Good Afternoon all my lovely people!
One of my favorite things to do on a cold night like tonight is make a warm bowl of soup. I just feel like Autumn is the perfect time of year to really splurge with different types of of hearty soups and chili's that warm your whole body up.
Bonus! Soups and Chili's are great for left overs so the next day you can just relax and warm up some more soup for an easy night of food.
These are some of my favorite types of soups and chili's for the perfect Sweater Weather night!
Chicken Noodle Soup
I personally think chicken noodle soup is great for any night of the week. It is absolutely perfect for the nights when your not feeling good or just want a nice comfort food. One of my favorite recipes to use is actually from Budget Bytes. It is such an easy way to make the best chicken noodle soup!

Butternut Squash Soup
One of my other favorite soups to eat on a cold muggy day is a Butternut Squash Soup. This one is great from Wry Toast Eats, her recipe is perfect for picky eaters, like Aria. We have had this recipe before and you can easily mask the taste of Squash so the picky eaters can only taste the sweetness!

Spinach Tortellini Soup
This one is a staple in our house and I will make it any time the weather drops! It is one of my favorite soups because it's hearty and has that wonderful Tortellini pasta. In fact last Autumn, I was asked to stop making it because Jay got burnt out of the wonderful soup. I use this recipe from Yellow Bliss Road. Her recipes are perfect for families and she makes them so easy to follow through on that you can't mess up!

If your anything like me you love takeout, and one of the best things I order is the Wonton Soup from Hong Express in Algonquin! I mean between the warm broth and Chicken won tons they are perfect for any night in. I mean aside from buying the tub at your local Takeout Restaurant you can always make a pot of it and have enough for the next day! The recipe I use is actually from Ahead of Thyme. Her recipe is quick, easy and well you cant really mess it up which is a huge thing for me.

okay, for you more experience soup makers this one is for you. Crab Bisque is great soup to make for those date nights where you just want to stay in and watch a movie. I've only made this recipe once and it took a while to get it just right, but its one of Jay's favorites. His favorite food item is actually Crabs and Lobsters so he loves this soup since of course is crab. I use the recipe from Delish since it has been what worked for me and gave me all smiles around the dinner table.

This stew is great for nights when you want something hearty and a little comfort. I can remember plenty of times as a kid my grandfather would make beef stew after a long day of school and just feeling warmth and comfort. Aria loves this recipe from Natasha's Kitchen because we add a little more carrots to it and anyone who knows my little princess knows she loves to eat veggies like carrots and celery all day!

For those of you who don't know Aria is actually 1/2 Mexican and 1/2 Puerto Rican. So I have full Latina on my hands. Yes please wish me luck. Since I am Puerto Rican I actually don't know that many Mexican Dishes besides the basics, Taco's, Burritos, Enchiladas, etc. So when it comes to really experiencing her Mexican roots I fall kinda short. I have always said that I wanted her to experience both sides of her culture so I actually learned to make this Chicken Posole recipe from, Cooking Classy. It is easy to follow and lets me really get into making an authentic Mexican Dish.

Chili Mac n' Cheese
So Chili's aren't really a soup but I think they are pretty related, like half siblings. Chili's are great for that Sunday Football game and they always taste good sipping a Corona or two. There is also a lot of different ways you can do chili. Aria's favorite is this Chili Mac from Recipe Tin Eats. Its an easy one pot dish that saves me plenty of time on clean up!

Sweet Potato Chili
If you have been to my house anytime between Sept- November chances are you have eaten this sweet Potato Chili. Not only is it my favorite recipe to cook, but it so easy and you can mix it up to really get the most flavor. I love this Recipe form Recipe Book. Although I use the recipe as a base and then customize it as needed, like adding brown sugar to really give it the sweetness it needs or going a little easier on the sauce to make a a thicker chili. It is by far my favorite Autumn recipe so it's only natural to add my list of favorite recipes.

Making soups and chili's became a great bonding experience for Aria and I since they are easy to cook and she can help make almost the whole meal. I also think that making soups gives you that warmth and comfort that Autumn is missing. I love being able to curl up with a bowl of soup and watch a heartwarming movie.
