6 Soups to Help you Celebrate National Soup Month
By Schwan's Home Service, January 7, 2017
No one seems to know when we started observing National Soup Month in January, but who really cares, when it encourages you to have soup more often. Maybe it began because soup, in any form, is soul-warming, satisfying and sustaining. Here are six distinctive soups to get you through the month and closer to spring. We think each one will become a new favorite.
If soup can be considered “good for what ails you,” this Chicken Noodle Soup will be the right prescription. With its tender all-white chicken pieces, thick egg noodles, and succulent carrots, onions and celery all in a rich, delicately seasoned broth, this soup is sure to be just the thing to keep you feeling great.
With just the right amount of spices for that warming touch of heat you want in chili, our Beef and Chicken Chili with Beans is a blend of beef, chicken, tomatoes, and chili and kidney beans, slow-simmered in a savory tomato sauce that is aromatic with onions, green chilies, green peppers and chili powder.
Did you know that wild rice is one of America’s native foods and has been an important food staple for the upper Great Lakes area for generations? It was figured out a while ago that wild rice and chicken make great companions in a bowl of soup. Our Chicken and Wild Rice Soup has the earthy aroma and firm texture of the wild rice, with carrots, celery, onions and a creamy chicken broth.
The taste of our creamy Tomato Basil Soup will make you think of summer in the middle of winter. Fire-roasted ripe tomatoes are blended in a savory-seasoned chicken stock with cream, fragrant olive oil, sweet summer basil, and garlic. Serve as an appetizer for a dinner party first course or have the ultimate comfort meal and serve it with a toasty grilled cheese sandwich.
If the word “loaded” makes you think of your favorite way to have baked potatoes, you’ll love our Loaded Baked Potato Soup. It’s got it all – hearty potatoes, thick sour cream, zesty cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, rich chicken stock, and chives. Try this one for a fortifying weeknight supper.
Tex-Mex flavors of cumin, chili powder and cayenne heat up this warm-from-the-inside-out Chicken Tortilla Soup. Our soup is thick with fajita-spiced chicken strips, rice, sweet corn, green bell peppers, tomatoes, chilis and zesty lime juice and practically shouts “South of the Border.”
Why not give all of these soups a try and celebrate National Soup Month by having “soup night” all month long?
