Nine Soup Recipes for National Homemade Soup Day

Nine Soup Recipes for National Homemade Soup Day

Today is National Homemade Soup Day.  In honor of the occasion, I have decided to share nine more of our soup recipes.  Of course, soup is the perfect meal for a Winter’s Day, so I don’t need National Homemade Soup Day to make a pot of delicious, nourishing soup.  Here is our list of Nine Soups Recipes for National Homemade Soup Day.  As is my custom, these soups are listed in the order that they were published on Patty Cake’s Pantry.  Each of these nine soups has a calorie count between 260 and 360 calories, and are loaded with flavor.  Most of them are very easy to prepare, and none require any complicated procedures or hard to find ingredients.

Hoppin” John Soup

Hoppin John Soup is a hearty and delicious New Year's Day treat

Hoppin” John Soup is a great way to start the new year because it contains the required black eyed peas to ensure good health.  At least, that’s the tradition that my Southern family passed on to me, but this soup is so good that it shouldn’t be relegated only to New Year’s Day.  Instead, this soup should be in regular rotation during the cold months of the year.

Navy Bean Soup

Trying a sample of Navy Bean Soup

Navy Bean Soup is one of my favorite soups.  I frequently make this after Easter when we usually eat a ham, and there’s a bone leftover that needs to be used in a recipe.  This recipe is delicious with or without the ham bone, and it’s extremely economical.  You can purchase a 1 pound bag of navy beans for less than $1.50 in most stored.

Chipotle Taco Bean Soup

Chipotle Taco Bean Soup is a very simple and delicious bowl of soup that has a flavor reminiscent of chili.  This soup goes together quickly, and is flavored with a packet of taco seasoning.    It’s one of Baker’s Man’s favorites, and he’s not a soup person.

Our Favorite Pot of Chili

Chili, served piping hot from the stove.

Our Favorite Pot of Chili is something that I learned to make when I was in college.  The original recipe included soy grits and no meat.  It was tasty, but Baker’s Man really missed the meat, so I substituted ground beef, or turkey, for the soy grits.  The end result was delicious, and this recipe for chili became our favorite.  This chili has a soup like consistency.

Creamy Corn Chowder

Rich and creamy corn chowder is comfort food in a bowl.

Creamy Corn Chowder is another of my mother’s recipes that we are in love with.  The soup is rich and creamy, like its name implies, and it’s fairly simple to prepare.  This is another soup that you will want to have in your regular Winter meal rotation.

Chicken Chile Verde

Chicken Chili Verde

Chicken Chile Verde is what some might call a white chicken chili.  There are no tomato products and no chili powder to tint this delectable combination of flavors with any red.  The resultant chili is perfect.  We love this soup because it’s made almost entirely form canned ingredients which makes is simple to prepare.

Navy Bean and Bacon Soup (From Canned Beans)

Navy Bean and Bacon Soup from Canned Beans

Navy Bean and Bacon Soup (From Canned Beans) is a simpler, and faster, version of the Navy Bean Soup recipe listed above.  The flavor profile is similar, but it’s also different.  We love both of these Navy Bean Soup recipes.

Chile con Carne with Beans

Chili con Carne with Beans

Chili con Carne with Beans is a variation on our traditional chili, but this recipe is made entirely from shelf stable, and canned ingredients.  This version of chili doesn’t sacrifice any flavor for the convenience, and the shredded beef makes it seem a little more high brow than chili made from ground beef.

Potato Bacon Soup

Potato Bacon Soup

Potato Bacon Soup is rich and creamy.  This is another recipe made entirely from shelf stable and canned items which makes it a convenient pantry soup.  It can be served pureed, as in the picture above, or it can be served in a more rustic style.  It’s wonderful topped with shredded cheese, green onions, and even a dollop of sour cream.
