Deliciously comforting foods you eat with a spoon! That's exactly what my popular Soup, Stew, and Chowder Recipes are all about!
From healthy to hearty (and everything in between), there is something for absolutely everyone in this comfort collection of spoon-fed recipes.
Please check back often as I'll continually be adding new and delicious offerings to my Kudos Kitchen collection of Soup, Stew, and Chowder Recipes.
I have so many recipes in my head waiting patiently for the day when I can bring them to you for your cooking and eating enjoyment.
So remember, stay hungry, my friends!
From scratch soup base:
Once you have a few homemade soup bases under your belt, homemade soups, stews, and chowders just became that much tastier...and better for you!
*Healthy Homemade Chicken Stock (stovetop method)
*Beef Bone Broth (slow cooker method)
The health benefits of Beef Bone Broth are enormous, and making it at home in the slow cooker couldn’t be easier.
Soup with chicken:
You can't have a soup section without listing soups with chicken at the tippy top of the list.
That said, there are so many more delicious chicken soups besides chicken noodle.
Check them all out and remember that (in a pinch), a store-bought rotisserie chicken can be your very best friend!
*Chicken Barley Soup (slow cooker method)
Soup with sausage:
Bratwurst, Pepperoni, Italian sausage, and more.
These soups with sausage are some of my absolute favorites, and I trust that you'll enjoy them every bit as much as we do here!
*Spaghetti Squash Soup (shown below)
Spaghetti Squash Soup is a wonderfully hearty, comforting, and healthy way to eat your veggies. This soup can be made with or without sausage so it’s perfect for anyone, or any table.
*Italian Pepperoni Soup (Instant Pot Method)
Soup with ground beef:
Almost everyone has frozen ground beef at the ready at all times. These ground beef soup recipes will be ones you turn to time and time again.
Soup with ham:
Creamy Vegetable Soup:
Most of the creamy vegetable soups listed below are creamy but without the use of cream.
They're blended in a high-speed blender (or a food processor may be used) to achieve the creamy effect without added calories.
*Roasted Butternut Squash and Vegetable Soup (shown below)
This amazing depth of flavor in this Roasted Butternut Squash and Vegetable Soup can go from fancy to casual and anywhere in between. The flavor is outstanding, and it’s super simple to make!
German Inspired Soup:
One of my absolute favorite cuisines is German cuisine. I love to play around with the flavors and textures to develop recipes that bring me back to my German roots.
Some of the German recipes below are handed down through my family, and some are ones I made up on the fly.
Let's see if you can tell the difference. LOL
*German Onion Soup (shown below)
German Onion Soup has plenty of caramelized onions, beer, bratwurst, and pretzel roll croutons. This delicious and hearty caramelized onion soup with a German flair will soon become a family favorite!
Italian inspired soup:
I'm not Italian, but I sure wish I was.
However, my taste buds may tell you otherwise because Italian cuisine is my second favorite go-to. The following Italian-inspired soup recipes are ones I'm sure you will enjoy.
All-American inspired soup:
You simply can't have a listing of comfort soups without some fun All-American varieties that families across the board (especially the kiddos) will love and enjoy.
The following are waiting to grace your dinner table and bring big smiles to those little faces!
Tex-Mex Inspired Soup:
Smoky, delicious, and healthy soups that are filled with beans, tomatoes, cheese, and all the Tex-Mex flavors you love!
Tex-Mex inspired soups are always popular, always delicious, and always a hit when it comes to lunch and/or dinner time fare.

What more can be said when it comes to French-inspired soup?
Time to get into the kitchen and get these soups going on the stovetop. I promise that you won't be sorry!
Stews are thicker than a soup, yet still a savory, spoon-worthy, and comforting meal.
*Stuffed Green Pepper Stew (shown below)
This easy-to-make Stuffed Green Pepper Stew is my deconstructed take on stuffed green peppers only in stew form. You’re going to love it!
Chowders are chunkier than stews and much heartier than a soup.
They're typically thick and creamy and will satisfy even the biggest of appetites.
Chowders are the perfect winter comfort food and can freeze beautifully for months on end if stored properly.
What could be better?
