I am a real fan of making soups/stews and then freezing them for later use. This is a prize-winning recipe from a recent Better Homes & Gardens magazine and I am going to make it next time I'm into one of my marathon cooking days.
My sister fixed this for my and husband and I and we loved it. The recipe came from Voyageur's wild rice. What I like about this soup is that it doesn't have alot of spices in it where you can't taste the vegetables and ham. I put the vegetables in my food processor which saves alot of time. This recipe makes alot of soup. I cut the recipe in half when I make it. This is an easy and delicious soup for on a cold winters day. A nice loaf of bread and you've got a great lunch!
A flavorful, thick soup that is perfect with some crusty bread and a nice warm fire. My daughter, who is 1 1/2, gobbles this up! Tip: If you cook the squash beforehand, you can make the soup in about an hour.
I'm getting tired of seeing the so-called tortilla soup recipes running around that are nothing but a glorified chicken soup with tortillas added. Here's the real McCoy. Similar to the recipe at Houston's restaurant (modified, of course, to suit my tastes)
For a beef version check out my recipe #261711.
A full-meal soup as delicious as the restaurant classic. And a great way to use your leftover pot roast or oven-roasted beef and not waste the drippings. Its a meal in a bowl but a green salad and some hearty bread are welcome additions if you want them.
Easy to make, delicious, and good for you. I don't even like carrots and I would happily eat a bowl or two. For a healthier version, leave out the cream (It still tastes fantastic, even without it). Feel free to use the bagged carrots sticks to cut down on prep time.
