    I've been poking through last winter's posts, and there's a lentil soup thread here and a stuffed pepper soup thread there... but no one thread with a bunch of soup recipes all together.

    So what are your favorite soup recipes? Do you have a house specialty?

    This is the recipe I use every winter and it is hearty and delicious. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/p...ipe/index.html

    As a matter of fact I bought the ingredients to fix a huge pot just this morning. I usually add a few more vegetables in than the recipe calls for because I like a more hearty "stoup" instead of a soup and I use the boneless roast. I usually keep enough out for a couple of meals for my husband and myself and freeze the rest.

    The spice list looks like a lot but believe me...it's worth it! I fix a huge pot when I visit my son and his family so they can freeze it too. It makes your house smell SO good while it's cooking!!

    Believe me, I saw it, Loretta - thanks! I read the entire chili thread - it's what inspired this soup thread. I love chili, but sometimes I want soups/stews other than chilis. I eat chili altogether too much as it is.

    My favorite is listed below and was printed in the local newspaper. I don't really care for hot spices so I seed the jalapeno and can't really taste it at all. So this is really perfect for those who enjoy MILD spicyness. Seems so simple with the few ingredients but the flavor is wonderful. I serve mine with tortilla chips or cornbread. Last time I made it I threw in a few smoked ham hocks instead of the bacon and it was really meaty and had great flavor! Freezes beautifully too.

    Herrera's Bean Soup (from Herrera's Restaurant in Dallas, Texas)

    1 lb. pinto beans, rinse, pick over, and soak overnight
    4-6 slices bacon, chopped
    1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 jalapeno, chopped (if you don't like heat, seed it)
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    fresh cilantro, chopped (1/4 of a bunch)
    4 cans chicken broth
    2 1/2 cans water
    salt and pepper to taste

    Sautee bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and drain. Leave a little of the bacon grease in the pan and saute the onion, peppers, and garlic until tender. Pour everything into a large stew pot and simmer until beans are tender. Turn off heat and stir, mashing some of the beans against the side of the pot.

    I make a chicken and rice soup for Jim sometimes. No real recipe. I just throw in a bay leaf while the chicken is boiling and some diced celery. We love it on cold days.

    Loretta, I bet that popcorn is good in tomato soup. I like to put cheeze-its in mine. YUM!
    I've never made homemade tomato soup. That's for the quick and easy recipe!

    One of my favorite winter soups is the kitchen sink type.
    I keep a large plastic container in the freezer. Little scraps of meat go in, a tablespoon of this leftover vegetable a cup of another... When the container is full, I dump it into a soup pot add some more meat if needed, vegetables, potatoes, maybe tomato sauce and seasonings... It is different each time and it is even better the next day!!!
    I have even thrown in leftover noodle dishes into the container... When it all gets mixed together in the soup pot it just seems to blend together so nicely!!!

    i love beef and cabbage soups. if you like it soupier, add more liquid. i like it thicker. i add a blop of sour cream just before i serve it, in the hungarian manner. i also serve cheater biscuits.

    CABBAGE AND BEEF SOUP
    1 lb. ground lean beef
    1/4 tsp. garlic powder
    2 celery stalks, chopped
    1/2 med. head cabbage, chopped (i slice about 1/3") a smiley??
    1 (28 oz.) can tomatoes, chopped & liquid reserved (i use diced and squish in
    my hands)
    1 tomato can of water (sometimes less, start less)
    Chopped fresh parsley (flat kind)
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    1 (16 oz.) can kidney beans
    4 beef bouillon cubes
    In a Dutch oven, brown beef. Add all remaining ingredients except parsley; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 1 hour. (here's where i taste for salt) Garnish with parsley. Yield 3 quarts. (serve with sour cream) If cooking for two, soup can be frozen in serving size portions to enjoy months later.
