Soup's On! Recipes for Soup, Chowder, Chili, and Stew

Colonial Village Blog, Manchester, NH  Celebrate National Soup Month in January by heading to your apartment kitchen to try these soup recipes.

During these cold winter days in Manchester, New Hampshire, warm up with a tasty bowl of soup, a hearty dish of stew, or a spicy serving of chili in your Colonial Village apartment! We have gathered up a few soup, stew, chowder, and chili recipes to help our apartment community celebrate National Soup Month, which is this month! That’s right, January is the month to indulge in the homey goodness of soup. Enjoy!  


Start this Crockpot Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Soup from Chelsea’s Messy Apron

In the morning, and then enjoy it — fresh and warm — for dinner. This flavorful soup is an interesting mix of flavors and textures. If you love beans, chicken, and cheese, then this is the meal for you.


This classic, chicken soup with homemade noodles, is worth the time it takes to make. The savory broth, combined with chunks of tender chicken and homemade noodles, brings back memories of comfort for sure. We like this version of chicken noodle soup from the Cutestuff Cooks blog, which can be made and on the table in about an hour. (Check out the other soups on the blog too, they sound amazing.)


A filling chowder is perfect for a wintery January day, and this Corn Chowder from Chef in Training fits the bill. But don’t take our word for it. One reviewer, Jessica, wrote: “I recently won a soup cook-off at work with this recipe. Everyone was raving about it, so I gave them the recipe and your website.”


A blog post about soup simply wouldn’t be complete without including at least one stew recipe, and we love this Autumn Beef Stew from Midwest Living. The name of this dish even has the word ‘autumn’ in it, need we say more? This incredibly delicious beef stew would make even Julia Child proud!  Mmmmm.
