(this list was created by K and commented on by E. comments are in navy)
Chili’s Chicken Enchilada – gross. i am averse to mexican food of any kind (unless its homemade tacos) move to dislike list.
Chicken Wild Rice (only the super thick/creamy kind) – make it almandine and i’m in. see GC’s Tuesday soup. it’s the only reason i miss that place.
Clam Chowder – i get cravings for this, but never in substantial quantities. move to take it or leave it list.
Vegetable Beef – dislike. canned vegetables = awful.
Gumbo – upon reflection, i can’t remember actually ever EATING gumbo. or wanting to. take it or leave it.
Homemade Chicken Noodle (w/dumplings) – the dumplings are key here. yes.
Ciatti’s Chicken Tortellini – does ciatti’s even still exist as a restaurant entity? i dislike filled pasta in my soup.
French Onion – tastes good, feels good for about 15 minutes then gives me gut rot and forces me to keep a 20 foot distance from all living things for the next 18 hours. dislike.
Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana – never had it. also, what is with you and restaurant specific soups? if you’re going to eat out, why waste your time with soup?
Chili (technically not a soup per se…) – gross. beans AND ground up meat. could there BE a worse combination?
Hobo Stew (my grandpa makes this and once told me the rutabaga’s in it – that i wouldn’t eat – were square carrots. I believed him) – never had that either, and never will, seeing as i’m allergic to rutabegas. your grandpa could have killed me.
Beef & Barley – was our “soup of the day” in the cafeteria, along with “HW bean”. i threw up a little.
Tomato Basil (or just tomato, if you’re boring) – this is the rock star of soups. especially with good bread.
Beer Cheese – best in a bread bowl, but acceptable simply with popcorn. also good mixed with tomato.
Chicken & Stars – my favorite of the campbells variety
Cream of Mushroom** – the disclaimer here is that this soup is disgusting when eaten as-is.. However, this soup adds enormous value to many gourmet dishes: chicken & rice, beef stroganoff, and swedish meatballs to name just a few.
Split pea (with or without ham)
Any variety of bean
