There are days when you want to lose yourself in the kitchen, enjoying the hours spent standing over the stove. And then there are all of the other days of the year. When your calendar is packed -- or when you simply want a satisfying supper -- let your slow cooker handle dinner duties. These easy (and easy-to-clean-up) recipes prove that you can create flavor-packed, hearty meals with a little prep and the flip of a switch.
Use a sturdy pot, skillet, or slow cooker to prepare complete hearty meals, including beef stew, chicken and dumplings, chili, vegetarian curry, gumbo, shrimp jambalaya, paella, arroz con pollo, and much more.
