Black Bean Chili

If you’re entertaining overnight guests this holiday season, meal planning can be stressful.  Why not simplify meals by making a big pot of healthy, hearty soup, chowder, stew or chili, and serving a fresh salad alongside. For more fun, make a few Holiday appetizers for guests to graze on.

Soups, chowders, stews and chili are great options since they can be made ahead of time and left in a crockpot or on the stove for guests to enjoy at their leisure. Not only will serving a soup, chowder, stew or chili make it easier on you, but your guests will welcome a warm, comforting meal. No fuss, no muss.

Here’s a roundup of recipes for healthy and hearty soups, chowders, stews and chili, including vegetarian recipes and slow cooker recipes. I love foods from all countries, so you will find recipes representing all different parts of the world.  I hope you enjoy this collection of soups, chowders, stews and chili. I know I’m planning on a making a few over the holidays for my family and house guests.

I hope you all are able to take some time to relax, rest and enjoy some quality time with friends and family this holiday season, and to reflect on the many blessings we have all received this year.  Thank you for your readership and Happy Holidays!
