10 Easy and Healthy Soup + Chili Recipes

As soon as there is a chill in the air, I want a big bowl of something cozy, like soup or chili. A bonus is that soup and chili recipes are often big enough for leftovers, and freezer-friendly, too! I’ve shared quite a few soup and chili recipes here on the blog over the past 9 years (!), so I thought it might be helpful to round them all up together in one post. Bookmark or pin this post so you have it on hand next time you have a chili or soup craving! Enjoy.

    These all look so good!! One of my favorites is the OSG spiced lentil soup: I could eat it every day!

    Yum, I need to make some of these. I tend to make a soup over the weekend to bring for lunches during the week. I make the same things over and over so it will be good to add some new ones into the rotation!

    Our favorite soup these days is Pinch of Yum’s instant pot wild rice soup. We add 2 raw, chicken breast – they fall apart/shred really easily. We end up adding more stock to the soup after shredding the chicken, otherwise the soup is SUPER thick.

    Another favorite is this lentil soup. Last time we made it we added some smoked sausage and that made it extra smoky and delicious!

    I’m all about the instant pot these days I love that you just throw all the ingredients in and walk away. Our evenings feel so hectic between getting our son fed and to bed + getting dinner on the table.

    Oh man, all of these look so good! Thanks for sharing this round up of healthy soups. It’s cold here in Michigan, and I want nothing more than to dive into a hot soup, but so many of them are filled with creams and junk. Can’t wait to try some of these!

    What a great list of recipes! After owning my instant pot for a year and a half and not using it, I made you chicken tortilla soup today. Perfect instructions for an instant pot newbie and the soup is perfect. Thank you!
