I shared this list last year, and felt it was worth sharing again! I added all the latest to this list, so here are 15 Family Favorite Real Soup Recipes!
Before we talk soup, first, let’s talk Broth. Here’s my tutorial on making Chicken Broth on the stove-top. In addition, here’s my tutorial on making Beef Broth on the stove-top. I actually like making Beef Broth more often, simply because it doesn’t require the tedious task of boning a chicken. But that’s just me trying to save time in the kitchen. :)
And now, who’s ready for some awesome soup recipes?

Hospitality and Soup
As much as possible, we enjoy inviting college students over on Sundays after church. We tell our sons (our oldest two are students at York College) to invite whoever they want, so we never know who might show up on our porch. It’s a blast! Of course, we now also have several regulars who come every Sunday that they are available, and now they are inviting their friends too! So when I make soup for such gatherings, my soup pots are large. :)
In case you’re curious, and I’m sure you must be, the favorite soups our local college students enjoy are:
These are the simplest to prepare, and they are always a hit. As an added bonus, the Chicken Soup with a Kick and the Twenty Minute Taco Soup are allergy friendly (if I leave out the cheese), so everyone can enjoy them without issue.
What to serve with the soup?
I’m glad you asked. When we have guests, here are some fun ideas for what to serve alongside our soup!
- Love, smiles, and good conversation – Not to be cheesy, but if we serve nothing but soup, and spend time loving our guests, that truly is all that matters).
- Muffins – Here are many ideas and recipes!
- Fresh fruit, with or without dip – Grapes, strawberries, apple slices, and oranges are always a hit; our favorite fruit dip recipe is this one.
- Fresh veggies with or without dip – Find several great dip recipes here.
Enjoy soup. Enjoy hospitality. And take advantage of this!
