We love homemade soups at our house and it’s not uncommon for us to enjoy them several times a week during the fall, winter and spring months. Not only are soups delicious and many times comfort food, they also are inexpensive and a great way to stretch your grocery budget, too.
In celebration of January being National Soup Month, I thought it would be fun to share our 12 favorite soup recipes with you! So here they are, in no particular order.
12 Favorite & Easy Soup Recipes
1. Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup
A great meatless option that is packed full of veggies and can be made in the crock-pot or the stove-top.
2. Cream Cheese Potato Soup (with ham)
Creamy, full of flavor and so delicious! I love the unexpected flavor that the cream cheese gives this soup.
3. Salsa Chicken Soup
This soup is kind of a chicken version of Taco Soup. It’s not a “pretty” soup by any means, but it is super quick to throw together and as a result is one of my go-to meals when I am pushed for time. It’s also delicious enough that I frequently serve it to guests, too!
4. Hearty Chili Mac
This soup is perfect comfort food and very filling. It is a bit on the spicy side though, and I usually cut back the chili powder to just 1 ½ Tbsp.
6. Creamy White Chili
This satisfying soup is quick to make and always a hit! I frequently get requests for the recipe when I serve it to guests.
7. Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup
Something about this soup just speaks cozy to me. It’s one of those recipes that is perfect to enjoy when it’s cold and blustery out. To lower the cost a bit, I replace the evaporated milk with regular milk and we think it is still delicious!
8. Taco Soup
Taco soup is such a classic and it always just hits the spot! Because it is so delicious, filling and easy to make, it’s perfect for serving to large groups too. Oh, and it freezes well, so go ahead and make extra!
9. Country Potato Soup
My husband who isn’t a potato soup fan, declared this version to be “pretty good”! I like that it is creamy and full of flavor, while being inexpensive too!
10. Cheeseburger Soup
You can’t go wrong with this cheesy soup. It’s a favorite with the whole family!
11. French Onion Soup
Ah, I absolutely love me some French Onion Soup! Funny thing is, I’m not a huge onion fan, and so for years I assumed that I wouldn’t like this soup. There’s just something about the rich broth combined with chewy bread and gooey cheese that is simply more-ish!
12. Curried Chicken and Rice Soup
This comforting soup is yummy and I love the warmth that the curry gives to it. I usually up the amount of curry powder and use just plain milk in place of the evaporated milk and half and half.
