The Best Crockpot Soup Recipes
Looking for an easy slow cooker soup? These crockpot soup recipes have been made many times over the years, and they’re all tried and true. Small effort and big flavor!
Times are still really strange right now, and because of that, I’m not sure how much time you have to cook.
Per social media, it seems like some households are spending days on end baking glorious homemade breads and elaborate cakes, while others are struggling to get a basic meal on the table.
I’ve had a mixture of both of those types of days, to be honest. Some days there’s lot of free time, and others we are just surviving. Whatever the reason, we’ve been using our crockpot a lot lately (most recently, for slow cooker chicken burrito bowls).
These crockpot soup recipes are here to help.
If you’ve followed for awhile, you may be familiar with some of these soups, although there’s some older ones you may have missed. I wanted to round up all of the slow cooker soup recipes I have in one place for you.

My best tips for making crockpot soup:
- Brown any meat, if you can – I know people (myself included) love recipes where you just dump raw ingredients into the crockpot and turn it on. And this is totally fine. BUT, if you want a better tasting soup with deeper flavor, brown any meat on the stovetop before you transfer it to your crockpot.
- On that note, there are now some models of slow cooker where the insert is safe for using directly on the stove top. I have one like this, and it’s made my life so much easier! This Crock-Pot brand model does exactly that.
- If possible, garnish with something fresh at the end, like fresh herbs. This adds a nice fresh flavor and makes the meal feel a little bit more special.

The taco soup sounds very good, and I’ve made the lentil soup before. The one thing I would love to see (unfortunately your blog can’t fix it) is to have our plumbing issues done with. We had a back up in our kitchen sink that has turned into replacing the drain out to the street. It turns out they’ll need to do more work on the drain because under the front of the house it is cracked from tree roots. They should be finished by the end of the day tomorrow, but it will be a second day with a 4 hour window with no sewer drain, which means no bathrooms, which is really interesting when you are old…. And we’re still not over the stress of being dumped unceremoniously from a cruise ship in Perth, Australia, just when the world was shutting down. Oh, for some calm!
Oh, Susan, I’m sorry to hear this. I wish I COULD send a plumber over to you! I know first hand exactly what you’re going through. We live in very old house in a very old neighborhood, and have been through almost all of the problems due to tree roots that a house could have (including having to dig up our front yard and completely replace the sewer line at our old house). Fingers crossed it’s fully fixed for you today. I’m so glad you made it home from your cruise, but I can’t imagine the stress you’re still feeling from that. Rest up and stay well. <3
