One of Emeril Lagasse's favorites. This is a soup his mom would always cook. He describes it as a stick-to-your-ribs soup. Enjoy!
*Note: the dried beans need to soak for at least 8 hours. You could do that overnight* (For a quick soak, bring the beans and water to a boil over high heat and cook for 2 minutes at the boil, then remove from the heat and allow to stand for 1 hour. Drain.)
Prep time does not include soaking the beans.
I found this fantastic recipe in a cookbook simply called "The Vegetarian Cookbook". It is creamy and delicious. We usually like food that is super flavored and spicy, but this is delicious, simple comfort food. No crazy spices or herbs, but yummy! I'm pretty sure that between just my BF and I, we ate almost the entire pot in one sitting. It really is that good. Hope you agree! (As a helpful note, I once heard on the Food Network, that you should never cook with a wine that you are not wiling to drink.)
If you like Chili , and you like sweet and sour ,,, You,ll love this It,s a combination of both A must try .
a recipe I came up with many years ago, ( In my creative years )
Tip:: it may dry out as baking if so you may need to add a little water 1/2 cup or so
I find as I do each step I add it right into a roasting pan to save time
This soup is absolutely delicious! A family favorite, my 4 year old son calls it "Meaty Meatball Yummy Soup". It's packed with healthy veggies, which you can vary according to your family's taste. Don't let the long ingredient list fool you - it is simple and quick to prepare with ingredients you usually have on hand. You can substitute fresh vegetables for the canned; I created this in winter when I had more canned and frozen items on hand than fresh. Leave the meatballs out if you are short on time or want to skip the meat. You can also make the meatballs in advance and freeze them to add later. We like to serve this with a fresh green salad and good multi grain bread.
I got this recipe out of Southern Living Magazine. It's a very mild chili with beans that was a hit with my kids. Very easy to make, and is listed as a Tailgate party Chili. Don't fret about the beer in the recipe, it cooks off and the kids don't even notice it. Since I'm from Texas, I used Shiner Bock ,which added a hint of flavor.
From Real Simple magazine, Fake it, Don't Make it section, Nov. 2003. Canned black beans, salsa, sour cream and canned chicken broth-and Lime and dry sherry are optional. OK to freeze since it reheats beautifully.
