Top 5 Soup Recipes That Taste Amazing

Cooler weather begs for warm and comforting soups and stews. I would dare say that eating a bowl of soup is one of my favorite things to eat in the fall and winter. Honestly, I eat soup year-round, but a cold, rainy day cries out for a bowl full. My Top 5 Soup Recipes are favorites at my house.

Most soups are very easy to prepare and can usually be thrown together, placed in the slow cooker and left to simmer all day. There’s nothing quite like coming home in the evening to the enticing aroma of the soup. Gosh, now I’m craving some soup. 

Here are my top 5 soup recipes.  Click on the name of the soup to get the recipes.

Top 5 Soup Recipes

1.  Quick & Easy Potato Soup 

Easy Baked Potato Soup

You won’t believe how easy this soup is to make – no potato peeling involved!  

And I always get rave reviews when I serve it. Garnish with chopped chives, bacon, cheese or whatever your heart desires.  I usually omit the cheese and serve it with homemade pimento cheese sandwiches on pumpernickel bread.  It’s the perfect meal!

2.  Slow Cooker Pasta e Fagioli 

Pasta e Fagioli

This is a hearty soup and another fave of mine!  At the last minute, cook the pasta and stir it in.  You won’t have soggy, overcooked pasta!  I usually serve it with cornbread.

3.  Spanish Sausage Sweet Potato Stew


4.  Black Bean Chili (meatless)

Bowl of Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

I probably eat this soup more than any other. And I probably never make it the same way twice!  

Don’t be afraid to add to or take away. It’s so good garnished with sour cream and cheese and diced avocado. But, truthfully, I usually eat it unadorned. It doesn’t need garnishes and I save the extra calories. You’ll find even more of my favorite meatless soups when you click on the recipe.

5.  Grandma Fisher’s Brunswick Stew

Grandma's Brunswick Stew

Brunswick Stew is a southern tradition! And no two southern recipes are alike.  

I once ate at a restaurant that a southern magazine had declared to have “the best Brunswick Stew in the south.” They were badly mistaken. My grandma has the best Brunswick Stew in the south!   

Brunswick Stew is usually served with a shredded pork barbecue sandwich. Mustard, vinegar or ketchup-based?  That’s a heated discussion for another day!

Need a tasty sandwich to go along with your soup?  Try this Reuben. It’s really good!

        We’ve been feeling it in the mornings, though it’s usually gone by 10 a.m. here in Dallas. I’m looking forward to the days where I can walk the dog at all hours and the weather be cool and refreshing whenever I walk out the door. Fingers crossed it happens soon for us both!

  17. This soups look so yummy! Pinning for the winter.

  18. I love, love, love soup. A couple of weeks ago I had #soupweek on Hot Momma’s Kitchen Chaos where I made a Pasta e Fagoili e Zucchini in the slow cooker. I just couldn’t help adding zucchini to one of my favorite soups – right at the end of summer and the start of fall when zucchini is still in season and soup is just coming into vogue! Did I mention that I LOVE soup? I’ve been craving it lately and I will definately have to give one or two of these recipes a try, the Black Bean Chili would be great to share with my daughter who doesn’t eat meat, and the cream of cauliflower sounds DELISH! Thanks so much for sharing on The Yuck Stops Here this week! See you next Tuesday. HUGS

  19. Oh, all of these look so good, Alli! I’ve never had Cream of Cauliflower soup, though – I’ll have to try that one! Thanks for linking up with us over at the #homematters link party! We hope to see you again this coming Wednesday 🙂

  20. One thing I have failed to learn is never check out your website hungry. Now I’m hangry. Anyway, I haven’t really tried cream of cauliflower before but that looks and sounds delicious. I might give that a try someday.
