Is chili a soup? To me, it is a hearty soup and super easy to serve when entertaining. Nothing could be easier than creating a homemade chili bar.

Think about ways to serve chili when creating a Homemade Chili

  • Chili Quesadillas with cheese
  • In a cornbread casserole bake
  • Make some chili cheese dip
  • Serve it in a bread bowl
  • Make some chili cheese fries.

When building your chili bar, use your slow cooker to keep your chili warm.

Toppings For Your Chili Bar

Chips and Bread

SOUP TIPS

1. With soup, it is easy to “Cook Once, Eat Twice” (or three times!). Soup is the perfect freezer food, which means leftovers won’t go to waste. Soup will keep in the freezer for a couple of months, so don’t hesitate to whip up extra-large batches to enjoy now – and later.

2. Freeze leftover soup in muffin tins for easy-to-transport single-serve lunch portions.

3. Allow soup to cool overnight in the refrigerator before freezing. Putting hot soup into your freezer can briefly increase the internal temperature of your freezer, which could negatively impact your already frozen items.

4. Don’t add cold milk or cream straight from the refrigerator to your soups while cooking. To prevent curdling, warm the milk and cream up before adding to the simmering soup.

5. Mirepoix is a combination of diced carrots, celery, and onion used to add flavor to soups, stocks, and broths. The smaller the pieces are cut, the faster they will release their flavor.

6. When making soup, “sweat” aromatics, like onions or garlic, first. Simply sauté these ingredients in a little olive oil or butter until they are soft. This will release their flavors and enhance the final taste of your recipe.

7. Give your soup a chance to cool a bit before adding final seasoning. When soup is boiling hot, it is difficult to tell whether or not it actually needs more salt or other seasonings.
