Chili Blanco Especial

65

My mom has been making this soup, from the fantastic Creme de Colorado cookbook, for ages. I have the recipe hand-written on a recipe card from her when I went to seminary, and at the time I was a little shocked to discover how expensive white pepper was/is. It was worth it in this soup, […]

Chipotle Chicken Soup

66

What do you do when you unexpectedly end up with a Costco box of tomatoes? When you have a soup blog and a crowd of people for whom you make soup (and chips, salsa and margaritas) every Friday evening (click here for more info), you decide to make those tomatoes into soup! This is a […]

Martha Stewart’s Chicken Posole

Best French Onion Soup

62

My husband LOVES French Onion soup.  I can’t tell you how many times he’s told me of his love for French Onion Soup.  What is it about the ingenious combination of these simple ingredients?  Is it the crusty cheese melted over crusty bread?  Is it the melt-in-your-mouth onions?  Is it the sweet-yet-savory flavor of the […]

Asian Chicken and Chili Soup

72

Sorry, friends; JR took our camera to work, so instead of a picture of this soup, you get a picture of an Asian rice field.  I guess you get what you pay for. What you DO get [totally free, I might add], if you can use your imagination and picture it in your mind, is […]
