I had frozen peppers on hand, and wanted stuffed peppers, but peppers don't stuff well after freezing, and I wanted to make something quick. I came up with this soup.
A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
Very, very, good as a leftover once it has a chance for the flavors to blend together. Perfect for a cold day. I freeze the extra in single serving size containers and heat in the microwave for a quick, hearty lunch!
This is a easy black bean soup with the smoky flavor and kick of chipotle peppers. Resist the urge to add any salt as the bacon and canned beans already bring enough salt to the soup the balance the dish perfectly. I used bacon ends for this recipe because they are cheap. If you can't find them, choice bacon is fine to use. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and Tostones (Fried Plantains).
A delicious and hearty soup with sausage, beans, and vegetables that is thick enough to make a meal! I serve this with a side of Italian bread with butter or extra virgin olive oil, oregano, toasted garlic, and basil to taste.
This is a quick easy soup recipe that has been in the family for years.
My Great-great grandmother's recipe, modified over 4 generations. I still can't believe it was FINALLY written down! The gumbo should be thin but not watery. P.S .-- I have a 3-gallon pot that I use to cook this and it is usually about 3/4 full. (Make sure you know the basics of making roux before you try this. If the roux is not dark brown, the gumbo will not have the rich taste necessary to give it that special taste). This is good for several days. It can also be frozen and reheated. Enjoy!
An easy to make homemade vegetable soup. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. Freeze leftovers and the taste quality only improves. All the ingredient measurements should be adjusted to your taste.
A hearty soup with an unusual flavor that can be made low carb by using green beans instead of mixed veggies.
An easy pasta fagioli recipe that will impress your family and friends.
I've been making this soup for about 20 years and it's loved by all. It's pretty simple to make and is delicious.
A good friend of ours brought this soup to us shortly after the birth of our first child. It's very hearty, simple to make, and has a wonderful flavor. An alternate method to prepare this soup is to mix all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours.
An American favorite for years. It's great with Cuban bread. You can make individual bowls with Cuban bread, just cut out the center!
I created this recipe today, combining aspects from similar recipes I had seen on Allrecipes and elsewhere ... and accommodating the contents of my larder. If you like cauliflower, this is a great fall/winter warm-you-up. Portions are an estimate, but it made a small vat of really aromatic soup. Enjoy!
A BBQ spicy chili with lots of beans and meat. Just brown the meat, add the rest, and simmer!
This excellent minestrone is cheap and easy to make. This classic soup of cannellini beans is flavored with rosemary and basil.
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
A good thick soup to warm up a cold day. You can decrease the prep/cook time by making broth and cheese mixture at same time.
Most of the recipes I found don't include the ingredients I placed in mine. This is another new recipe I came up with for a chili cook-off. It went just as fast as the Southwestern style chili did and many people enjoyed it, as well. This, also, is meant to be cooked and then sit overnight.
Soup one can make within an hour that warms you up on a cold day. There are many different varieties of packaged rice dishes you can add, so experiment. Those with a chicken flavor work well, also the broccoli rice combinations.
