Best Fall Comfort Soups to Make For Your Family in 2023



As the leaves change colors and the weather gets colder, you want to find ways to keep your family warm and cozy. I love getting out my most comfortable sweaters during the Fall and picking out Fall clothes with my kids. Having a hot bowl of soup can make this season even more memorable and enjoyable!


Really, Fall is the perfect time to prepare your best soup recipes for the whole family. Soups are simple to make and go great with tons of different foods. There are many options to choose from, though. So, I’ve gathered up some of my favorite Fall soup recipes to share with you today. Your family is sure to love these simple Fall comfort soups.


List of Best Fall Comfort Soups Recipes:


1. Cheeseburger Soup


The first Fall soup I’ll be introducing is cheeseburger soup. Cheeseburgers are one of my go-to meals in the summer. When we can’t take out the grill during the fall, this soup is a great way to enjoy one of our favorite foods.


Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of beef

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • 1 yellow onion

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • 1 cup of carrots

  • 2 stalks of celery

  • 2 potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste

  • 4 cups of beef broth

  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes

  • ½ cup of corn

  • 1 teaspoon of yellow mustard

  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese

  • Bacon (optional)

  • Italian seasoning


Recipe Instructions:


Step 1: Start by cooking your beef in a large pot. Add in your Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and some olive oil. Break up the meat, then cook it until you don’t see any more pink in the meat.


Step 2: Next add in all your vegetables. This includes your carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, and celery. Cut them well and then add in a little more seasoning if you want. I recommend cooking your veggies for around five minutes.


Step 3: Put the tomato paste and diced tomatoes into the mix and add your beef broth. Stir the soup and keep cooking until the potatoes are soft enough to eat. Then add in the corn and the mustard.


Step 4: The final step is to add in the cheese. Do this slowly and stir in the cheese until it fully melts into your soup. You also like to add some chopped-up bacon on top to add some more flavor to the soup.


2. Slow Cooker Chili


Chili is another soup I recommend cooking this Fall! It’s easy to make and there are always plenty of leftovers for the next day. My slow-cooker chili recipe is pretty simple and you should have it ready within a few hours.


Ingredients:


  • 2 pounds of ground beef

  • 1 onion

  • 1 can of your favorite beans

  • 1 can of tomatoes and tomato sauce

  • 1 can of beef broth 14 oz

  • 1 pack of chili seasoning

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • Cheese (as a topping)


Recipe Instructions:


Step 1: Cook your onion and meat in a skillet first. Then turn on your slow cooker and add the beef and all your other ingredients together.

Step 2: Close the slow cooker and let it cook for 3-4 hours on high. You can taste-test your chili while you are waiting and add extra seasoning if you want.


Step 3: After it’s done cooking, add your cheese on top and serve your chili.



3. Broccoli Cheese Soup


There’s nothing like a bowl of broccoli cheese soup and bread on a chilly Fall day. This next recipe is sure to be a hit with your family. Your kids will love the creamy texture of this soup and they will still get some nutritious veggies into their diet.


Ingredients:

  • Pinch of salt

  • Black pepper

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 yellow onion

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 cups chopped broccoli

  • 1 carrot

  • 2 cups of your preferred milk

  • 2 cups vegetable broth

  • teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese


Recipe Instructions:


Step 1: Heat up your Dutch oven or big pot. Then put your unsalted butter in. Put in your onion, salt, and pepper, and cook for five minutes. Then add in your chopped-up garlic cloves.


Step 2: Next start adding in your flour. Don’t forget to do this slowly and whisk until your flour starts to turn a nice golden color. Start adding in your milk and also whisk it continuously. Do not add in the milk too fast.


Step 3: Put your broth, broccoli, and carrots in. Add the mustard and stir the soup. You’ll need to let it simmer for around 20 minutes, or as long as it takes for your broccoli to get soft.


Step 4: Start putting your cheese in. Like the milk and flour, do this slowly and gradually incorporate the cheese into the soup by stirring.


4. Taco Soup


My family and I love Taco Tuesday! If you want to switch up this meal in the Fall, try out my next soup recipe. Taco soup is great for the cold weather and it takes the mess out of taco building. You can put your family’s favorite taco ingredients in this soup and pair it with some cornbread or tortilla chips.


Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds of raw beef

  • 1 pack of your favorite taco seasoning

  • 3 cloves of garlic (chopped)

  • 1 can of corn

  • 1 can of your favorite beans

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 1 can of fire-roasted tomatoes

  • 1 ½ cups of water or chicken stock

  • Sour cream (optional)

  • Cheese (optional)

  • Avocado (optional)


Recipe Instructions:


Step 1: Get out your Dutch oven or a large pot. Put in your chopped onion with oil, then add the beef. Cook until the meat is no longer pink.


Step 2: Add in your other ingredients. This includes your corn, beans, tomatoes, water, and taco seasoning.


Step 3: Keep cooking the soup until it starts to simmer.


Step 4: Finally, put sour cream on top of the soup and your favorite cheese as a garnish. You can also add slices of avocado.


5. Fall Vegetable Soup


I know most kids aren’t the biggest fan of vegetables. When you put them into a delicious Fall soup, you can definitely change their minds. I love using seasonal vegetables in this recipe. Still, don’t be afraid to add your favorite veggies into the mix.


Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of butter or olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 onion

  • 1-2 cloves of garlic

  • 1 squash

  • 1 sweet potato

  • 1 zucchini

  • 1 carrot

  • 2-3 sweet peppers

  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes 28 oz

  • ½ cup of orzo (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon each of dried thyme and rosemary

  • 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth


Recipe Instructions:


Step 1: Prepare your vegetables first. Wash them, then chop them up into bite-sized pieces.


Step 2: In a large pot, heat your butter or olive oil. Then add in your chopped onion and garlic cloves. Cook till they are golden brown.


Step 3: Put your chopped vegetables into the pot and add in the soup broth. Also put your thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, and orzo in.


Step 4: I like to simmer this soup for around 30 minutes. Then serve it with garlic bread or other sliced bread that your family likes!
