Souper Dinners!

Welcome to this week's Friday's Five Favorites

When it's cold outside a bowl of soup is just what your family needs to feel warm all over!  I really enjoy a bowl of hearty homemade soup for dinner.  Served with cornbread or bread sticks and you got a great tasting, filling meal.  Most soups are full of vegetables so they're good for you.  Here are some favorites, starting with a new recipe.

1. Homemade chili  O.K. You might not call chili a soup, but it's served in a bowl and that's good enough for me.  Homemade is sooo much better than that from a can.

1 lbs. ground beef
1 medium onion
1 can tomato sauce (15 ounce)
2 cans beans (15 ounce each) with liquid (I used 1 can pinto beans and 1 can small red beans)
1/2 diced green pepper
1/4 cup diced celery (1 stalk)
1 can tomatoes (14 ounce)
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain off fat. In large pot, combine the beef and all the ingredients. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Stir often to keep from scorching on the bottom. Or use a slow cooker, 8 hours on low 4 hours on high.

2. Tortilla Soup This is a really quick soup that will please your hungry family. Just open some cans! For recipe go here.

3. Minestrone Soup This minestrone is better than Olive Garden's, I'm not kidding. This recipe makes a lot, enough to share or freeze. If freezing don't add the pasta till you heat it to serve.

4. Broccoli Cheese Soup Creamy, cheesy, yummy need I say more? This is family favorite. For recipe go here.

5. Cream of Wild Rice Soup This is a flavorful, creamy soup, with a yummy chewiness of wild rice and a surprise crunch from the almonds. For recipe go here.
