Whether you’re someone who loves to spend their afternoons cooking up a storm, or someone who just barely manages to make a sandwich before 10:00 PM, there’s no denying the slow cooker is a lifesaver for simplifying kitchen duties. I’m constantly amazed at just how many things can be thrown into one kitchen essential and come out ready to eat in a matter of hours—usually with little-to-no prep beyond adding in the ingredients. As the weather cools off and nights get chilly, there’s no better time for some easy slow cooker fall soup recipes. Delicious, warm and simple? Sounds like an autumnal dream.
Right now, at least half of my current go-to recipes involve a slow cooker, and I’ve gotten endless compliments on them all, not to brag. Sometimes I don’t even feel right taking the credit considering how dang easy it is to make a delicious meal with hardly any work involved. You can whip up some seriously incredible dishes—including hearty soups!—with such little effort. It’s enough to make even the most novice of chefs feel like a pro.

Once you’ve secured a slow cooker (or grabbed yours from the cabinet), it’s time to whip up some ridiculously easy fall soups. Whether you’re looking for the perfect dish to serve to your friends on game day (bacon cheeseburger soup, anyone?) or need a simple weeknight meal that will taste just as delicious the next day for lunch, these recipes are here to make your life so much easier.
