I'm a fan of hot soup, especially on a cold / chilly day. Soups have a rep of warming you up, and some making you feel better.  This recent Best Cold Weather Soups list surprised me that Brocolli Cheese beat all soups out, even Chicken Noodle. I also noticed Chili made it on this list. I've never called Chili ... Soup.. 'I want a bowl of Chili Soup .. but technically,  Chili is Soup.  Whether you have no bean, all bean, just meat, meat & bean Chili , which is another entirely different debate. Do you consider Chili ... Soup?


Here's the Best Cold Weather Soups list while you think about it 

  1. Broccoli Cheddar
  2. New England Clam Chowder
  3. Tortellini broth soup
  4. Butternut Squash
  5. Chicken Noodle (seems low on the list to me)
  6. Chili - Is this Soup?
  7. French Onion
  8. Miso
  9. Italian Wedding Soup
  10. Cream of Tomato
  11. Minestrone ( a Fav of mine)

So do you consider Chili ... Soup?

PS: This list didn't have Texas totally in mind orTortilla Soup would be on there. It gets COLD in Texas! This soup can really keep you WARM!
