Baby Portobello Mushroom Soup
Simple to make, but oh so very rich & soothing on a cold winter's day. Baby Portobello mushrooms give this soup a nice, hearty taste that your kids will even like. Do this in 1 pot to make life simpler.
2 cups Baby Portobello mushrooms, chopped, some left sliced
1 stalk celery, chopped (optional)
1 cup chopped, onion
1/2 stick + 2 tablespoon butter or margarine
6 tablespoons all purpose flour
5 cups chicken or beef broth (beef makes a heartier soup)
1 cup milk
sour cream and / or chives for garnish (optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a large skillet or 2 quart pot, sauté all of the mushrooms, onions, and celery in butter or margarine until soft & golden brown. When done, remove from heat and add 6 tablespoons of flour to thicken before adding the chicken broth. Combine quickly then add the broth. Bring to a boil, then add the milk, stirring continually. Add salt & pepper to taste. Soup should be velvety smooth & creamy. Let cool slightly before serving.
Garnish with a dollop of sour cream & a sprinkling of chives. Great with a sour dough or crusty bread.
This is our family's favorite chili recipe. It's from a friend & mom who unfortunately passed away at a very young age. We always think of her when we make it. Jennie was originally from Oklahoma, I think so you're going to like this. It's best served with the accompanying corn bread recipe.
1 large onion, chopped
2 lbs. lean ground beef
4 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 - 4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 - 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 cans chili beans (red kidney beans will do fine)
Grated cheddar cheese for garnish
Put 1 inch of water in the bottom of a 4 qt pot. Add onion & pinch off beef in chunks. Add seasonings and bring to boil, then turn down to let simmer for 90 minutes. Add tomato sauce & beans. Allow to simmer 30 minutes longer. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve hot.
