      My easy-peasy chicken soup. Nothing fancy but quick. I think I originally found the method on a website searching for soup but don't know who to credit it to since it is so easy and I modify it and eyeball amounts.

      This may work well for the shelter because it is so flexible.

      -Cooked chicken - I've used anything from a boneless breast I sautéed, rotisserie chicken, canned chicken meat, to chickens I defrosted then didn't have time to deal with so just poached in the crock post. Just shred or cut it up.
      -Chicken stock - I usually use stock in a box.
      -Frozen veggies - anything you want. I usually buy mixed or soup blend. Its all about quick and easy, but you can use fresh, you just have to add them first since they need to cook longer than frozen.
      -Noodles - I use bow ties but other types can work. Just make sure the type of noodles will stand up to reheating or plan to only add to what you what you are serving at that time.
      -salt and pepper to taste
      -any other spices you want (optional)

      Put everything in the pot except noodles and heat it up. Add noodles and cook as long as the noodles need.

      Some things to consider for modifications:
      -If using fresh veggies, put those into the stock to cook until they soften up before adding the chicken, then noodles.
      -For a big batch being used over multiple days or freezing, don't add the noodles until you use it. That way the consistency of the noodles will be better.
      -If you plan on adding the noodles later you can also cut down on the amount of stock and add more of that when you reheat it. I do this so it takes less freezer space.

      Tortilla Soup - My Favourite Blendtec Recipe

      ^ This is one of my favourites. It is just as good thawed and heated from frozen. We like it and so has everyone I've served it to but it might be a bit fussy and new ingredients for a shelter.

      My all time favourite is a simple chicken (or turkey) noodle from the leftover chicken or turkey carcass from Sunday's supper. I have to re-type it out so will post later.

      I'm a little obsessed too. I've never seen it in soup before though. Maybe I just don't know what I'm eating.

      Ale and Cheddar Soup

      1/2 pound bacon (double smoked is good), cut into 1 inch slices
      1 onion, diced
      2 stalks celery, diced
      2-4 jalapeno peppers, diced
      2 cloves garlic, chopped
      1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
      2 tablespoons butter
      1/4 cup flour
      1 bottle ale
      2 cups chicken broth
      1/2 cup heavy cream
      1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
      1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
      2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
      cayenne to taste
      salt and pepper to taste

      Cook the bacon in a pan over medium heat and set aside on paper towels to drain, reserving 1-2 tablespoons of the grease in the pan.
      Add the onion, celery and jalapeno and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
      Add the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about a minute.
      Add the butter and let it melt and get all bubbly then sprinkle on the flour and let it cook until it starts to turn golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
      Add the ale followed by the broth and bacon and let cook for 10 minutes.
      Add the cream, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and cheese and cook until the cheese has melted but do not bring it back to a boil.
      Season with cayenne, salt and pepper to taste. and enjoy.

      I do most of the soups at the restaurant where I work. One of my favorites is 15 Bean Cajun Soup. You can get the beans at pretty much any grocery store.

      Package of 15 beans (the do make a Cajun which comes with the seasoning, if you can't find it, just use 1 1/2 tsp of blackening seasoning)
      1 green bell pepper, diced
      1 large onion (I prefer yellow Spanish) diced
      1 cup celery
      1 pound of Andouille sausage (not smoked) I f you can't find this, Italian Sausage or Chicken will work
      3 Quarts Chicken Stock
      1 Bag Frozen Mixed Veg

      Put EVOO in a large stock pot, and brown the meat
      Add peppers, onion and celery, cook until soft
      Add Stock and seasoning, bring to a boil, add mixed veg
      Simmer 15 minutes
