Soups

Tortilla Soup

I always keep a supply of soup on hand, both in cans and dried. Some of the soup is for eating and some is for cooking, and it doesn't matter how it's used, as long as we remember to replace it when it gets used.

In cans, I recommend that you keep some mushroom, tomato, chicken noodle, chicken broth and beef broth on hand. Plus whatever types you like to eat, such as Split Pea with Ham, Bean with Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, or whatever.

Most of the time for cooking, however, I use freeze dried powdered or granulated soup with beef and chicken flavors. Usually a teaspoon per cup makes what you need. If it's salty, however, you might need to adjust the salt in the recipe.

Every now and then, sometimes as a first course but usually as a meal, I make soups that the family enjoys better home made than canned. I will be adding more of these from time to time, but here are a few you can start with:

Black Bean Soup
French Onion Soup
Split Pea Soup
Tortilla Soup
Tomato Chile Soup

Turkey Soup

Oh, and what's that soup in the photo? That's Tortilla Soup -- try it next chance you get!
