyaki Pulled Pork. Eat this on a sandwich, alone, sitting in a hammock. Whatever, just eat this.
  10. Sesame Chicken. Sometimes I serve this with noodles because the kids don’t always want rice. Either way– so good.25 family style slow cooker recipes
  11. French Dip Sandwiches. Years ago, there was this little restaurant down the street from my house that served these. Now that they are closed, I use this recipe to fulfill my needs, my wants, my desires for a french dip sandwich.
  12. Chicken With Salsa. Okay, so I love this recipe but I always sub ranch style beans for black beans. But I am weird about black beans, just ignore my substitution and carry on!
  13. Make a Honey Chicken BBQ Sandwich. These taste insanely amazing. Insane.
  14. This is the best pot roast ever. Real Talk.
  15. Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls are the most amazing thing in the history of ever.
  16. Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese. Because OMG MACARONI AND CHEESE!
  17. Salisbury Steaks are amazing. A family favorite for sure.slow cooker family recipes your kids will eat
  18. Slow Cooker Cinnamon Almonds are like Christmas and Thanksgiving all wrapped up in a crock pot.
  19. We have these Chicken Taquitos that you make right in your crock pot like once a week.

  21. Cheesy Chicken and Rice like my mom used to make!
  22. We eat these Italian Meatballs all the time at my house. SO GOOD!
  23. Did you know you can make ham in a slow cooker? You can, and it is amazing.
  24. And Meatloaf! Right there in your slow cooker!
  25. You know what goes great with Meatloaf? Corn on the cob. That’s what.
