Crockpot Thai Chicken from The Fitchen
Eat this tender, shredded chicken in tacos, sandwiches, lettuce wraps, or straight up in a bowl. Lemongrass and green curry paste give it most of its flavor—add a couple Thai chiles if you want to turn up the heat.

Dal is a thick lentil stew loaded with spices—Indian comfort food. This recipe uses yellow split peas, but you can use any type of lentil (or even black-eyed peas)
Slow Cooker Spiced Nuts from The Real Food Dietitians
The only bad thing about these sweet, spiced nuts is having to resist going at them while the smell of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cardamon, nutmeg, and vanilla wafts through your kitchen for two and a half hours while they cook. A clever lining of parchment paper keeps the tempting snacks from sticking to the slow-cooker.
Smoky Beanless Chili from Stupid Easy Paleo
This gluten-free and paleo-friendly chili gets a hit of sweetness from sweet potato and butternut squash. Cook up a big pot and let it warm you all the way through winter. Packed up right, it will last three months in the freezer.

This dish is super filling thanks to all that broccoli and beef. Try serving it over a bed of brown rice.
