Tasty Tuesday: Celebrating National Soup Month with Chili

Courtney Schulist Super Easy 5 Ingredient Chili

Courtney Schulist: Super Easy 5 Ingredient Chili

Grab your spoons, it’s Chili season!! Perhaps I should start off by saying any time is Chili time for me. I don’t discriminate based on weather, but I especially love it during the Fall/Winter seasons. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to make the beans homemade on top of making the chili, so this Chili recipe is for those times.

This Chili can be made using only 5 ingredients and is super quick to make. It’s also delicious, but most chili is. READ MORE 

SAVAGE CHILI VIA ANITA STAFFORD

 

Anita Stafford: Savage Chili

When the weather turns cool a bowl of chili is one of my favorite meals. Savage Chili is a recipe I have been making at my house for several years because it is easy to put together and super delicious. This recipe has been adapted from the cookbook Winning Recipes for Tailgatinga cookbook that was compiled by the Winston Cup racing wives auxiliary. I received the cookbook as a gift from a golf tournament my husband was playing in, and this has been a super cookbook. Now and then my husband even gets the cookbook out and makes the chili himself. READ MORE

It’s finally getting cold in Arkansas! I never thought this moment would happen since we were in the 90’s last week, but that’s the South for you – really unpredictable weather. It’s been a cold and rainy weekend so I knew exactly what I wanted to cook Sunday night for dinner… Spicy White Chicken Chili! It’s not too spicy, but it does have a little kick. READ MORE

ALMOST WINNING A CHILI CONTEST. YIKES!

My son wanted to enter a guys-only, chili-making contest, and asked me to teach him how to make a pot of chili.So I did. This is my favorite recipe, and I promise I only told him what to do—I did not touch it, the entire process.

Smoky, hot, and red throughout I love it, even for breakfast with an egg on top. Oh MY! READ MORE

Anita Stafford: Dove’s White Chicken Chili

This is a delicious chicken chili recipe that I borrowed from one of my sister’s cookbooks. Helen is as avid a cookbook collector as I am, so when I visit her in Texas, I always spend some time browsing her cookbooks for interesting recipes. This chili recipe came from The Dove’s Nest cookbook published by the Dove’s Nest Restaurant in Waxahachie, Texas. READ MORE

Jamie Smith: 1 for 1 Meat and Bean Chili Slow Cooker Chili

This chili is almost not a recipe, considering it’s so easy! It’s one of my more popular winter potluck recipes that coworkers at one of my jobs usually asked me to make. My husband loves it too!

I call it 1-for-1 chili because essentially, the ingredients are one of everything for one pound of meat. READ MORE

 

Amanda Farris: White Chicken Chili

White Bean Chicken Chili amanda farris

Mmmmmmm. Yum. Soup month is my favorite! Soups are so easy to prepare, taste delicious, and are my new best friend as a mom to four little ones because clean-up is EASY and dirty dishes are minimal.

I have a rule for myself in my home. Anytime I make soup I must make double or triple the recipe. Soups are easy to freeze and save for a later date. They make excellent lunches as leftovers and are typically very healthy.

My thought is, if you are making a soup it doesn’t take that much extra work to double the ingredients  to throw in the pot and it  saves you time for a future meal.

My mom got me a HUMONGOUS soup pot for Christmas a couple of years ago, and it is still one of my most used and favorite gifts because when I make soup, I am really making about three soups. If you don’t have a big one, I suggest you make the investment and get one now. It is hands down one of my most helpful kitchen items.

The recipe I’m going to share with you is for a HUGE soup pot, so don’t double or triple the recipe to save it. Actually use the ingredients and amounts that I listed.

To freeze this soup, put it in freezer bags and lay them flat in the freezer. To thaw them out, you can put them in the refrigerator the day before. Or, if you are like me, you will forget. So, I just put my soup frozen and all on the stove top on the lowest heat available to thaw it out and warm it up. It works every time.

Having a plethora of frozen soups in my freezer has saved me in hosting on more than one occasion. You will always have something to serve unexpected company for a quick bite to eat.

Enjoy! Print this recipe or pin it to make later. But make it soon! Soups and cold weather are comfort to the soul!

Amanda Farris: White Chicken Chili

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Navy Beans
  • 1 pound Great Northern Beans
  • 12 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 big onion (diced)
  • 2 ½ cups diced green chilies (or chopped)
  • 2 Whole Chickens- cooked, deboned, and shredded or chopped (This is your preference) I prefer mine to be deboned and pulled apart in bitesize pieces about an ¾ inch long.
  • 2 Tablespoons Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons dried Oregano
  • 1 ½ teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper

Instructions

  1. Quick rinse or soak the beans according to the package directions.
  2. Put the beans in the large soup pot with the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  3. In saucepan heat the butter and add the garlic, onion, and green chilies. Sauté.
  4. Add the onion mixture to the pot with the beans.
  5. Add the cooked chicken and the spices.
  6. Turn heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally.
  7. I cook mine ALL DAY on low heat and let the smell fill my home. But, it can be ready to eat in 2 hours of cooking.
  8. Garnish with sour cream, cheese, and chips if you desire.
  9. It also goes great with a hot pan of homemade cornbread.

Notes

NOTE: I sometimes add in more chicken broth to make my soup the desired consistency that I like.

ARWB Soups, Stews and Chilis Round Up with Pumpkin Cornbread {Foodie Friday}

Debbie Arnold
pumpkin cornbread edit

We finally had a hint of fall weather in Arkansas recently just before almost-summer temps returned. Mother Nature has a way of playing us that way, doesn’t she? But we all know that it’s coming and we’ll stop fussing about the heat and start to spot the frost on the windowpanes and our nosel. It only takes a little temperature drop to turn our attention to warming our toes and our tummies. For many of us, that tummy warming involves big pots of soups or stews and countless varieties of chilis. We may garnish those with chips and cheese or dunk with a cracker or piece of cornbread — each bowlful calling for its own unique accompaniment in all probability.

This week’s Foodie Friday presents a round up of favorite soups, stews and chilis from some of our ARWB members. You’re sure to find a new one or two to try. Be sure to tell us what deliciousness you discover.

For a little something unique to add to your dining pleasure, whip up a skillet of this Southwestern Pumpkin Cornbread. Yep. That’s right. Pumpkin in your cornbread. And you just thought you had tried all things pumpkin already.

ARWB Soups, Stews and Chilis Round Up with Pumpkin Cornbread {Foodie Friday}

10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups buttermilk self-rising corn meal mix
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1 cup cream style corn
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup finely grated cheddar or fiesta cheese blend

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 10-inch skillet and melt in the oven while the oven is preheating.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients in order listed. After skillet is hot and butter has melted, pour most of the butter into the cornbread batter. Leave just enough in the skillet to coat the bottom.
  4. Pour batter into the skillet and bake 40-45 minutes until the top springs back when touched.
  5. Serve warm with butter or whipped honey butter.

Notes

Adjust the ground chipotle and jalapeno to suit your tastes. I don't put sugar in my cornbread -- heresy in the South for sure --if you feel the need for sweet, I suggest adding in sorghum, molasses, maple syrup or honey for an added depth of flavor that shouts out fall.
