Cozy Fall Soups

Fall is here with its fiery-tinted leaves, crisp air, and vivid blue skies. It’s the perfect excuse to cozy up with a bowl of warm, comforting soup! I’ve curated a selection of my best — and 5-star reader favorite — Fall Soups to celebrate the flavors and ingredients of the season. From creamy pumpkin bisque to hearty mushroom barley, these soups will be your go-to meals throughout autumn.

Chicken Soups

There’s nothing quite like a steaming hot bowl of chicken soup on breezy fall days. Especially when you’re feeling a little achy or extra chilled because you’re still getting used to the lower temps outside. Chicken soup comes in all shapes and flavors, and is a versatile option throughout fall and winter.

Chicken Chili Soup
