The BEST Weeknight Crock Pot Meals

Aren't crock pot meals the best invention ever?! I love how super useful they are for making dinner so easy!

What I don't like about them is that sometimes recipes for them are so labor intensive it doesn't really seem to help at all, and really isn't worth it. Have you ever made a crock pot lasagna? I was under the impression that it would be so super awesome, but I think it took me just as long as normal - except at 6am. UGH.

To me, a crock pot meal are for those nights when you have NO time to make a meal, but you still need to eat something (and something that doesn't come out of a drive-thru lane).

If you are in the market for a new crock pot, my favorite is this 6 quart Crock Pot - and yes, I have the red one! Its not super fancy, but I love it in its simplicity. All you really need are high, low, and off. This does come with an extra warm feature, which is nice. It also has a locking lid, which is totally necessary if you plan on traveling to potlucks and parties with your crock pot. And this particular model also comes with a mini-dip warmer, too! I love that the stone basin and the lid can both go in the dishwasher. I highly recommend this one if you are shopping for a new one!

Ok, so on to the recipes! Below you will find over 60 awesome recipes that take almost no work at all - these are for the days when all you have time to do is dump stuff in the crock pot and ignore it until its time to dump it on a plate - or dump, heat, and eat.

No fussiness, no funky ingredients. Just pure EASY deliciousness the whole family can enjoy!
