Soup/Stew Recipes

Ok, this will not be a knitting post obviously. I thought I'd ask you for your favorite soup or stew recipes. I love a good soup or stew. I have a great made-from-scratch (yes, that means from chile pods) chili recipe I'll share with you later when I'm at home and have access to it. I also have a veggie beef soup recipe that is cooked in the slow cooker. So please share your soup and stew recipes with me!

Also, today is the day Susan B. is having her surgery. Please keep her in your prayers.

Split Pea and Barley Soup

We really like this one:
Santa Fe Chicken Soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup half and half
1 cup cooked chicken (I prefer to use the prepared-in-the-freezer Southwest Style Chicken pieces and I use two pkgs)
2 cans chopped green chiles
3 cups chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes--use Ro-Tel for extra heat!
salt and pepper
1 t. cumin
6 T butter
1/3 cup flour.

Melt butter, stir in flour, add chicken broth-stir till slightly thick. Add milk & cream, and remaining ingredients. Heat through--really good!

We like Chicken Tortellini Soup. It is basically homemade chicken soup made with the veggies - then strained. Add the frozen Chicken Tortellinis (found in the frozen doors at Crest) and bring to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes and test the pasta. Testing the pasta mean take one out of the pot and cut it in half with a fork. Eat it and check for tenderness. You don't want them mushy - but not too hard either. This is really great for when you are sick.
