On a cool fall or winter evening, or even in the middle of summer when you need a comfort meal, nothing hits the spot like a cozy soup meal. When you don't have hours to spend letting flavors simmer together, turn to one of these quick soup dinners. From hearty chili to creamy chowder, we show you how to make delicious soups and stews in minutes.


1 - pound small new potatoes
3 - large carrots, halved lengthwise and cut up
1 - 17 ounce package refrigerated cooked beef tips with gravy
1 1/4 - cups water
1 - bunch green onions, chopped
Fresh or dried thyme

Rinse potatoes. Halve or quarter large potatoes for fairly uniform size. Place potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 5 minutes. Add carrots; cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, just until potatoes and carrots are tender.

In a Dutch oven combine potatoes and carrots, beef tips in gravy, and the water. Cook over medium-high heat just until bubbly around edges. Add green onions. Cover and cook for 5 minutes more or until heated through. Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with thyme.
From the Test Kitchen


Substitute 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut up, for the new potatoes. Along with the chopped green onions, add a handful of chopped kale. Serve the stew with crusty bread or whole grain crackers.
