25 Hearty & Healthy Soups, Stews and Chilis to keep you going through the chilly days to come!

When fall hits, I turn to soups, stews and chilis to keep us fed! There is nothing I love better than a steaming bowl of something warm and cozy with lots of room for dipping a fresh made roll or chunk of crusty bread. It is pretty much my favorite things in the winter! (And yes, I’m one of those people who claims every thing is My Favorite Thing, so get over it!)

What are some of your favorite fall and winter comfort foods? Pastas? Stews? Casseroles? Holiday baking? Winter comfort food is some of my favorite of the year! The Christmas goodies don’t hurt either 😉

This list of soups, stews and chillis will give you enough variety to see you through until the days start getting longer and the sun starts to get warmer.

    I could live off of soup, and this round up is just what I need to make that happen! Thanks for including my saffron soup, Ashley, and Happy New Year!

  2. Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze says

    Thanks for sharing my taco soup recipe Ashley. Now I’m craving all sorts of soups. Thanks gosh that Vegas actually gets cold. In our last place the coldest it got was 60’s. I can make all sorts of soups and feel comfy. 🙂 Pinned!

  3. Amanda says

    Soup is my ultimate comfort food. It gets really cold and blustery here in the winter, so I could really eat it every day from December to March. These recipes all look so yummy. That Thai pumpkin soup popped out right away!

  4. Izzy @ she likes food says

    You are so speaking my language with this post! I’m all about the soups and chilies right now and it isn’t even that cold here, haha! I think the temperature in our house is colder than outside so I will just sit inside with a warm blanket and a big bowl of soup! I hope you are saying warm! Happy New Year, Ashley!

  5. Kelly says

    Love this delicious round-up! I am such a big fan of soup especially during the chilly months! Thank you so much for including me 🙂 I can’t wait to add a few of these to our dinner menu! Happy New Year, Ashley!

  6. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! I am such a soup person, doesn’t matter what the weather! However, our winter in TN has arrived – cooler (not cold like it used to be in MI) and I am in the mood for soup, stew and chili! Gary has been making no-knead breads that are really good for dunking! Thanks for all the new recipes! 🙂

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Oh yes — bread and soup are the best combo! I always need something for dunking 🙂 I can also eat soup anytime of year, but I do get a little more excited about it when the weather is chilly!

  7. Neeli @ Neeli's Unique Creations says

    Soup is the best especially when you have homemade bread. Chicken noodle soup, beef stew, and chili are my favorite kinds of soups and stews. I also like soups made with lentils because they taste so good and are so filling. That Tuscan Chicken stew looks so good.

  8. Roxana says

    What a great looking roundup! I love comfort food like soups and stews – it warms and fills you up and there’s always plenty of leftovers! 🙂 Looking forward to trying many of these recipes in the new year!

  9. Kristine | Kristine's Kitchen says

    It’s been freezing here (for California at least!), so a warm bowl of soup is just what I need for dinner! This is such a delicious roundup, and thank you so much for including my roasted butternut squash and apple soup! Happy New Year!!
