Fall has been so good to us this season. Wouldn't you agree? From tossing a football with the kids on a sunny, Sunday afternoon in the front yard to adventuring into the colorful wild, we can't help but feel as though autumn really showed up for us this year. And we would be lying if we said that we weren't holding onto the last of it with everything we've got. 

Yet, now that it's November, we locals know that our Wyoming winter is inevitable. The leaves are falling, the nighttime temperatures are dropping and rumor has it that children have been sighted sledding on Casper Mountain.

Although many of us are crossing our fingers for a few more weeks of fall, we know that there is so much goodness that lies ahead... even with the "s word" in the forecast. Not only is holiday season right around the corner, but so is our most favorite season of all the seasons... soup season baby. 

If 5150' knows how to do one thing well, it's soup. Potato soup, chicken noodle soup, Italian wedding soup, tomato soup, French onion soup, chicken tortilla soup and all the soups. The list goes on and on! But don't worry we're here to help. Cozy up and follow along with us as we put you on the 7 Soups We're Obsessing Over This Fall:

Tequila Lime Chicken Soup at The Cottage Cafe

1. Tequila Lime Chicken Soup | The Cottage Cafe

Tangy, homey, and delicious. Tequila Lime Chicken Soup from The Cottage Caffe is just what the doctor ordered to cure your cool weather blues. This is the perfect lunch stop with salads, sandwiches, and other delicious soups on the menu too!

Hearty Soup Specials from Racca's Pizzeria Napoletana

2. White Bean and Kale Soup & Truffle Tomato Basil |
Racca's Pizzeria Napoletana 

We couldn't gather our favorite 5150' soups and leave out these delicious house-made soup specials from Racca's Pizzeria Napoletana. They love to change up their soup menu to give us fresh and unique flavors each month. Indulge in a bowl for lunch or pair with your favorite signature pizza. Honestly, if you haven't tried the Truffle Tomato Basil Soup yet can you even call yourself a true, Casper local?

3. Smoky Tomato Beef Tip Soup | FireRock Steakhouse

Our next soup of choice takes tomato soup to a whole new level! Every Saturday our east side neighbors make a batch of their famous Smoky Tomato Beef Tip Soup. Rich smoky tomato soup with melt in your mouth beef tips come together to bless our soup lovin' taste buds. Top off with a handful of Saltines or pair with a warm roll. No matter your fancy, you're bound to crave this FireRock Steakhouse go-to regularly. 

Silver Fox Steakhouse Casper, WY

4. French Onion Soup | Silver Fox Steakhouse

A soup worth simping over. Silver Fox's French Onion Soup is baked with caramelized onions and garlic in a rich beef broth topped off with lots of cheese and a delicate, pie crust topping. Truly as delicious as it is pretty! There is something so rewarding about digging your spoon into the flaky top layer and pulling out all of that cheesy goodness while the aromas of the broth overwhelm your senses. All other French Onion Soups, please bow down now! 

5. Chicken Noodle Soup | True Bakery, LLC

True Bakery, LLC is a hidden gem right her in the 5150'! Their incredible made to order Chicken Noodle Soup takes us all the way back to childhood at grandma's house. Ingredients are locally sourced and the soup is made from scratch - making each bite worthy of local praise. Slurp on every last drop and don't forget to pair it with a delicious bread or sweet from the bakery. No matter your habit, this recipe will have you daydreaming about chicken noodle soup again - we promise!

6. Pork Green Chili | The Office Bar and Grill

Step aside New Mexico and Colorado - The Office Bar and Grill is officially putting Wyoming on the map when it comes to homemade green chili! If you haven't already claimed The Office as your favorite, local watering hole, just wait until we tell you that their green chili is homemade, fresh every morning by the owner's 87 year old father, Jimmy Sr. We know... too good right? This original family recipe is served up piping hot, topped off with cheddar cheese and sour cream and is completed with a grilled flour tortilla for your dipping pleasure. Pinkies up and spoons out, chili lovers! 

7. Spicy Chicken Ramen | Hokkaido Ramen

Okay, okay, so we know Ramen isn't exactly a soup... but it's noodles plus broth plus other delicious ingredients so I think we can all agree it's at least soup-like. Besides, how could we resist adding one of the 5150's newest restaurants to our list?! Hokkaido Ramen's Spicy Chicken Ramen is one of our favorites dishes this year. You can't go wrong starting your lunch with one of their tasty appetizers and maybe pairing your ramen with a yummy sushi roll. Stop in and give them a try. We know you will be just as addicted to this spot as we are, you're welcome!
