I want more soup in my life this winter.

Will you share your favorite homemade soup recipe or at least recommend your favorite one to order out here locally? We all will be better for it this winter. Thanks.

At Sprouts they have mixes. I like the Chicken Enchilada mix. All you do is add shredded chicken and chicken broth, although I usually add some black beans.

The spicy chicken soup at Taste of Korea is amazing. Anything at Pho Cuong is great. Sheesh Mahal has a whole bunch of excellent curries.

It's nothing special as far as recipes go but I occasionally get a craving for the Cream of Mushroom at Gopuram.

Also can't go wrong with any of the pho restaurants around town.

Also the chicken noodle at Don's Alley in Del City.

I am a good cook and I feel I have to say that because this recipe is a fav or anyone who I give it to. and its simple and is embarrassing to share when you can indeed cook. It requires no skill.
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans ROtel
2 cans Chicken broth
2 cans Minestrone soup
1 jar Cheez WHiz
boiled chicken breast shredded
Boil some chicken and shred it. IN a pot add all ingredients but cheez and chicken and get it good and hot. Add chicken and cheese whiz.. after cheez is melted..you are done.. its delicious.. can serve with some tortilla chips if you wish.

Don't know if this qualifies as a soup or a stew, but it's one of our favorite comfort foods during the cold months and it couldn't be simpler.

Ingredients:
1 lb. of lean hamburger (we've also used ground turkey and it's just as good).
1 onion diced
1 seeded and diced Jalapeno pepper (optional)
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can of corn
2 cans of stewed tomatoes
1 can of "Mexican" stewed tomatoes
1 can beef broth
1 pkg of powered ranch dressing mix
1 pkg of taco seasoning

Begin cooking onion and jalapeno to soften, then add hamburger meat and cook until browned, then drain. Put all ingredients in a large pot and cook nearly to boiling, then lower the heat to simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes. Serve with a side of corn bread and your choice of hot sauce (Cholula or Frank's Red Hot do it for me).

They have hot soup at the soup stand. Ask them at the deli station and they will sell you full pouches of the soup to take home. Sometimes the soup at the stand gets skimmed for the good stuff because you ladel it into your own container. But the pouch has all the good stuff in the right proportions.its also cheaper in the pouch.

Don't hear meany speak of it, but the cream of mushroom soup at Paseo Grill is beyond incredibly good. A former chef there told me how to make it. I can't remember much of it, but it was really complicated and labor intensive. Worth every penny.

Have had that soup and agree it is very good.... Then again I haven't had anything at Paseo Grill that wasn't good.

I made this this afternoon. Good stuff! Letting it simmer a bit to thicken and break down the tomatoes a some more. Reminds me of a Boy Scout favorite from the 1970's called Gerst Chili (The Gerst Family had been involved in that troop for nearly fifty years) from when we had winter camping trips. You've got the basic framework here, but the cook was free to "personalize" his batch, so it was rarely exactly the same.
Already thinking about embellishments for the next batch.

I really like clam chowder and Panera's is really good. I buy a quart and freeze it in eight ounce containers.

Glad you like it. I understand about the longer simmering, but if you're in a hurry, it's not bad either. My favorite is having the leftovers the next day. I think it's even better then.

The chili recipe in my grandmother's Better Homes and Gardens cookbook (the red and white checkered cookbook. Every grandmother has one) never fails.

Our favorite "going out" winter meal in the winter is Pho (from any one of the many restaurants in town) and ramen from Tamashii Ramen downtown OKC (and soon to be Edmond).

As for making soup - sorry, I don't know any recipes off-hand, but ever since the wife discovered the Instant Pot, she has been a soup and chili making maniac. The Instant Pot is incredible in how fast you can make really good homemade soups that used to take all day.

I dunno, maybe if I tried it I'd join the religion surrounding it too, but I'm a bit dubious of the Instant Pot when it comes to soups, stews, and chilis. One of the ingredients to all three of these is time. Are there some soups that can be made quickly? Sure. Are there some chilis? Eh, maybe, but none I'd want to eat. Stews? It's right there in the name, it needs to stew. Instant Pot? No thanks, pass the slow cooker.

We don't do our recipes in a slow cooker, but they may be translatable to that, you'd have to figure out your own timing....

My all time favorite soup is chicken tortilla soup. I am a big fan of Charleston's and Red Rock. In a pinch Uptown Grocer is pretty decent if you get it fresh. Does anyone else have any chicken tortilla soup suggestions?

The moment the wife proved you could make an incredible pot roast with all the veggies and do it in an Instant Pot in a hour - I was sold. Tasted as good or better than a pot roast that slow cooked for 8 hours. Best part is she could put it on a 5pm and we were heating by 6pm. As for soups and chilis - incredible. The pressure takes the place of the time.

I don't really get the fervor over the Instant Pot. I already have an electric pressure cooker. It's great and I would recommend one to anyone, but what does the Instant Pot do that's so special? I'm guessing it's just a trendy brand of electric pressure cooker.

For those of us that can't cook, the rice button, brown rice, beans, and even more that I can't name make it so much easier.

My wife grew up in New Mexico, so we are big fans of the Green Chile Kitchen in Yukon. There, we often get the green chile stew. It comes as a cup ($6) or a bowl ($10). The "cup" size is actually a decent-sized bowl, so it can be a meal in itself, especially if you have my minimal restraint when it comes to the chips & queso. You can add chicken or pork if you wish (I love the flavor of the pork). It is particularly satisfying on a cold evening.
