5 Soups To Try This Winter

04 December 2018

I don't love cooking, but I do love a cozy, warm dinner that took VERY little effort. And can be made all in one pot. And sneaks in vegetables so the kids (and me, too, let's be honest) don't even notice.

Really, I could have called this post "let's get lazy with cooking in December" because that's actuallyyyy what this post is about: minimal effort to make something yummy.

Here are 5 soups to make this winter: 
  1. My friend Christina's slow cooker white chicken chili: I skip the green chiles, which make it not spicy at ALL and both my kids DEVOUR this. (Devin and I add sriracha or salsa to make our individual bowls have a little more kick to it.) Have you seen me talk about this in my Instagram stories multiple times? Because that's how often I make it and how much we all love it. 

  2. Creamy chicken and potato soup: I've never blogged my exact recipe, but you add 3 raw chicken breasts, 2 cups half and half, 1 can chicken broth, 3 lbs of chopped potatoes, and ANY vegetables you want (carrots, peas, celery, peppers, etc.!). Season with 2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (on low so the half and half doesn't curdle), and shred the chicken before serving. SO easy and my absolute favorite!

  3. My SUPER easy crock pot chili: you can always make it more spicy by adding more chili powder OR adding jalapenos, if you're really feeling wild. 😉 

  4. Curry butternut squash soup, which I blogged about here. Admittedly, my photos aren't great since the soup came out thicker than I hoped, but I've updated the recipe to include the right amount of liquid (and should probably re-do the photos, too!). My friend told me about curry squash soup, and we brainstormed a recipe with real-ish measurements together!

  5. This chicken tortellini soup looks amazing, and is on my list of soups to try making. We love Aldi's tortellini with some pasta sauce, so I'm sure it would be amazing in a soup, too.
