Favorite Fall Soups

One of my favorite things about the arrival of fall is making soups and stews. I love spending a day in the kitchen preparing food for the busy week, so on Sunday afternoons I will cook a large pot of soup that I can eat throughout the week for lunches. Soups are generally easy to make – once you combine all of the ingredients it can simmer away allowing you to tend to other things.

I try to make a different kind of soup every week, but I do have my favorites that I make more often.

MECC chicken corn chowder

This Chicken Corn Chowder is hearty enough to be a meal. Click on the link for the recipe and a trick for quickly shredding chicken.




And one more chowder without chicken – Potato Corn Chowder with Bacon, because bacon makes everything better. Or for a completely vegetarian chowder, I turn to this Cheesy Vegetable Chowder.


MECC fire roasted tomato soupThere is nothing more comforting than a grilled cheese sandwich paired with a hot bowl of tomato soup. This Fire Roasted Tomato Soup takes it to the next level.



MECC white bean and spinach soup



A soup that is both healthy and hearty is what this White Bean and Spinach Soup with Brown Rice is.





And finally, I love Mexican food so I created this Spicy Taco Soup. The spicyMECC spicy taco soup
peppers, tangy tomatoes and bright lime juice all come together in a perfect bowl.
