It’s time for the Super Bowl!!!
Yeah…actually, at my house, it’s more like….It’s time for the Soup-er Bowl!!!
Because I actually care less than 0% about football, particularly the NFL, but I care 100% about the food that pops up at tailgates and game day get-togethers. I mean, if there’s no chili somewhere in the mix, is it even worth going?
Whether your feelings towards Super Bowl weekend match mine or not, it’s a big weekend for foodies. We like to put together fun appetizers or break out traditional recipes we love. I wanted to highlight a few favorites of mine for these reasons:
- I’m a huge nerd and I couldn’t resist the chance to incorporate a food pun into its very own blog post
- Soups and stews are the ultimate comfort food and they’re amazing when it’s freezing outside
- My fellow dietitians come up with killer recipes All. The. Time. and I want to share the love!
So here you have it, a recipe roundup featuring some of the best soups and stews out there. There’s a little something for everyone here, so no matter what kind of crowd you’re feeding you’ll be sure to find something tasty!
A classic game day option that never gets boring. I love the addition of extra veggies like sweet potatoes or pumpkin to sweeten it up, and I ALWAYS sneak in at least a few more onions, peppers, tomatoes, or beans. Change up your protein by trying a version with bison, ground turkey, or chicken and crank up the heat as much as you want!

If chili isn’t your style, try a hearty, satisfying beef stew instead. Stews are a great way to transform tough or lean cuts of beef into something tender and savory that melts in your mouth. Not a fan of beef? Most recipes can use pork as a substitute. Sky’s the limit!

CHICKEN AND TURKEY
There’s also tons of ideas for using turkey or chicken – use up leftovers to cut down on food waste, or shop smart and use a rotisserie style chicken for your soup. Use the skin and remaining pieces to make a homemade chicken stock with veggie scraps and garlic cloves. Not only is it simple to do, but you’re all set with a base for your next soup recipe!
