Looking for the best, easy crockpot recipes that the whole family will love? This post is all about crockpot recipes.
Easy and delicious cooking is a necessity in the busy lives we all live. One of the key ways to cook simple, tasty meals is by using a crockpot.
Crockpot recipes have legit been around since our grandparents were kids. These devices are one of the coolest, easiest to use kitchen devices on the market. The best part is that they cook food slowly, making it super tender and flavorful. Some of them also automatically turn off when the food is cooked, which is ultra-convenient. (This one has this feature!)
We received this crockpot as a wedding gift last year and have used it to make so many incredibly delicious meals since! Here are five of our favorite easy crockpot recipes that you can guarantee the whole family will love!

Best, Easy Crockpot Recipes
1. Chicken Fajitas
This fajita recipe is one of our favorite crockpot recipes because it is incredibly easy! We made it when we had guests over once, and they absolutely loved it. This dish can be served in tacos with condiments like lettuce, cheese, tomato, or it can also be served over rice.
Another healthy swap we always make when eating Mexican is using Plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream. In my opinion, it literally tastes the exact same but is way healthier and packed with protein and probiotics!
Try this simple and easy swap, you won’t regret it!
2. Skinny Kung Pao Chicken
We loved this extremely easy and fresh-tasting recipe! There are many whole food ingredients which we love. We felt it was a bit saucy, and even though the sauce was delicious and flavorful, I’d recommend straining it a tad when serving it.
Typically, we have this dish over cauliflower rice, one of our all-time favorite low-card swaps for rice! We will also be adding extra peanuts next time we make this dish since we LOVE peanuts in stir-fry type of dishes!
We’ve been LOVING these new Marin Low Bowls from Crate and Barrel to eat dishes such as this Kung Pao Chicken over rice. It’s like a cross between a plate and a bowl and just is really enjoyable to eat from! Ha, I sound crazy, I know, but trust me just try them.
3. Chicken Tortilla Soup
Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of the most delicious and warm and coziest meals out there in my opinion. We love making this recipe on a chilly, rainy day. I love it best served with a dollop of Greek yogurt, diced avocado, tortilla strips, and cheese on top. It is so delicious and always makes a ton of leftovers!

4. Tuscan Lentil Soup
This Tuscan Lentil Soup recipe is PACKED with so much flavorful. It also has a million veggies and is so hearty. A lot of times men love this recipe because of the sausage and hearty consistency. This one is a great go-to when you just are out of dinner ideas and need something easy to throw together!
5. Pulled Chicken
You just really can never go wrong with pulled chicken. I absolutely LOVE anything barbecue. This recipe is so easy and incredibly delicious! I love it best served on a whole wheat bun with coleslaw! So delicious and so simple!
