Soups for a Cold Winter's Day

Since it's freezing cold out there, I thought I'd add a couple great soups from Mom's Kitchen.  I actually got this recipe from my Grandma Patton. I think she found it in a magazine or newspaper insert or something. It's about as simple as soup can get &, if you're New Year's Resolution was to lose weight, you're going to love that it's also easy on the diet.  (It only has 3 WW pts. per serving - if you're a WW person)

Quick & Tasty Potato Soup

3 cans (10 oz. ea.) FF chicken broth
1 pkg. McCormick's Low Fat Country Gravy Mix
1 pkg Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien 

Mix together & heat through. 

Another family favorite is:

Enchilada Chicken Soup

Picture from www.tasteofhome.com

1 can (11 0z) condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup, undiluted
1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
2-2/3 cups milk
1 can (10 oz) chunk white chicken, drained
1 can (10 oz) enchilada sauce (I use the red sauce)
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies

sour cream, optional

In a large saucepan, combine the soups, milk, chicken, enchilada sauce, & chilies; mix well.  Cook until heated through.  Garnish with sour cream, if desired.  

Serve with tortilla chips & salsa.


  1. i tried this a while back when you posted it. i like hot stuff - but this burned the roof of my mouth hahahah

  2. Des - you might try using a just the Campbell's cheese soup (not the fiesta). That would tame the heat A LOT :)
