fall & soup.

I love fall...

and I really LOVE fall soups!

To make it more fun for the kids I serve it in bread bowls! Just grab a loaf of french bread (or whatever your favorite with soup is) and cut it into "bowls". Fill with your favorite soup or chili.

I get 3-4 bowls per loaf and the kids love to "eat their bowl"!

And I love how easy it is :)

This one is really good in a bread bowl!

Anyone have some {easy} soup recipes to share? I need some new ones, please share!

Here's our SOUPer easy go to fall soup. It's ideal for nights when there are 359 things going on:

Potato Corn Chowder
1 jar of real bacon bits (or 6 slices of crumbled cooked bacon)
1 (10 oz.) can Cream of Potato Soup
1 (16 oz.) can of cream style corn
2 cups of light cream
2 cans dices potatoes (drained)
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in saucepan or crock pot. Add bacon and heat slowly to avoid scorching.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Also, your soup picture looks DELICIOUS!! I'm going to have to try the homemade bread bowls soon!

Wow! Looks great! Can you post the recipe for that one in the picture?

This one is super easy just open a bunch of cans and it's super good!

2 lbs. ground beef, (seasoned with onion powder, lawreys garlic salt, & pepper. Keep smashing and stirring so meat is tiny. Add 1/2 cup water to meat that will help it cook down.

1 small -med red onion diced (cook with meat)

When thoroughly cooked add:

1 regular size can seasoned black beans (if you can find them) they say: "seasoned"

1 regular size can black beans

1 can diced petite cut tomatoes

1 can rotel (Green chiles/tomatoes) (not the JalapeƱo unless you want it hot)

1 small can tomato sauce (add TBS water to rinse bottom of can)

1 can cream corn

1 can low sodium beef broth

1 pkg. Durkee Enchilada Sauce Packet (dry)

1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Packet (dry)

1 TBS parsley flakes


Add water if you want it "soupier".

Garnish with sour cream, cheese, red onion and crushed corn chips.

Oooo Erin I am loving that idea, my kids love bread.
Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day to explain what funnel cakes were, they sound delicious.
I feel I need to explain, I have been following your blog since I bought a piece of jewellery from you, I was the one in Australia who wanted it for my birthday. I wear it every day, and love it, and get many wonderful comments about it.
If I could ask a small favour of you when you have a minute, please pop back over to my blog and read my story about a dear friend. Off to buy bread roll bowls for dinner! Am thinking would work well with taco mix.

Angela said...

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I just posted a soup recipe on my blog. You can check it out here... good!

Sanna said...

Erin, I received my necklace today and I totally love it. I means a lot to me and I am pretty happy with it.

I put photos and a post on my blog, so if you like to, check it out.

Again, thanks a lot.

Let's eat together, mkay? ;-) Soup, bread, chocolate, coffee... We'll talk pictures and blogging and stamping, while the kids run wild.

Stuffed Cabbage Soup

1 1/2 lb. ground beef & pork
2 tsp Paprika
salt & pepper to taste
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3/4 carrots, chopped (I used matchstick and roughly chopped)
1 lb. thinly sliced green cabbage
1 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 can (14.5 oz?) tomato sauce
1 can (49.5 oz) chicken broth
1 cup white rice (not instant)
3 tbsp chopped fresh dill

Brown & drain meat. Add to stock pot with onion, carrot, garlic, salt, pepper & paprika. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add cabbage to wilt. Cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, sauce & broth. Raise heat & bring to a boil. Add rice. Reduce heat and simmer. Cook for 16-18 minutes, until rice is tender. Stir in dill.

Please note, if you don't eat it right away, the rice absorbs a lot of the broth, but it's still plenty tasty...just has more of a stew consistency vs. soup.
