The weather here in Phoenix is finally cooling and I’m looking forward to some long awaited beautiful days. Despite the fact the forecast here in the southwest is still in the 90s for the rest of the week, I keep reminding myself that fall is on the way, one warm bowl of soup at a time.
Split Pea Potato Ham and Leek Soup – Loaded with rich ham flavor and a balanced combination of potatoes, leeks and split peas, this soup gets rave reviews from everyone who makes it. You’ll want to save this recipe now for the next time you have a hambone to use.
Loaded Baked Potato Soup – This creamy soup is filled with fluffy bites of baked potato, richly flavored with sour cream and all the best potato toppings; this is not your average potato soup. The soup holds beautifully in the crock-pot for 2-4 hours, making it perfect for stress free dinners.
I like to keep soups in the freezer for simple lunches and easy dinners. If the soup reheats nicely from the freezer, I’ve included instructions for that at the bottom of each recipe.
