“I always look for recipes high in taste and nutrition but low on prep time and fat,” explains Deborah Redfield from Buena Park, California. “This thick, chunky soup fills the bill and is such a family favorite that I serve it at least once a month!”
Flavorful and filling, Michaela Rosenthal's hearty soup is laced with a hint of lime and has a zesty Southwest flair. “It's really a meal in itself,” says the Woodland Hills, California cook. Fresh fruit salsa makes an unusual but perfect topping!
"This is a great-tasting soup to make on a chilly day," observes Aline Winje of Slocan, British Columbia. "It's easy to fix too." The rich-colored soup has a mild chicken flavor with just a hint of garlic.
“My husband is not a soup-for-dinner kind of guy, but he loves this chunky, stick-to-your-ribs soup,” laughs Nancy Tafoya in Fort Collins, Colorado. “I always serve it with a warm loaf of homemade bread.”
This salmon chowder recipe came about as a way to use up odds and ends in my fridge. I thought other readers might enjoy a recipe that began as an experiment but became a mainstay for me. —Liv Vors, Peterborough, Ontario
I'VE ENJOYED this soup for years because it tastes good, is simple to make and doesn't leave a lot of leftovers.
When there's a chill in the air, a steaming bowl of this savory soup is welcome.

"I first tasted a soup similar to this at a restaurant. They wouldn't give me the recipe, so I went home and created my own," recalls Shirley Taylor of Russiaville, Indiana. "I like to serve this spicy soup with biscuits, breadsticks or corn bread."
