Happy National Soup Month!

Cold weather has officially hit Chicago this month! We know that there are few things better than filling your belly with warm, comfort foods when the winter cold and snow hit. And, as if the timing could not be any more impeccable, January is also National Soup Month! In honor of this, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite Bistro by Vienna Beef soups, organized by flavor profile so there is truly something for everyone. Check it out. 👇

Best Chicken Soups

Is chicken soup really good for the soul? Our data says yes! While there might not be any scientific proof just yet, there is something about a warm bowl of chicken soup that is just so comforting. If you find yourself reaching for protein-packed soups more often than not, here are the Bistro Soups you should try out next. 

Chicken & Dumpling

The ultimate comfort soup, our Chicken & Dumpling soup features savory chicken broth and real cream, hearty portions of all-white meat chicken, carrots, celery, onions, peas, bell peppers, and of course, dumplings. It is as filling as it is delicious. For some added veggies, we recommend pairing this soup with a side salad to balance the heartiness of the soup.

Chicken Tortilla

Raise your hand if you also get extremely excited whenever you see Chicken Tortilla Soup on a restaurant menu. 👋 Don’t worry, you’re not alone! There’s just something about the flavorful broth, tender chicken, roasted red peppers, and chipotle peppers that just makes our mouths water. And luckily, thanks to Bistro by Vienna Beef, you can now enjoy all of these flavors in the comfort of your own home. Our chicken tortilla is great on its own but of course you can’t go wrong by topping it with tortilla strips and fresh lime juice. 

Mama’s Chicken Noodle

Would it even be a complete list of soups without featuring a classic like Chicken Noodle? We don’t think so! Mama’s Chicken Noodle is the perfect wintertime pick-me-up, with flavors everyone loves. This soup features antibiotic free all white meat chicken slowly simmered insavory chicken broth with carrots, onions, celery, herbs and fresh noodles. It’s the perfect thing to have on hand during cold & flu season.

Best Dairy Soups

Looking for creamier options? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Our line of Bistro soups has plenty of dairy-based options for you to choose from. 

Potato Bacon & Cheese

This soup has everything you could want and more. Seriously – does it get any better than potatoes, bacon, and cheese? In all seriousness, this soup is made with a hearty blend of three cheeses, real cream, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, bacon, and finished with parsley. Pair it with a side of crusty bread and you’ve got yourself a comfort meal for the ages!

Tomato Bisque with Spinach and Orzo

The classic tomato bisque you love, but with a flavorful twist! This creamy soup is made with vine-ripened California tomatoes, fresh basil, spinach, orzo pasta, and 100% real cream. Trust us – it’s as mouthwatering as it sounds. Try pairing it with a classic grilled cheese sandwich for a mature take on your childhood favorite.

Broccoli & Cheese

If you like the Broccoli & Cheese soups found in restaurants, this one will knock your socks off. Simple in ingredients, this seemingly-simple soup packs a lot of flavor in each bite. We can thank the creamy blend of American, cheddar, and blue cheeses combined with fresh broccoli, celery, onions, and herbs. Don’t forget to top if off with fresh cheese as well!
