    It is starting to cool off and would like to get some "healthy" soup recipes. I am especially looking for a good tortilla soup. Hopefully if I can do some soup lunches, I can drop some weight BEFORE Christmas. Thanks to all.

    2 large cans Evaporated milk (12oz)

    1 teaspoon dill weed a dollop of sour cream to taste Fry up the salt pork or bacon in soup pot till crispy. Remove fat bits and save, leave the fat. Place onions and garlic in pot and fry in the fat till soft. Then add potatoes and celery and Worcestershire. Barely cover with water and cook till the potatoes are just soft. Lay the fish fillets over the potatoes. Cover and cook until the fish flakes and crumbles. Add the rest of the seasoning and Evap milk. Heat but do not BOIL! The chowdah will get better as it stands on the stove this way.

    Bigdog,

    If you want healthy soups, you should stay away from canned soups and boullion cubes. The best thing you can do is to learn how to make Stock. Beef and chicken stock are the basics but you can make fish stock as well. Check out the link I put up for you. It will give you a good start. Nothing beats a good homemade soup. Once you get the hang of making a good stock, the possibilities of the types of soup you can make is endless. Making your own stock gives you control of what goes in it. You can get away from the table salt and try some sea salt. It is better for you. You can make a big batch and freeze it and always have a supply on hand to make your own soups. I hope you find this helpful and good luck if you give it a try.

    Vic

    PS: Do a quick google for any soup recipe and you will get lots of recipes
