White Bean and Chicken Chili
One of those “killer” recipes that is sure to wow any crowd (especially when they find out how simple it is), this nine-ingredient slow cooker chili relies largely on pantry staples such as canned white beans, chicken broth, and canned roasted green chilies. To build rich flavor, the chicken is first seared in a skillet and the aromatic onions and fresh garlic are lightly sauteed in the same pan with the remaining flavorful juices and browned bits from the chicken before being transferred to the slow cooker. To add extra flair to your chili, set this vibrant stew out with individual bowls of sour cream, ripe avocado, sliced radishes, diced tomatoes, crumbled cotija (a salty Mexican cow's milk cheese), and fresh limes for topping.

Easy Brunswick Stew
The best part about this scrumptious dish is right in the name of the recipe–it's exceptionally easy to make. Just combine all of the ingredients, set your slow cooker for 8 hours, and serve this classic stew with a hunk crusty bread. This cook-out favorite can be made a day or so in advance of serving--the flavors grow more richly intense with time. If you refrigerate before serving, you can return the stew to your slow cooker and reheat, uncovered, over low heat--giving it an occasional stir--until warmed through.

We were surprised and delighted by how well lasagna cooks up in the slow cooker. Be sure to use traditional noodles, and place them in the cooker uncooked. We tried the recipe with specially formulated no-bake noodles, and they didn't work as well.
