Chunky Soup + Crusty Bread

I was at Trader Joe’s today and they had samples of this soup. It tasted good, A loved it, and the recipe was super simple. The best part is it only costs around $5 to make the soup! Here’s the recipe.

Trader Joe’s Southwest Red Pepper and Rice Soup
1 carton Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup
1 can Black Beans
1 bag Chimmichuri Rice

 Combine ingredients in a pot and heat to desired warmth, stirring frequently. Serve immediately. (My kind of recipe!)
I had already taken cod out in the morning so I poached the fish and served it with the soup. I also popped a baguette in the toaster oven because what’s chunky soup without warm, crusty bread? It was zee perfect supper (this meal seems more like a supper, than a dinner) for this cold, snowy Chicago night. 

What’s your go-to meal for a wintry night?


  1. Yum! I’m going to have to remember this for my next TJ’s run!

  2. I’m from the South {Texas} where there are no TJ’s and I hear soooo much about them. Is it sad I desperately want to visit a grocery store?! HA! The soup looks delish!

  3. mmm I agree when it is this cold in chicago I CRAVE yummy soup. We have a roast in the crock pot today.:)

  4. I wish I had a Trader Joe’s here! This soup looks delish! <3 My bully is rumbling so I think its time for me to figure out what soup i'm gonna cook! hehe

  8. Oh no! I need to go by Trader Joes. Ah! Can’t wait until finals are over. I can finally eat real food. When I say real, I mean non-microwave/left overs

  12. Their Chimmichuri rice is amazing. I have a bag of it in my freezer right now :) Soup is one of my favorite winter dinners.

  13. That looks heavenly! It’s exactly what I need as I freeze my little toesies off. I love mac n’ cheese in the winter. Homemade mac n’ cheese with shells because we all know shells are SO much better than elbows.
