I returned from Houston last night just in time to sit down to supper with my family! It isn’t really fall there (yet!) but it sure is here in Bama, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite soup and stew recipes with you today.
If you’re on Facebook, I sure would appreciate it if you’d click that little “like” button above! If you’re an email subscriber and received this in your inbox, please forward it to any friends you think might enjoy Southern Plate! Have a wonderful Wednesday 🙂
BBQ Joint Stew (Commonly Called Brunswick Stew)
At the first sign of chill in the air, BBQ joints around here start cranking out this delicious stew. It helps them use up any leftover shredded pork and chicken that they may have. By mixing in their signature bbq sauce (my No. 5 signature bbq sauce recipe is in my cookbook in case you need one) and whatever vegetables they have on hand they can turn out a flavorful and filling stew unlike any other.
My Favorite Potato Soup
Includes lots of ideas to customize this classic and make it your own!
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Full of flavor thanks to the Enchilada sauce, this soup is a cinch to throw together!
Christy’s Slow Cooker Chili
Any southerner worth their salt has a great chili recipe, preferably a signature one. This is mine 🙂
Ground Beef Stew (with a secret!)
Here is a fuss free, economical, and delicious beef stew to warm you from the inside out. I just love stew weather! To me, this tastes a lot like Cracker Barrel’s Vegetable Beef Stew, but with more goodies inside!
Our Family’s Chicken Stew Recipe
This stuff is good, you really need to make it!
Simple Tomato Soup
With a few ingredients and a few minutes, you can have an outstanding tomato soup. Can you say Grilled Cheese?
Shortcut Senate Bean Soup
Oh my goodness is this ever good. Warm, soothing, filling, and with shortcuts to save time!
Tina’s Corn Chowder
This corn chowder is a great meal for vegetarians. Simply substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth and you’re off to the races!
Chicken Noodle Soup
This soup is the absolute favorite of my son and all of my nephews!
“Free Soup” – Dieter’s Best Friend!
This recipe is one my mother and I have used for over twenty years, and we still love it. Many diets have “free” vegetables, which are basically vegetables that are allowed without restriction. What this soup does is combine those vegetables in with a richly flavored broth and serves them up as the perfect anytime dish to fight off the munchies, serve as a quick and easy lunch, or a filling side dish with your evening meal.
Tomato-less Rustic Beef Stew
I worked up this recipe especially for my Aunt Sue, who makes the worlds best pound cake but can’t eat tomatoes. How are those two related? Well, beyond me just putting them in a sentence together I reckon that’s about it, but you can get her pound cake recipe in my cookbook ~winks~.
Spaghetti Lover’s Soup
So if you love Spaghetti…
World’s Easiest Supper – Nuff Said! 🙂
If you’ve made any of these recipes I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
Which of these recipes is your family’s favorite?
(I’m trying to decide which one I want to make for supper!)
My Facebook Good Morning Post for the day (I hope you’ll join us on the Southern Plate Facebook Family Page soon!)
”We can always be a little nicer. We can smile a little bigger and more often, instead of passing by folks on the street quietly we can greet them with “Good Mornin”. We can be the bigger, nicer person to the persistent grump at work. In time, you’ll be amazed at the people you can soften through the simplest kindnesses but you’ll be even more amazed to find that each little act removes another brick over a huge fountain of joy within you. Eventually, you’ll have a geyser.” ~Christy
P. S. Good Morning!
Nothing says fall better than soup. I love fall and a bowl of soup with fresh bread is my families favorite comfort food. We especially like your potato soup but I have made your taco soup, chili, and corn chowder and we have enjoyed every one of them. I have two of your cookbooks and love every recipe I’ve tried. Thank you Christy
My email has changed & I forgot to let you know. I’ve missed you. Please come back. Thanks. I am a fellow grad of UNA, except it was away before your time (1958).
Christy, I cooked your chicken stew a few weeks ago and it was the best chicken stew ever. I was skeptical about the sugar, but it just added something fantastic. Always enjoy your recipes
Thank you so much Becky!! I am so glad you liked the chicken stew!!
Why do u add ranch mix, to the taco soup? Does it do something for the taste or recipe! Thanks!
It adds a WONDERFUL depth of flavor. I hope you get to try it soon! I also add it to my vegetable soup 🙂
There are three we love! Potato soup, taco soup, and hamburger stew. We haven’t tried any of the others yet but plan to this fall. I love the short cuts while still having the rich flavor of your recipes!
