Soup Recipes

A friend, Teresa, sent me all of these recipes via email since she doesn't have a blog---YET!!! This is what she said:
"I couldn't resist sharing TWO of my favorite soup recipes. One is
super-quick and easy (Southwest Chicken soup) and the other is a bit labor-intensive at first, but the soup freezes well in batches and is a wonderful warm-weather soup (Golden Squash soup). The chicken soup is a recipe my mother-in-law found and the squash soup is from Taste of Home too. The cornbread casserole goes very well with the chicken soup."
So I wanted to add them so you all can try them out too - you guys are good - these are great soup recipes!!

Southwest Chicken Soup

2 Tbsp olive oil
8 oz skinned and bones chicken breast cut into ½” cubes
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp salt
½ tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1 can (14 ½ oz chicken broth)
1 can 15 ¼ oz corn (undrained)
1 can 15 oz black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can 14 ½ oz Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring until opaque. Stir in onion, garlic, cumin, salt, chili powder, and red pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently until garlic and spices are fragrant. Stir in broth, undrained corn, black beans, and stewed tomatoes. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir cilantro into soup and serve. Makes 6 servings.

That sounds delicious! I love soups in wintertime.

Thanks for visiting me and your encouragement about the coffee. I'm holding on! So nice to meet you here on your blog. Your family is precious!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
