Roasted Tomato Soup

Posted on

We have been ALL ABOUT THE SOUP in our house this last week.  Know why?  Because IT IS OCTOBER and fall weather is finally starting to arrive.  Okay, it’s Mississippi, which means cooler nights, and days still in the 80s, but we take what we can get after  a brutal summer of 100+ temps.  Fall, […]

Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Posted on

After a week away from home eating marvelous but not good for me food, I needed something veggie filled and delicious to reset my system to healthy.  I was going to make a straight up black bean soup, but hubs is a carnivore, so that demanded the addition of chicken.  I thought it was a […]

Chicken Corn Chowder 2

Posted on

My first attempt at Chicken Corn Chowder was such a hit, I thought I’d try a slight variation on one without tomatoes that took advantage of poblano peppers, which are a recent favorite of mine.  This one is a bit heavier on the calories, as it’s got more corn, does not use fat free cream […]

Mexican Corn Chowder

Posted on

This is a slight variation on my usual Spicy Corn Chowder, made “Mexican” only by the addition of a packet of Sazon.  It was a tasty if subtle difference from the original.  This could totally benefit from some poblano peppers or possibly a chipotle pepper (in which case I’d leave out the Rotel). Ingredients: 1 […]
