Crockpot soups and stews are some of the easiest and most satisfying recipes ever. All you have to do is combine ingredients in your slow cooker and turn it on. The crockpot does all of the work. These recipes can be varied in so many ways, too. Use your favorite ingredients, add or subtract one or more ingredient, or change the flavor by changing herbs and spices.

Because soups are probably the most adaptable recipe, they are perfect for beginning cooks. It's really hard to ruin a soup, especially when it's cooked in the crockpot. Hotter cooking crockpots don't even make that much of a difference when the food is cooked in so much liquid. But they do make some difference, so reduce the cooking times by an hour or two if you have a new crockpot.

Enjoy these easy and delicious recipes.
