Hamburger Soup

It’s no surprise that this cattle rancher loves to make hamburger soup. Not only do her kids like it, but Ree is also a fan because it’s so versatile—she can add whatever vegetables she has on hand. (We have all kinds of recipes for people with an abundance of ground beef!)

Chicken and Noodles

The Pioneer Woman’s version of chicken noodle soup is heartier than most traditional recipes. She even uses frozen egg noodles, saying they’re just as good as homemade but so much easier.

Butternut Squash SoupTaste of Home

Butternut Squash Soup

Ree likes her butternut squash soup to be both sweet and savory. She includes bacon (of course) and adds maple syrup for an underlying note of sweetness.

Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup

Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana is the inspiration for Ree’s sausage, potato and kale soup. She prefers the homemade version because who wants to leave the house a cold day?

Simple Chili

As chili recipes go, Ree’s is as simple and straightforward as they come! Her satisfying recipe includes beef, beans, tomato sauce and a bit of masa harina, and our Firehouse Chili recipe is very similar.

Perfect Potato SoupTaste of Home

Perfect Potato Soup

The Pioneer Woman is pretty picky about her potato soup. She prefers it to be creamy, textured and above all, comforting. Her recipe uses Cajun spices and is topped with bacon.

Chicken Tortilla SoupTaste of Home

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Tortilla soup is a favorite for the Drummond family since they can each garnish their bowls with whatever they like. The busy mom includes cornmeal in her version to both thicken the soup and amp up the corn flavor.

French Onion SoupTaste of Home

French Onion Soup

In a surprising twist, Ree uses both chicken and beef broth in her French onion soup. She keeps it classic in every other way, however, topping the savory broth with a Gruyere-covered slice of toasted French bread.

Roasted Red Pepper SoupTaste of Home

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Ree makes great use of roasted red peppers, one of her favorite pantry items, in this soup. Her version is thickened with a bit of potato and finished with a (large) splash of heavy cream. You can learn how to make your own roasted peppers at home, too.
