Autumn Beef Stew

Let the aroma of this savory supper welcome you home after work. Chock-full of tender beef, hearty potatoes and colorful carrots, this down-home dinner is a staple at Margaret Shauers' kitchen in Great Bend, Kansas.

Greek Chicken Stew (Stifado)

Rating: 4.5 stars 41
This is traditional hearty Greek comfort food. It is typically made with hare or beef. This version uses chicken, so that you can have the heartiness and full taste without the trouble or extra calories!

Chicken and Black Bean Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 80
This a recipe I came up with after getting a few ideas from a friend. The combination of chipotle and cilantro really complete this chili.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Rating: 4 stars 86
A savory autumn stew with apple, red potatoes, onion and seasoning. This is a very easy tasty chicken dish I concocted when I was trying to think of a dish like pot roast yet using chicken rather than beef. My husband hates mushrooms, so I tried condensed celery soup, and it works great. This dish is light yet very zesty and full of flavor. You can substitute using chicken thighs, but it will increase calories and fat. I think using biscuit gravy mix rather than onion gravy mix would work (the flavor would go well with chicken), adding richness, although I haven't tried it that way yet, but again, it would add more fat and calories to this dish. Serve with a side of rice or over noodles.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Share this huge pot of bean soup with friends, or freeze some for later.

Patty's Mom's Black Bean Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
This is a simple recipe, yet it is the best black bean soup I've tried. I have been lucky to get home smoked ham, and used the bone from it. I've also made it with smoked ham hocks I've gotten from the butcher. Of course the home smoked ham makes the soup superlative, the butcher bone made it wonderful. Either way, I think you'll enjoy it. It can be made spicy if that's the way you prefer it. It can also be topped with sour cream.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Rating: 4.5 stars 918
A slight variation on a recipe I received from a fellow Minnesota farm wife. A delicious soup that can also easily be cooked in a slow cooker and freezes well.
