Comfort-Food Ideas for Chilly Weather
Autumn is the season for soup – and chili. When the weather turns cooler, they’re our go-tos.
So this week we’re highlighting some of our favorite season-appropriate recipes from blog posts past. There are enough of them to tide you over for a few weeks – while we sneak off for vacation.
For now, soup’s on!
|Cream of Mushroom Soup|
Soup Recipes for Fall
- Cream of Mushroom Soup. So much better than that canned stuff you had as a kid.
- Celery, Corn, and Bacon Chowder. Celery takes the lead role in this hearty dish.
- Vegan Mulligatawny Soup with Cabbage. Chickpeas add depth to this spicy Indian-style soup.
- Pasta e Fagioli Soup. This pasta and bean soup is Italian comfort food.
- Tuscan Bean and Pasta Soup. Vegan Italian. Yum.
- White Bean and Potato Soup. Make this with ham bone (or a handy substitute).
- Split Pea Soup with Bacon. Ham-bone flavor without the ham bone.
- Leek and Potato Soup. This classic is great as a first course, but sturdy enough for a main.
- Spicy Roast Winter Squash Soup. Healthy flavor for hearty appetites.
- Check out the index for additional soup ideas.
|Slow Cooker Homestyle Chili|
Chili Recipes for Fall
- Slow Cooker Homestyle Chili. Easy – and just like mom used to make.
- Cabbage Chili with Spicy Sausage. Black-eyed peas add savor to this healthy cold-weather pleaser.
- Meat and Potatoes Chili. Because meat. And potatoes.
- Texas-Style Chili con Carne. Warm up with a meat-centric classic. Made the traditional way (without beans).
- Sweet Potato Chili with Black Beans. Sweet potatoes make this veggie chili a contender.
- Pumpkin and Pork Chili. It’s autumn, so pumpkins. Right?
- Pulled Pork Green Chile Chili. Flavorful, but mild enough for the spice-shy.
- BBQ Beef Brisket Chili. Beer and barbecue sauce are ingredients. Need we say more?
- Check out the index for additional chili ideas.

Programming Note: We’re Taking a Break
We’re taking some down time for the next few weeks. So we won’t be posting (or visiting other blogs) for a while.
We’ll be back on October 11th with a new recipe. See you then!
I love soups and soup season! This post is getting me excited! Enjoy your break!! :-)
Hi Amy, soup and chili season is the best, isn't it? At least it's my favorite cooking season. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Great ideas for fall which has arrived all too soon! I love savory-flavored pumpkin dishes. My idea of pumpkin spice is sage & onions.
Enjoy your break.
best... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
I can't wait to slurp my way through each and every one of these, John, great collection, and I'm going to start with that divine mushroom soup!
Hi Mae, sage and onions sounds like a terrific pumpkin spice! Good flavor combo. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Hi Sue, that mushroom soup is really good! Enjoy. :-) Thanks for the comment.
All of them look so comforting and delish that would be hard to choose only one to cook.
Hi Denise, guess you'll have to cook them all. :D Thanks for the comment.
oh wow! This chili screams fall. Just beautiful.
Hi Velva, don't you love a big bowl of chili in the fall? Or winter? Love the stuff. :-) Thanks for the comment.
I am so not ready for fall, but I always love a good soup. Enjoy your break!
Oh wow such a fantastic array of soups. I'm just sitting outside right now enjoying our fall-like weather and looking at how many trees are starting to change color. This is my favorite time of the year and enjoy indulging in soups. Thanks for sharing this nice assortment. Enjoy your time off. See you in October.
Hi Laura, it's always soup time around here. :-) Thanks for the comment.
NO...No...we still have one more week of summer!!! :) How I hate to see summer leave; however, I do love the fall and I do love soup season. This is a great list of fall soups. The Cream of Mushroom Soup has my name on it. Thanks John!
Have a wonderful vacation! Your celery, corn, and bacon chowder looks scrumptious right now.
Perfect timing for the chillier nights, I've been craving soup ever since they turned the fall switch on! I love the heartier soups and chilis too, real comfort food. Cream of mushroom soup sounds so wonderful right now, and as luck would have it, I have an assortment of mushrooms in my fridge.
Such a beautiful and delicious collection of Fall recipes. Pumpkin season is just awesome.
Fall is my favorite time of year and YAY for soup season. Great line up! Bring it on.

Hi Mimi, we can never restrain ourselves from making chili while it's still warm out, either. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Have a great vacation! Unplugging is terrific from time to time. And soup is my favorite this time of year - all year actually. Thanks so much!
Have a great trip. I'll stay behind and slurp. GREG
Hi Tricia, unplugging is good. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Hi Greg, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it! :-) Thanks for the comment.
Is there anything better than a big bowl of soup in the fall? Have a wonderful vacation!
Hi Kelsie, nope -- can never get enough of soup! Thanks for the comment.
Enjoy your vacation! This is such a wonderful time of year, on the cusp of two seasons! The cream of mushrooms soup looks so inviting, I'll save the recipe for November. That's when our cool weather arrives.

I hope you have a great vacation! Thanks for all the soup inspiration!
Hi Dahn, isn't soup SO good?! At this time of the year we have soup and/or chili several times a week. We never get tired of it! Thanks for the comment.

Hi GiGi, fall is definitely my favorite season! Who doesn't get giddy over it? :-) Thanks for the comment.

Although it's springtime downunder, we had snow recently... so these recipes are perfect! Thank you John.
So ready for soup season, John! You have some terrific recipes in your roundup here...especially those chili recipes. You've got me craving some chili! Oct 11 is my bday, just FYI LOL Looking forward to your return post and I hope you all have a wonderful break!

I have a sudden craving for a big bowl of chili. It looks terrific.
Hi Pam, sorry about that craving thing. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Fabulous round up John as this weather is just screaming for autumn soups and chili. Enjoy your rest and looking forward to catching up in October!
Soup season is the only motivation I can think of to help me let go of summer, thanks for the reminder. Enjoy being "unplugged" for a bit ~ it's an important part of refreshing and relaxing. :)
Hi Bobbi, isn't coup and chili season wonderful? :-) Thanks for the comment.
Hi Judy, being unplugged is a good thing! Of course Mrs KR might say I'm unhinged. :-) Thanks for the comment.
These all look delicious John, i might try the slow cooker chili. I can feel fall in the air.
I've been clawing and scratching to hang onto summer but realize it's a losing battle...the plants are ready for a break and the cooler weather is apparent, especially in the evening. So soups are IN and I admit I'm ready. What a great roundup; thanks!
Hi Gerlinde, that slow cooker chili is really easy to make. And awfully tasty. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Hi Barb, we're always sorry to see summer go, but really like soups, so we're happy for soup weather. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Yummy! Slow cooked homestyle chilli for me. Or, maybe the mushroom soup, never could pass up on the Shrooms.
Hi Anna, Shrooms are GOOD! :-) Thanks for the comment.
Great collection of soups John, enjoy your time off.
Hi Cheri, we're looking forward to some time off. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Since we are still having fairly sweltering weather here, I will definitely have to bookmark these great soup recipes for when the weather starts to turn cooler.
I am just working on a post that disparages Cream of Somethings in a can so I had to smile when your mushroom soup popped up here (which looks amazing, btw, as do all of these recipes! Cooler weather now, please. Enjoy the hiatus!
Hi Carolyn, you're having a really hot September! Let's hope October is more normal. :-) Thanks for the comment.
Hi Debra, those cream of something soups are so 50s and 60s, aren't they? :-) Thanks for the comment.
