One of the points of conflict in my relationship with Baker’s Man is soup. I love soup, and he doesn’t. The one exception to this is chili, so he likes the chili that I have been making for years, and he likes the chili con carne with beans that I made during my 30 days of cans, but those are almost the only soup-like foods that he will eat. In fact, if I suggest soup for dinner, he rolls his eyes or makes a comment that ensures I remember that he isn’t a fan of soup. These five recipes; however, are Baker’s Man approved, so give these man pleasing soups a try, and see if they will satisfy the man in your life, too.
Potato Bacon Soup
This recipe is very easy to prepare. It was created during my 30 days of cans challenge. Baker’s Man even requested it a second time shortly after that challenge ended. One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s made entirely from shelf stable items, so it’s great for those times when you may need to avail yourselves of your emergency food storage. It’s also great to make when you’re trying to make a simple dinner for your family. From start to finish, this soup takes only about 30 minutes.
Chicken Chili Verde
This is another recipe that came from my 30 days of cans. This is basically a white chicken chili, but because I use green chilies in the recipe, I prefer to call it Chicken Chili Verde. This recipe is also made entirely from shelf stable items and is ready in about 45 minutes.
Creamy Corn Chowder
This is one of my mother’s recipes, and we love it. As the name implies, it’s very creamy, rich, and satisfying. I was surprised when Baker’s Man finished off the leftovers the first time he tasted it. I thought he had only eaten the first bowl to be polite to my mother. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that he actually liked it. Score one for the soup lovers in our home.
Chipotle Taco Bean Soup
This is another soup that is very easy to prepare. In fact, I will be forever grateful to the woman who brought this to a craft party. I would never have created my version of this soup if she hadn’t introduced me to hers. Of course, it’s similarity to chili is probably why Baker’s Man likes it since it’s the primary exception to his “no soup” rule.
Clam Chowder has always been an exception to Baker’s Man’s aversion to soup. He loves clam chowder, so I wasn’t surprised when he liked this version made from food storage items. Whether this is served in a bread bowl or in a soup bowl, it’s delicious, and makes a very satisfying meal on a cold night.
