Celebration of Food Sunday

Today, in honor of January being National Soup Month, I'd LOVE to hear some of YOUR favorite soup recipes!

We are HUGE fans of soup on our home... especially if you add cheese and a dollop of sour cream on top!!!

Here are a couple of MY favorite recipes:

Mashed Potato Soup
White Chicken Chili



We also love soup! I tend to make 'stockpile/sale/leftover' soup! Whatever I have extra of or if something is a good deal that week I'll pick up some extra - Our faves tend to be chicken or turkey noodle, italian wedding and Minestrone!

My fav is taco soup...

Put all this in the crock pot and let cook for 5-6 hours.

1-2 lbs pre-cooked ground hamb
1 taco seasoning pack
1 ranch seasoning pack
1 can rotel
1 chopped onion (I just used dried minced onions)
Optional: 1 can black beans
1 can corn
(I don't use either since my hubby is fussy!)

I add a little bit of water, then a touch of flour in the end to thicken it up. It's more like chili consistancy than soup.

SO good! Top with shredded chedd and sour cream! YUM!

Chicken & Dumplings

In the crock pot for 4 hours on high, then 90 mins on low.
3 frozen chix breasts
2 cans cream of chix soup
1-2 cans chix broth (just enough to cover the chicken pieces)
1 chicken boullion cube or packet
garlic powder

90 mins before done (on low):
Take out each piece of chicken and shred it, place back in crock pot.
Then, cut 1 can french bread dough loaf into tiny pieces and toss into crock pot. Stir occassionally for the 90 mins.

Easy and no one will know it wasn't homemade! ;)

Shush! I am LOVING these recipes!


This is my friend's blog and recipe. But it's my favorite! So yummy!!


I make homemade chicken and dumplings -- I have to try this recipe. Sounds much easier and just as good. Thanks!

The Pohl Family

Growing up my mom would make homemade chicken noodle or chicken and rice soup. I love it and my son loves it too.

I usually buy a pk of drumsticks and a pk of thighs (this last time we tried a whole chicken, honestly there was not taste).

I fill water over all the chicken and boil.

Then I take the chicken out when it has boiled for about an hour.

Peel off the skin, and take chicken off bone and cut up.

Water has been reserved this whole time.

Add fresh sliced carrots, fresh sliced celerey, and diced onions are optional (we do not usually add).

Put chicken and veggies in the broth left from boiling.

Add 2 chicken boullen cubes.

Season to taste as it is cooking, I tend to add pepper to mine.

Then when veggies are tender add either rice or egg noodles and cook until done.

Simple, inexpensive if you know how to use the coupons, and sales, and so so yummy.


This is my favorite recipe for white chicken chili. It is very good for you and very delicious!


We love cheddar cheese with sausage and potato soup. Usually, we just make it from a powder mix when it goes on sale and then add the potatoes and sausage to the crock pot. Super filling and super yummy...and we always have leftovers!

Staying Lean

I only buy one and then trade coupons on ecoupons but I was blessed with having extra inserts and the paper delivered to me two extra of the General Mills and I bought an extra Detroit News and one Oakland press so three in total this week. I may review them and see if I need to buy another.

Amy K

my husbands grandmother stayed with us for awhile back in the fall. She is from the deep south and shared her Taco Soup recipe

2 lbs ground beef cooked w/onion
1pk taco season
1pk ranch dressing
2 cans stewed tomatoes
1 can rotel
2 cans pinto beans
1 can chicken broth
1 can white corn (I cannot find the particular brand in the north, so I use regular corn.

Heat through!

very similar to the one Kristin posted.

Also yummy with sour cream and shredded cheese.

It is a favorite


My favorite soup recipe is here...

I also made your croutons & dressing!! YUM!


Late to the party, but this recipe is so good and so easy it's almost criminal:

Italian Chicken Stew

Combine in Crock-Pot:

1 diced and sauteed onion.
Two minced garlic cloves or a couple spoonfuls of the pre-chopped stuff.
3 or 4 frozen chicken breasts.
1 can stewed tomatoes
4 cups (or 1 box or 2 cans) chicken broth.
A tablespoon or two of rich vinegar...I prefer balsamic.
Italian seasoning to taste.

Cook on high or low or whatever you feel like until the chicken is cooked and shreddable. A half hour or hour before serving, throw in a package of thawed frozen spinach and a package of frozen tortellinis. Once the tortellinis are warmed through, you're done.

I like it topped with freshly shredded parmesan and served with crusty bread!


My family loves Cheesy Corn and Potato Chowder from

It is so good and great to have when it's cold out, like now!
