Soup Recipes

I've been on a soup kick lately - it has tasted so good, hearty and comforting - plus is supremely easy with the Crock Pot! Both of these were well received by all of us - yay!

 Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
Started out with this recipe. Here's what I did:

2 c. boiled chicken breasts, cut up (from freezer)
7 c. chicken broth made from bouillion
2 recipes homemade cream soup with only 2 c. water
1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 c. onion
1 c. carrot

Added in egg noodles just before serving. Cooked on high in crock pot for about 3 hours. Delicious, though not creamy as I had expected.

Creamy Corn Chowder (just made up from what I had on hand!)

1 can corn, drained
1 tsp. each salt and pepper
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. minced onion (I was out of fresh, but that would be good too!)
sliced carrots
five red potatoes, cubed
1 can evaporated milk
five slices bacon, cooked and cut up
4 c. chicken broth
2 Tbsp. onion

Cook on low in the Crock Pot all day and serve with shredded cheese and yummy rolls or grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum!

What kinds of soups do you like to make?

Mmmm we love soup! I love to make potato soup and sometimes add ground beef and it is a cheeseburger type of soup. Chicken and dumplings is one of our fav's too. Btw...If you have Kroger in your town they are having a sale on potatoes (Tes-Wed) a 10 pound bag for $1.68!!! Great for soups and stews.
I would love the cream soup base recipe.

That is so funny you made creamy chicken noodle soup, because I just made it last week for the first time. It was a different recipe than yours, and though not bad, it needed more seasoning.

We are definately a soup family. Some of our favorites are french onion, potato, beef barley, vegetable, broccoli cheese, and easy autumn soup.
How creative that you made up a soup from what you had on hand. I often tweak recipes, but I don't think I've ever created one.
