10 Cozy Slow Cooker Recipes for a Tasty Winter

December 15, 2023

When things get fast and hectic this time of year, think slow.

Our new slow cooker collection is the perfect antidote to winter chaos. These cozy, hearty recipes barely take any work, so you’ll have plenty of time to celebrate the season and still enjoy a delicious and healthy meal.

To make sure we’re getting the most out of our slow cookers, we tapped Chef Danielle from our culinary team to share her top tips for slow cooker success. Here’s what she told us:

  • Searing. Although you can just throw everything into your slow cooker and press “on,” searing maximizes flavor. By browning your proteins in a little bit of oil, you’re adding complexity and flavor to your dish.

  • Layering. Because your ingredients all cook at different rates, place anything that takes a long time to cook at the bottom and layer up. Start with firm vegetables, then top with proteins, and finally your sauce.

  • Liquid. Be sure not to overdo it with liquid. If you end up with too much at the end, simmer in a saucepan to get the perfect consistency.

  • Think beyond the slow cooker. Pair your meal with rice, crusty bread, polenta, or whatever you’re craving.

Now that you’re equipped for a fantastic slow cooker experience, check out some of the recipes from the brand-new collection. From chili and soup to fajitas and tacos, every single one is packed with flavor—and couldn’t be easier to enjoy.
