We have so few bad-weather days in New Mexico that we like to celebrate cold rainy one with bowls of hot soup. My family likes this ham and bean variety alongside green chili corn muffins.

“When it comes to health, I know how important it is to boost fiber with something as simple as whole grains. So if you want to enjoy a burger without the fat and, as a bonus, sneak in more fiber, give these a try.” Jennifer Kunz — Austin, Texas
Packed with veggies, turkey, color and nutrition, this hearty soup will warm ’em up right down to their toes. For an extra-special touch, top with shredded Parmesan cheese. —Mary Relyea, Canastota, New York
