Slow cooker soup makes the best warm-you-up meal for a chilly evening. Here you'll find our favorites: slow cooker chili, potato soup, hearty chicken noodle, and slow cooker beef stew—just to name a few. We've provided lots of tips on prepping ingredients for throw-together soups, plus ideas for spicing it up and stretching your soups to serve a crowd.

1 - pound lean ground beef
2 - 14 1/2 ounce cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
1 - 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 15 ounce can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 15 ounce can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 14 1/2 ounce can beef broth
1 1/2 - cups chopped yellow onions (3 medium)
1 - 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 - tablespoon chili powder
1 - canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
6 - cloves garlic, minced
1 - teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 - teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 - teaspoon ground coriander
2 - ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 - tablespoon honey
Sour cream (optional)
Chopped green onions (optional)
Unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

In a large skillet cook ground beef over medium-high heat until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.
Transfer meat to a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, broth, yellow onions, tomato sauce, chili powder, chipotle pepper, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and coriander.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in chocolate and honey. Cover and cook about 15 minutes more or until heated through. If desired, serve with sour cream and green onions and sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder.

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
