Quick & Easy Mexican Style Soup

If you keep cooked ground beef and sautéed onions in your freezer, you can have this easy soup on the table in under 15 minutes.

Black Bean Soup

Black beans are one of my favorite beans – they go well with corn and tomatoes in cold salads as well as hot sides, but the king of all black bean recipes is black bean soup. For this recipe, I prefer using prepared dry beans because they are more tender than the canned beans and it’s easier to get the right consistency for soup. If you like this soup, try a similar mixture without the broth to make a thick bean dip for corn chips.

Zuppa Toscana

Mexican Meatball Soup

This easy slow cooker soup is one of my favorite comfort foods and is a hit with everyone in the family. You could make your own meatballs if you prefer, but we are fans of Costco’s Italian meatballs and use those instead. When you are pressed for time, you can make it on the stovetop […]

Tortellini Zucchini Soup

I recently tried this yummy tortellini soup that surprised everyone with how good it was. I made lots extra, but even with the extra we ended up with barely enough to pack my husband a serving for lunch the next day! It was very quick and easy to prepare and could easily be made into […]

Tomato Tortellini Florentine Soup

Looking for a dressed up version of tomato soup? This delicious and satisfying version is perfect. You can serve it alone or add grilled cheese for more hearty appetites. Try a grilled cheese with a different kind of bread and a fancy cheese for a real treat.

Turkey Frame Soup

That turkey carcass leftover from your holiday meal is treasure, not trash! The frame from your turkey (or chicken) makes the most delicious broth you have ever tasted. Simply put the bones (and skin if you have any) into your slow cooker and cover it with water. Let it simmer overnight and in the morning you will have the base for a delicious soup.

Baked Potato Soup

It is starting to cool off with pleasant days and chilly nights – the perfect time for hearty soups and stews. Baked Potato Soup is one of our most requested recipes – it’s creamy and rich with the perfect balance of flavors. It’s a good way to use planned leftovers as well; have baked potatoes during the week and simmer a pot of this satisfying soup on the weekend. Start with 4 large baked potatoes, cooled. The recipe calls for scooping out the insides and discarding the peels, but I have long since abandoned peeling potatoes for anything. The peels are healthy so I include them in mashed potatoes, soups, potato salads, and just about everything else. Feel free to use only the white insides if you wish.
