I made some old favorites this week! It was cold, and cold weather always calls for soups and stews! White chili and traditional chili. Both are awesome with corn bread. On the white chili, it was the first time I used canned chilies (I couldn’t find fresh). Big mistake! While it was easy on the kid’s palette, it tasted bland to us adults who are used to it much spicier! I would rather take some out for the kids and then add the fresh chilies!
I also made a new recipe this week. Emeril’s Broccoli Cheese Soup. Yum! I used fresh broccoli instead of frozen and opted not to add the 2 tablespoons of butter at the end. It tasted great without it, so I figured it could do without!
Do you have any favorite winter soups or stews? If so, please share! It’s cold! Tonight on the menu is potato soup!
