Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

It's cold here in Indiana, and suddenly all I want to eat is soup and warm bread.

We have our 2 or 3 favorite soups and chilis - but we need more variety! Post your favorite recipes, please - for any and all soups, stews, and chilis. Mmmmm!

Re: Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

This is my go to recipe for chili, it's awesome! The only thing I do different is I use 1 29oz can of tomato sauce, 2 14.5oz cans of stewed tomatoes and 1 10oz can of tomato puree. Oh I leave out the celery and I sautee the onions and green pepper before I add it to the chili. We just had it last night

Re: Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

It's not super thrifty but OH SO tasty:

Zuppa Tuscana (Olive Garden) - serves 6, unless you're hungry!

1 lb mild or spicy Italian sausage (or smoked sausage, etc)
6 slices bacon (I usually use Oscar Meyer bacon bits)
1 medium onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 quart chicken broth
2 medium all-purpose potatoes, cut into small cubes
sea salt to taste
2 cups shredded kale (i have also used spinach)
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper or a bit of hot sauce (optional)

Crumble and cook Italian sausage until done; drain fat
Fry bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels; crumble and set aside.
Drain all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from pot.
Add onions to pot and cook over medium heat until softened.
Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. (do not brown)
Add chicken broth and potatoes.
Bring to boiling, reduce heat & simmer, covered, for 15 minutes
or until potatoes are tender.
Return the cooked sausage and crumbled bacon to the pot.
Add salt to taste
Add kale and red pepper/hot sauce, if using, and simmer for 4 minutes.
Stir in the cream and cook until heated through, without boiling.
Serve hot.


I usually use less meat and more potatoes to stretch the $$ further. Yum!

Re: Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

Bump for more - these all sound great!

Here's my famous white chicken chili - you can make it with black beans, too.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
1 can chicken broth
1 can Rotel original OR 1 cup favorite salsa
16 oz Great Northern beans
3 T ground cumin (or to taste)

Cut chicken into 1" cubes and saute in a medium pot with oil, garlic, paprika, curry, and chili powder. When chicken is mostly cooked, add half can of chicken broth and continue to poach chicken. Once broth and chicken mixture is simmering well, add the Rotel, the beans, and HALF of the cumin. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until chili begins to thicken. Add additional cumin (or to taste). Add more chicken broth, as desired, to thin. Simmer another 10 minutes. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Serves 4.

Re: Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

I made a yummy wild rice soup/chowder last night:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T butter
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tsp minced garlic
1 T paprika
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 can milk
1 package prepared long grain and wild rice (I used leftovers)

Saute celery in a medium pot with butter and garlic and add chicken to cook once celery begins to soften. When chicken is mostly cooked, add chicken broth and continue to poach chicken. Once broth and chicken mixture is simmering well, add the Cream of Chicken soup, milk, and paprika and let heat through until soup is a smooth consistency. Add prepared rice, stir well and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until soup thickens to consistency of a chowder. Serves 4.

Re: Soups, stews, chilis - share your recipes!

We love Bison Chili. Here is my recipe:

1 lb cooked ground bison (we find it at walmart)
1 14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 16 oz can of light red kidney beans
1/3 package turkey sausage (I buy butterball Turkey smoked sausage - It comes in 2 really long links. I cut each link in to 1/3's, use 2 pieces (cut into small pieces) and freeze the rest. This adds a great smokey taste!!)
1/4 cup chili powder
Lawry's seasoning salt
salt and pepper

Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook for 2-3 hours. I usually make a double batch and freeze what we don't eat.

We have this more often than I like to admit.
