Cream of Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Soup


Winner of the Savory Soup Spectacular Contest

Jan Mullikin


I like convenience, so I used jar peppers. If you have time to roast the peppers it would be even better.
I also use leftover rotisserie chicken. When we buy a rotisserie chicken from the deli, my family never wants the meat on the bottom so I shred it and use it in soup later.

Blue Ribbon Recipe


The flavor of this creamy soup is delightfully strong... and delicious! There's no heat in this dish, so don't shy away from it just because of it's name. The flavor is rich and slightly smoky. I love chicken so I did opt to add the shredded chicken Jan listed as optional - I'd recommend you do the same.

8 Fun & Flavorful Margarita Recipes

Guacamole and chips just taste a little better with a margarita. Sitting on the back patio on a warm day is a tad more relaxing sipping on a frozen margarita. They are traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. One reason we love margaritas, though, is you can adjust ingredients to suit your […]
