    We have had the most torrential rains for the last few days. I made some potato soup tonight but I need ideas for something new. So, can you please share your favorite soup recipe for me?

    It's been chilly and rainy here so I made Italian Wedding Soup--it really hit the spot.
    Be careful in NC-I was seeing some scarey pics on tv from your area.

    I made alphabet vegetable soup a couple of days ago. Easy. Tomato or vegetable juice, onions, celery, carrots, all squashes, bell peppers, browned beef of some sort (optional), bouillon or broth. Use veggies you have on hand. It doesn't matter. I used low sodium everything if it was canned. If you're not using the meat, throw in a can of rinsed beans for the protein. Or shave some parmesan cheese on top.

    Taco Soup Recipe
    Mix together:

    2 cans of Ranch Style Beans (one with jalapeno peppers if you want it spicier)
    1 lb ground beef, cook and drained
    1 can whole kernel corn
    1 can cream style corn
    1 can yellow hominy
    2 cans Rotel tomatoes
    1 package taco seasoning
    1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (dry)
    about 1 1/2 to 2 cups water

    Let simmer for about an hour to mix the flavors. Serve with sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips.....anything you want.

    There are many versions of Mexican/Taco Soups. All of them are good. I love this soup. The nice thing about it is you only have to cook the hamburger meat. Everything else is in cans.

    Here's one of our favorite soups:


    3 cups chicken broth
    1–2 cups leftover chicken, or cook up some boneless chicken
    1-1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, finely minced
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 carrot, finely chopped
    Broccoli florets (as as much as you like... we add lots)
    3/4–1 lb mushrooms, sliced (may use simple buttons or exotic)
    1 cup milk or light cream (depends on how creamy you like your soups)
    Shredded mozzarella for topping

    In large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Stir in chunks of cooked chicken, oregano and pepper. Add rice and reduce heat.

    Meanwhile heat olive oil in pan over medium heat and sauté garlic, onion, carrot and mushrooms until tender. Transfer this to the broth mixture.

    Add broccoli florets

    Stir in milk or light cream and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until rice and vegetables are cook

    Serve in bowl and top with shredded mozzarella.

    Quick and easy rolls to accompany soup:
    1 or 2 cans of Pillsbury French Bread (depending on number of people eating), and slice into approximately 3-inch chunks. Place on pan and bake at temp listed on can... center rack of oven until they begin to turn golden. Depending on your oven, usually 8–12 minutes. Serve hot with soup. Enjoy!

    1 lb. ground beef
    4 cups cubed potatoes
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 (15 oz.) Tomato Sauce
    4 cups water
    2 teasp salt
    1&1/2 teasp pepper
    1/2 to 1 teasp hot pepper sauce

    In a Dutch oven or large kettle, brown ground beef. Drain. Add potatoes, onion & tomato sauce. Stir in water, salt, pepper & hot pepper sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender & the soup has slightly thickened. So good on a cold day.

    NOTE: If I am cooking this soup for company, I omit the hot sauce and just set the bottle on the table for anyone who wants to use it.
