Manhattan Fish Chowder | "Northeasterners know the satisfying benefits of a good chowder—warm and comforting without being full of unnecessary fat. This is especially true when it’s a Manhattan-style red chowder, which switches out all that cream for a base of tomato and white wine. For deeper flavor try using fire-roasted tomatoes." #souprecipes #soupinspiration #soup #stew #chili #soupideas

Corn and Sausage Chowder | "This hearty chowder is sure to hit the spot—it’s thick, creamy, and the epitome of comforting. And despite the creamy texture, it’s actually rather light. The texture comes from a little bit of flour and pureed vegetables. If you can find fresh corn, it’s ideal here, giving each bite a bit of sweet crunch that’s absolutely irresistible. Serve with toasted cornbread for a meal the whole family will love." #allrecipes #comfortfood #comfortfoodrecipes

Easy Pork Posole | "Most pork posole recipes call for pork shoulder. We lessen the legwork by using ground pork instead. Hominy is a hallmark of posole, with its plump, chewy texture and toasty-corn character; you’ll find it canned in the Latin and Mexican foods section or near the canned corn. This low-stress soup is great for serving a crowd and even better for leftovers the next day." #souprecipes #soupinspiration #soup #stew #chili #soupideas
