It’s the ultimate comfort food: chicken, noodles, and the most flavorful broth you’ve ever tasted.

It’s got the crisp green beans for texture, the starchy beans and pasta for some thickness, and the herb-flecked tomato broth for a full-bodied taste.
And all know that vegetables are good for you, but not everyone wants a bowl of them for dinner.
That’s why this recipe adds in some onions, carrots, and celery, which are just enough to give it that extra something without making it feel like you’re eating a salad.
Serve this with crusty bread for dipping or dunking—it will be your new favorite dinner on a chilly night.
34. Tomato Bisque
If you like tomatoes, you’ll love Tomato Bisque.
Why? Because it’s rich and creamy.
It has the right acidity balance, so it’s not too sharp or acidic.
It’s silky smooth and can be served either hot or cold.
And it’s also a beautiful shade of red (that’s just a bonus).

It has taken our roasted carrots, sweetened by the sugars caramelizing in their deeply-loved flesh, and added some fresh ginger, onion, and garlic to give it a spicy kick.

If you want to take things over the top, add a dollop of sour cream and chives when serving.
I’m here to tell you that split peas are ready for their close-up.
They’ve got so much flavor on their own—earthy, savory, super tasty—but they need some help to shine.
That’s where smoked ham hocks come in.
They provide some meaty, salty goodness to the dish.
The Spiced Split Pea Soup also got some Anaheim peppers for a little heat, carrots, celery, and onion for rich sweetness, plus some pepper and cumin for extra oomph.
But then it also calls for coconut cream, which brings out the split peas’ flavor and makes this soup a real winner.
Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup is a creamy, buttery, cheesy, thick soup with all the flavors of spinach and artichokes.
It uses cream cheese as well as heavy cream—two ingredients that give it a rich, luxurious texture (and taste).
It also uses parmesan cheese, which gives it an extra punch of flavor from two different angles.
And when you put them all together into one beautiful soup pot full of goodness, it’s like magic happens.
You’ve got to try this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup!
It has a delicate taste of butternut squash that goes excellent with spices, like nutmeg and cayenne.
It’s a little less stringy than pumpkins, so you can slurp up every drop without worrying about getting stuck in your teeth.
And it has a natural sweetness that makes eating it feel like the most wholesome thing in the world.
But then there’s also that coconut milk that gives it just enough creaminess to make your mouth happy.
I know what you’re thinking: “What does Smoky Black Bean Soup With Andouille Sausage even taste like?”

This stuff is so good; it’s crazy.
40. Beef Barley Soup
This hearty, meaty Beef Barley Soup is a game-changer.
It’s big on tender chunks of beef and generous on mirepoix, which is just a fancy French word for carrots, celery, and onion.
It also has some fresh herbs to give it that extra pop of flavor that you love.
But know what else gives it body?
The secret ingredient: tomato paste.
It makes this soup taste like you’re eating at some fancy restaurant in Paris (but who wants to travel all the way to France when you can have this delicious treat in the comfort of your home?)
41. Meatball Soup
Imagine sinking into a comfy chair in your favorite spot and being served a piping hot bowl of Meatball Soup.
The savory tomato broth is comfort food at its finest, and it’s filled with Italian seasonings that give it a bit of heat.
The meatballs are soft and juicy, and the veggies are fresh and flavorful.
And the soup is rich with tender pasta noodles, spinach, sweet and juicy bell peppers, and creamy ricotta and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
Now imagine the same bowl of soup; instead of being served at a restaurant, you’re serving it up to yourself.
42. Dumpling Soup
The Dumpling Soup is a must-try.
It’s got big, bold flavors, and it’s just so dang good!
The broth is made with chicken stock (or veggie stock), soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, carrots, and fresh spinach for veggies.
It’s savory but has just a touch of sweetness, just like your favorite Chinese takeout place.
And the dumpling itself is something special.
You’d expect it to be chewy, but the ones in this soup practically melt in your mouth.
Chicken Tortilla Soup is a little spicy, but not too much—it’ll make your lips pucker.
It has tender chicken, juicy tomatoes, corn, black beans, creamy avocado, and cheese.
And then there are the crunchy tortilla strips that give it some texture and make you feel like you’re eating something extra special.
When you need a dish that’ll warm any chill, this Chickpea & Kale Tuscan-Style Soup will hit the spot.
It’s creamy, tangy, earthy, nutty, and extremely delicious.
This soup is all about convenience—you can whip it up in no time at all.
You just need a few simple ingredients: diced tomatoes, carrot, celery, onion, herbs (bay leaf, rosemary, thyme), and kale.
You can also throw in some fresh or frozen veggies for this recipe—just make sure you thaw them first if they’re frozen.
I’m not going to lie here: Moroccan Carrot Red Lentil Soup is an absolute flavor explosion in your mouth.
The cumin and turmeric add a spicy kick; the coriander and paprika bring an earthy sweetness, and the cinnamon gently rounds out all those flavors, so they don’t overwhelm each other.
And then there are the carrots—they really pick up the flavor of the tomatoes and lentils, giving the soup a sweet taste.
Please, stop what you’re doing and come taste this Creamy Tortellini Soup With Sausage.
It’s hearty, creamy, and full of Italian sausage and tortellini in a tomato sauce that’s been enriched with heavy cream and onion, garlic, baby spinach, kale…and more!
It’s the perfect soup when you’re craving comfort food but don’t want anything too heavy or filling.
And there are all sorts of ways to keep it interesting: try grating a little Parmesan cheese or throwing in some fresh basil for a burst of flavor.
Why order a cheeseburger when you can have all of its flavors in a bowl?
Yes, that’s what I thought, so when I tried cheeseburger in paradise soup.
This amazing soup is packed with beefy and soul-warming goodness that will make you feel like you’re eating at your favorite diner.
The crunchy shredded hashbrowns and chopped kale are perfectly paired with the cheese and spices to create an experience unlike any other.
And if that weren’t enough?
You can add beer to the broth while cooking.
48. Beef Taco Soup
Are you ready to make your life easier?
Do you want a hearty, Mexican-flavored soup that’s ready in 30 minutes?
Well, you’re in luck as this beef taco soup has both in spades.
It’s got a rich, chili-like flavor that will hit the spot whether you’re looking for a hot and comforting soup or looking for something to pair with tortilla chips for lunch or dinner.
And since it’s super easy to make, you can have it on the table in a wink.
This Mushroom Corn Chowder is a rich, creamy soup with chunks of sizzling gold-brown mushrooms.
It’s made with the refreshing sweetness of corn and Biquinho peppers for a pop of color.
And it’s one of those wonderful fall soups you can make even when you’re not feeling like it.
But what’s really great about this soup is that you can enjoy it any time of the year—it’s perfect on a cold night or when it’s just too hot to cook in the summer.
50. Crab Bisque
It’s the perfect fall night, it’s cool outside, and you’ve got a fire going.
You don’t feel like having something too heavy or too light; you want something that will warm your soul but also fill your belly so that you don’t feel like a total pig.
This is when Crab Bisque comes in handy.
Its rich tomato depth is complemented by a lightly creamy texture and umami that packs crab meat’s sweet and savory flavors in every spoonful.
And then the heat from the smoked paprika and cayenne pepper spice it up a bit and make it perfect for those chilly evenings when you just want something comforting to eat while curled up by the fire—or with a cold beer.
The name says it all.
The Gnocchi Chicken Pesto Soup is a treat for the stomach and soul.

You still have that rich pesto sauce with basil and pine nuts and a splash of cream waiting for you.
I told you! This fall soup will blow your mind—and your taste buds.
It’s Pozole Rojo time!
This is the soup that’ll get you through the fall.
And it doesn’t matter what kind of weather you’re having; you can always count on this bold blend of spices, chunks of tender pork roast, and hearty dried corn kernels.
It’s got a rustic texture that’ll make you feel like you’re eating something your grandma made, but it still has a cool, crunchy topping that will make you feel like you’re eating something from the hipster food truck down the street.
Pozole Rojo is the perfect meal for when you have friends over and want to show off your cooking skills—or when you just need some comfort food to get through the week.
Pepper, pepper, and more pepper!
You’ll smile when you see this one. I’m talking about stuffed pepper soup.
It’s got ground beef and rice, bell peppers, spices, and tomatoes—all the makings for a classic stuffed pepper wrap.
But what really makes this fall soup special is the cheese.
It’s like a gooey addition of melted deliciousness to a savory tomato-y broth that makes the overall dish so irresistible.
Polish sausage, bacon, and sauerkraut.
That’s a lot of stuff going into one pot.
But that’s okay; this recipe got your back.
This fall soup has a rich, intense flavor that you’re going to love.
It has the perfect crunch to give your mouth a nice little bit of texture without overwhelming the rest of your senses.
