My top ten favorite soups for the cold winter season that are sure to warm you right up!

My 10 Favorite Soups for Winter

I feel like we can all agree that winter is soup's prime time. They get to be front and center, everybody wants a piece of them, and just about everywhere you go has some sort of soup on the menu.

When I refer to soups, I tend to think of it as a broad category of “warm stuff in a bowl”. So for me, soups, chilis, chowders, bisques, stews, pho… they all count, and they're all delicious.

Whether you like thin but flavorful broths like chicken noodle soup, or thick and hearty like clam chowder, we're all on the same team here. So, Team Soup, let's get down to the list! These are my top ten favorite soups to get me through long, cold winters that successfully warm my soul way better than that book about soup (Chicken Soup for the Soul, if you didn't catch my drift).


Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup

Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup by A Spicy Perspective

I love a good soup with pasta in it. The more pasta the better, I say.


Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Soup

Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Soup by Whitney Bond

also enjoy crunchy stuff in my soup. I'm known to throw croutons into my soup just before I take a bite, so adding tortilla strips is totally my speed.


Tuscan Kale, White Bean and Sausage Soup

Tuscan Kale, White Bean and Sausage Soup by Hunger Thirst Play

Veggies, veggies, and more veggies – but also italian sausage, which is fricking made to be in soup – if you ask me.


French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup from Lavender and Macarons

What is it about french onion soup that's so freaking perfect? OH RIGHT, it has cheesy bread baked right in. Literally. 


Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup from Pinch of Yum

There's something about this soup that just speaks to me on a deep, cozy level. Maybe it's the heart-shaped pie crust croutons, maybe it's not (but it probably is).


Portuguese Seafood Stew

Portuguese Seafood Stew by Bella Bonito

I'm headed to New Orleans for work next week, and I've got crawfish on the brain (and beignets, but… those aren't soup).


Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup from Gimme Some Oven

I make this for Thanksgiving every year, along with random Wednesdays because it's delicious and I just need it all the time, okay?


Spicy Almond Chicken Pho

Spicy Almond Chicken Pho by Cotter Crunch

Is it authentic? I Honestly have no idea, but it takes good and that's all I care about. Plus, it's gluten free! 


Easy Lobster Bisque

Easy Lobster Bisque from A Sweet Pea Chef

This wouldn't be an appropriate list if I didn't include my favorite soup of all time: lobster bisque. I am in New England, after all.


Instant Pot Carrot Ginger SoupCarrot Ginger Soup

A little shameless self promotion here, but it's fricking great (if I do say so myself). Stovetop or Instant Pot, you could be eating this tonight and thanking me shortly after. No seriously, it's really good.

  3. Oh my gosh they all look so good! We are supposed to have a big snow storm today so that to me means soup time. I have to see what I have on hand to make one of these….the butternut one looks so creamy and the tortellini soup looks like a meal in a bowl. Great post!
