A list of hearty slow cooker soup recipes to warm you up like beef stew, chicken tortilla soup and chili. There are so many delicious options that are easy to make and perfect for a cold night!

Soup is always a crowd pleaser and many times it’s a complete meal in one pot. I love to use my crock pot to make soup – it’s quick to put together and then you come home to dinner already done and waiting for you!

A group of slow cooker soup recipes like beef stew, white chicken chili and ham and bean soup.

Slow cooker soups are my go-to dinner option at least one night a week. There are so many different varieties that we never get bored. I often make different variations of chicken soup in the slow cooker, but sometimes I switch things up with a hearty beef stew or creamy soup.

The great thing about slow cooker soups is that you can often freeze the leftovers. I typically make a double batch just so I have some extra to put in the freezer! Chili, chicken soup and stews make great candidates for the freezer.

I love these recipes because simmering these soups for hours allows the flavors to become rich and amazing. There is nothing better than lifting up that lid to see the steam waft up and smell your fantastic meal.

It’s so easy to add some bread, crackers or simple side dishes to complete your dinner.

We enjoy a vast variety of slow cooker soup recipes so I want to share them with you. Here is a list of what I consider the top 20 slow cooker soup recipes!
