Soups, Stews and Chilis, Oh MY!

A warm bowl of comfort

Nothing is more comforting on a cool day than a warm bowl of soup, stew or chili!  Whether you plan ahead and make a slow cooker recipe or make a quick dump and go chili, there are endless options to suit your mood.  We’ve put together a collection of our favorite recipes for you to try when you need a warm bowl of comfort.



From filling, full-meal soups to light starter soups and go-to classics, we have a delicious soup recipe for you.   


Typically more hearty and substantial than a soup, serve a warm stew with some crunchy bread and butter for a simple and delicious meal.  Choose a slow cooker option for a hands-off meal that will fill your home with delicious aromas all day long.  

Beef Bourguignon

Don’t let this French dish’s reputation for being fancy put you off — it’s basically just a beef stew made with wine. Serve it with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice

The chipotles lend a smoky flavour to this meaty one-pot meal. Spoon a dollop of our Lime Cream on top of each bowl to cut through the chili’s heat and richness.
