10 Must-Make Slow Cooker Soup, Chowder and Chili Recipes

January 19, 2014

When our 3 1/2-year-old daughter heard the meteorologist announce more foul weather on the East Coast she exclaimed, "More snow?!" We live in Seattle where our winter has been mild, but I was impressed by her concern for the folks who have been experiencing nothing but storms this season (and her knowledge of the fact that it was even snowing somewhere!). So I pulled out our slow cooker and started a batch of chili, as if to help warm my friends back East. Whether you're snowed in or just plain chilly, I hope you enjoy some of these easy slow cooker recipes, from a tasty Chicken Gumbo and a hearty Beer and Cheese Chowder, to a lovely Beef Barley Soup and a healthy Tuscan White Bean Soup scented with rosemary.
