Favorite Fall Crock Pot Recipes

by agirlandhermutt on October 16, 2015

There is something magical and wonderful about the crock pot. I didn’t really discover this little tool until I was in my late 20s. I think my Mom probably had some weird phobia about leaving it plugged in all day and randomly burning down the house so we never really did slow cooker meals. I live life on the edge though! Once I discovered crock pot liners, my crock pot love got out of control. Crock pot liners=Less clean up!

As the leaves start to change colors and the heater starts to hint at being turned on, I get in the mood for all things comfort food related. Here are a few of my favorite fall dishes…


My number one dish for Fall is from SkinnyTaste. This recipe is a favorite in my house and in several of my friend’s houses too!

Crock Pot Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili

(Can you say that 5 times fast?!) I know I said I don’t really like anything pumpkin flavored but this is an exception. And pie. Don’t forget the pie. It doesn’t have a huge pumpkin punch, but the pumpkin gives the chili a really nice smooth finish. MMmmmm…. BUT! I do NOT use the bay leaves that are in this recipe. Nope. No way. No how. Those things almost killed me!

Slow Cooker Kalua Pig
My friend, Karen, introduced me to this recipe. She served it one night over a simple green salad and topped it with some easy guacamole for dressing. Ughhh. I could have eaten the whole thing! Honestly, I’ve never tried the special salt in the recipe and it still tastes wonderful.

PS. If you haven’t checked out Nomnompaelo’s recipes, you must! Even if you aren’t paleo, it is a great resource for some yummy eats.

Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken
Yet another SkinnyTaste recipe. This one is so easy that there is no way you can screw this up. I should note that I leave out the cilantro. That crap is disgusting. It tastes like soap. I love to eat this straight up, over lime flavored rice or my favorite, cauliflower rice.

Crock Pot Italian Turkey Meatballs
Last SkinnyTaste recipe. I swear! This one is so good and so easy! She recommends making your sauce. Good on ya if you do. I just use whatever my favorite jarred sauce is at that moment in time. I made these last year for a Super Bowl party and there were gone before halftime.

Crockpot Applesauce
Apple picking is super popular in New England. I go almost every fall. I used to just go, pick apples and then leave them in the bag to rot till I remember to throw them out. 😉 However! Since I discovered this applesauce recipe I just throw them all together for this purpose. Sooooo good.

Ham & Cheese Party Rolls
These aren’t a crock pot recipe, but they are just so warm and yummy that I had to include them in this goodie list. The ham combined with the glaze is just warm and lovely. Plus these sucker could not be easier to make. I recently made them for a little gathering at my house and they were the first things to disappear!
