Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili by Salad Foodie

Classic comfort foods can be made healthier without giving up on good taste. Case in point - this Chicken Chili recipe. Fat is reduced in the sautéing of vegetables and by substituting chicken for beef. But there are plenty of flavors going on here so you won't ask "Where's the beef?" Based on a recipe from Patti LaBelle's Light…

Easy Chicken Posole

Easy Chicken Posole by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super easy and tasty recipe you can whip up in 20 minutes! You can use the meat from a standard rotisserie chicken for this soup. I got mine at Costco. I can buy canned tomatillos in the Mexican section of my local grocery store...but if you don't see them stop by any Mexican mercado. They taste great in soup and are a…

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup by Salad Foodie

A hearty and colorful soup which can be cooked in about 30 minutes. Choose your meat type - beef, sausage, poultry, or a blend if preferred. Using crushed tortilla chips in meatball mixture is a nice way to bump up the corn flavor as well as use up the chip crumbles too small to serve.

Ed's Chicago Cocoa Chili ( aka Chocolate Chili )

Ed's Chicago Cocoa Chili ( aka Chocolate Chili ) by Edward Heller

I like cooking and I love chili and chocolate, so if there was any way I could combine the three, I was gonna do it. So here is my quite excellent balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy, which I hope you will enjoy as well. (This recipe has been on recipezaar-dot-com since 2002, where 50 people have posted reviews of my chili…

Sweet Potato Bisque

Sweet Potato Bisque by Robyn Savoie

This soup gets its wonderfully creamy texture from pureed carrots and sweet potatoes rather than cream, a dairy product I discourage due to its high saturated-fat content.

Slow cooker pork stew - chile verde

Slow cooker pork stew - chile verde by Nancy Miyasaki

This is an easy and tasty version of chile verde that I adapted from a slow cooker cookbook. This keeps very well for 3-4 days, and honestly tastes as good if not better reheated. You can also serve it inside tortillas as a taco or burrito for a second meal. Enjoy!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder by Salad Foodie

We never wait for fall for this favorite of all chowders, but enjoy it year round. A good way to use up leftover roast chicken, and the ingredients go together quickly for a fast weeknight dinner. Can be lightened by subbing fat-free half and half, or a 12 ounce can evaporated milk for the cream.

Chicken and Cannellini Bean Soup

Chicken and Cannellini Bean Soup by Salad Foodie

We've been trying out several soups, chilies and stew variations, and this one grabbed the spotlight. The chicken and beans give this soup the comfort food satisfaction we crave in cooler fall weather. If you reduced the broth this would become white chili, but we opt instead for it as a soup. Note that the beans are undrained on…

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot!

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot! by Salad Foodie

Hurray for fall and chili time! This makes a batch for about 5 adult servings, but there’s no such thing as having too much chili. You can freeze leftovers or just double the recipe and freeze the extra for busy week nights. I try to make a day ahead to deepen the flavors.

Almost A Borscht Soup

Almost A Borscht Soup by Glenn

I wanted a hearty soup for lunch and had a left-over half head of boiled cabbage. What else could I do but go wild adding borschtish ingredients until I almost lost track. Bottom line, if you don't have an ingredient just leave it out or substitute something else. Have fun and be surprised, like I was, that this came out tasting…

Mex-Italian Chili

Mex-Italian Chili by Chef Wannabee

One day I threw this together and everyone loved it sooooo much that now I have to make it all the time! It’s a little spicy, a little Tex-Mex, and a little Italian too! After I started calling it Mex-Italian Chili, the name stuck. Now I crave it all the time - whatever the season, it’s Mex-Italian Chili time! I like chicken…
