Terrific Turkey Chili

Rating: 5 stars 1083
Using some fresh and some canned ingredients, this chili is a snap to throw together and will keep you craving it for days. Chunky zucchini, fresh green onion, sour cream, and - what the heck - shredded Cheddar cheese, are sure to make this your favorite chili recipe. If you like beans in your chili, garbanzos right out of the can are great in this.

Zucchini/Potato Soup

Rating: 4 stars 6
When my husband and I planted our first garden, we overdid it with the zucchini plants. By the end of harvest, I was at my wit's end wondering what I could do with the rest of the zucchini. My sister saved the day with this soup, although I added the potato and eggs to make the recipe my own.

Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup with Cardamom

A beautiful thick soup with bright orange colour and a hint of exotic spice. Perfect for autumn! Serve with a spoonful of plain yogurt and a sprig of fresh coriander for garnish.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars 146
I created this butternut squash soup with bacon on Christmas Eve, which was a huge hit. The caramelized roasted squash gives the soup extra depth of flavor. This soup has a very creamy consistency but is completely dairy-free except for the optional garnish of sour cream (I did this on purpose due to a guest who is allergic to dairy). It is also extremely healthy. Don't shy away from the curry powder; it gives the soup extra flavor. Feel free to play around with the amount of carrot, onion, celery, or garlic to your taste. This soup can be made the day before and reheated.

Dilly Tomato Soup

'This soup is particularly good to take along for lunch with a sandwich or a salad,' suggest Patty Kile of Greentown, Pennsylvania. 'It is also just fine served cold. Most often, I make the recipe ahead and keep it in the fridge.'

Southwest Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 64
Our whole family loves foods spiced with picante sauce, so I developed this recipe! This dish is very quick and easy to make, and it also reheats well. Sometimes I add cooked, sliced potatoes to the stew for a little variety, too.

'We tasted soup a lot like this at a local restaurant,' Marilyn Lee from Manhattan, Kansas happily reports. 'When I came across a recipe that sounded similar, I made a few changes to create this version.'

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Rating: 5 stars 3449
Award-winning chili made easy with common pantry staples and ground beef.

White Chili I

Rating: 4.5 stars 559
Serve with corn bread and salad. If you cube the chicken ahead of time, make corn bread muffins while preparing the chili, and use a bagged salad mix from the produce department, this is a very fast meal to put together.
