25 Slow Cooker Dinners with 6 Ingredients or Less

I love making slow cooker meals because they are worry free. I can just toss some things into the pot and come back a few (or several) hours later to a hot and delicious meal! I recently got this slow cooker that helps me to make sure my meat doesn’t dry out because you can set it on a timer, or set it to go to warm after the meat reaches a certain temperature. Its the best thing ever!

I think you guys like slow cooker dinners too because when I asked you to take this short survey many of you said you wanted main dish recipes, and quick and easy meals, and this is both! So here today for you we have 25 slow cooker dinner recipes with 6 ingredients or less. The great thing about a low number of ingredients is you don’t have to go to the store to get 50 million things just to make these delicious things, maximum you’ll need only 6 – and I’m betting you have a bunch of these ingredients already on hand in your kitchen or pantry so you could make one of these delicious dinners today!

  7. This is perfect timing! I’ve been using my Sunday’s to meal prep for the week to come. I cook all of our breakfasts (usually some type of egg muffin) lunches, and I divvy up the ingredients and prepackage/freeze my slow cooker dinners. I just thaw them the night before and toss them into my trusty slow cooker and let it do all the work. This is fantastic. Pinned and tweeted. Can’t wait to try some of these next week :)

    I want to try the easy White Chicken Chili and the Ham. My aunt used to make something similar, so there is a hint of nostalgia.
