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

I've got two barley soups to post:

Turkey Barley Soup

* 5-1/2 cups chicken broth
* 1 cup diced celery
* 2/3 cup medium pearl barley
* 2/3 medium onion, diced
* 1/2 cup diced carrots
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
* 1/2 bay leaf
* 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
* 1/8 teaspoon pepper
* dash cayenne pepper
* 1 cup cooked turkey
* 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, combine the first 11 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until vegetables and barley are tender. Stir in turkey and parsley if desired; heat through. Discard bay leaf before serving.


AND my new fave ....

Vegetable Barley Soup


* 7 cups vegetable broth
* 3/4 cup uncooked barley
* 1-1/2 large carrots, chopped
* 1-1/2 stalks celery, chopped
* 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
* 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
* 3/4 onion, chopped
* 2-1/4 bay leaves
* 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
* 3/4 teaspoon white sugar
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley
* 3/4 teaspoon curry or Thai seasoning powder
* 3/4 teaspoon paprika

Pour the vegetable broth into a large pot. Add the barley, carrots, celery, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and onion. Season with garlic powder, sugar, salt, pepper, parsley, curry or Thai seasoning powder, and paprika. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 90 minutes. The soup will be very thick. Adjust by adding more broth or less barley if desired.

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.
I made this today, I didn't get to make it the other day, anyway, I thought I'd died and went to chili heaven, it is delicious!! Thanks for sharing!

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

YAY! I am so glad everyone loves my white chicken chili!

My husband always says it's the reason he decided he had to marry me: I made it for him over a fire one night while we were camping, when we were dating ... and he said that, while eating it, that was the moment he really 'knew' I was the perfect woman for him It's THAT good!!

Texas Ranch Style Stew

http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/T...nch-Style-Stew

I make this all the time for my crew of farmhands and they love it. I always stretch the recipe by adding more pasta and V-8 juice (I buy the big can of generic). The ranch-style beans are good, but most of the time I just use canned chili beans. I also throw in more corn for color.

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

Soup!? I love soup, here are some recipes from my blog, I just copied and pasted them, so if they read funny.................you know why haha!!



Turkey & Wild Rice Soup
5-6 cups Turkey Stock
1 Cup Shredded Turkey
1 Cup Cooked Wild Rice
1 Cup Veggies (we used leftover corn, but mushrooms would work great or any other veggie!)
1 small finely diced onion
1-2 cloves finely chopped garlic
Salt, Pepper, Parsley or whatever other seasonings you prefer

Super easy here people, just throw it all together and let it simmer for a while. Serve hot with some nice crusty bread. That's it!

Chili
2'ish LBs of Dried Beans (I used Kidney, Black, Great Northern, and Pinto today)
1 Quart of home canned Tomato's in their own juice
1 lb Grass Feed Beef, browned
1-2 Cups of Turkey Stock (can use beef or chicken)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 pepper, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Paprika, Cumin, Cayenne, Oregano, and whatever other spices you please

*This makes A LOT of Chili, we ate it twice. I froze a yogurt container full, plus there are still some leftovers in the fridge. Half it for a smaller family*

Soak the beans in a warm spot for about 24 hours. Changing the water a few times. Soaking your beans is a crucial part, don't skip it! I do not soak in anything but just plain soft water. Sometimes I don't make it to 24 hours, sometimes I go way past that. It's baby steps here, doing the best you can

Rinse beans well and cover with water, bring to a light simmer and cook until tender. Drain water and rinse again, then add your tomato's, stocks, veggies, and seasonings.

Simmer for 1/2 hour, then check your spices. Add more to taste. I also added about 2 TBS flour at the end to thicken up my chili. We like it nice and thick, no runniness please!

Oxtail Soup

Tomato Soup

3 cups of Tomato's; cooked and then pureed
1 1/2 cups Chicken Stock
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Onion
3 Cloves Garlic
2 TBS Butter
Salt, Pepper

First I sauteed the garlic and onions in some butter, then I added the cooked tomato's. Puree these ingredients well in a blender, then add to a sauce pot. Combine in your milk, chicken stock, butter, salt, and pepper and simmer until hot through out.
