Cool weather is here & I'm looking for new recipes.
Anyone have good ones for soups, stews & one-dish meals?

My quick and easy, is a good old pot of Chili. I usually start out with the French's Chili-O mix and go from there. I make a mean Split Pea too. Instead of Hamhocks(Sorry Pigling)I use smoked Turkey wings and a can of chicken Broth, Bay leaf, lots of Garlic, a few carrots and potatoes, a dash of red pepper flakes and some black pepper. I learned a long time ago to not use the blender to puree hot food. Yep, Split Pea all over the kitchen. Now I use one of those hand blenders, you can put right in the pot. A friend of mine, likes to put a dab of sour cream on top of each serving of her Split Pea Soup. As good as these two soups are, Chicken Veggie is probably the number one around here.

Good topic! I love soups - I made Chicken Tortilla Soup this past weekend. Super easy:

chicken broth (I used 2 cartons)
a pkg taco seasoning
can Rotel
can corn
can pintos
can black beans
large can chopped tomatoes
couple of chicken breasts (cooked and cut up or use leftover)
large chopped onion
ground cumin to taste
salt & pepper
chopped cilantro

Put it all in a pot and cook an hour or so to blend the flavors. Like most soups you can add/take away whatever!! Serve over tortilla chips - top with grated cheese, sour cream, avocado or whatever you like!!!

General directions - adjust to your preference.

Here's my go-to dish that has many modifications.

Cook a pot of rice using broth instead of water
Saute celery, onions, garlic, mushrooms - you choose amounts
Add a can of diced tomatoes (the bigger one) and a can of drained beans (we like chick peas and I often have some cooked, but if not, a can is good)
Add a package of frozen spinach (thaw first)
If you have and/or want meat, ground beef or ground turkey are both really good in this.
If you have it around, a half cup to a full cup of wine is nice.

Either toss the whole thing in a big mixing bowl first, or layer it in a casserole dish, toss it all in the oven for half an hour or so and it is done.

One day I made some millet that had been sitting around and it is too soft to mix in, so I just carefully put it on top of the stuff in the frying pan, added a bit of cheese and it was more like a shepherd's pie.

Sometimes I do oregano and basil for flavour, sometimes thyme, sometimes chili. Sometimes I add some frozen corn or peas if I don't have spinach. It is TNT pattern with multiple variations!

I did homemade loaded baked potato soup for dinner tonight...double batch so hubby could take some for lunch tomorrow and so that I could also have some for lunch tomorrow...yes, it's THAT good. I will get the original recipe here tomorrow and will note the changes that I made to it as well.

Cream of Wild Rice and Mushroom soup is DELICIOUS. I just made it this evening. For those who aren't crazy about mushrooms, I put the mushrooms through the shredding blade of my food processor. It then gives the mushroom flavor, but a more meaty texture.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I love soups. Cook 1 time, eat 3 meals! Gotta love that.

Mom to 5: we love turkey soup & always make it after Thanksgiving
Jtink: you know I've never had split pea soup, will give it a try
PeggyL: your tortilla soup is very similar to my black bean soup
Tourist: your dish sounds good!
Larisa: yes, we love potato soup too.
Cathy: that mushroom soup sounds delicious!

Do you like lamb stew? It is one of DH favorite. Also one of my favorites that DH makes me for me when I do not feel well is Avelemon chicken soup (Greek style chicken rice soup). If you would like I will post the recipes for you.

Heres our family favorite, which I make about every l0 days.

Take all leftovers, anything else that is not going to be ate, or anything thats been in the cupboards too long. Throw in anything else that looks good.. bring to a boil then simmer till done. Your choice of adding chicken broth or tomato sauce.
