There's something extremely comforting about curling up on a freezing winter day with a hot bowl of steamy soup. So, we've compiled 11 of our best soup, stew, and ragout recipes for the next time the temperature dips in your area.

It's December. Winter isn't coming—it's here. And unlike directors more interested in Netflix and a galaxy far, far away than finishing what they started, the cold weather isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

But we digress. When the temperatures dip outside, it necessitates warmth inside. And we don't just mean turning the thermostat up. No, we are getting all Chicken Soup for the Soul on you and saying that you'll need some stalwart recipes to keep you roasty toasty during the cold days to come. Luckily, we have just the thing: 11 of our best-reviewed soups and stews.

Struggling to cook healthy? We'll help you prep.

There's no denying the pure comfort that comes with a belly filled with warm soup, especially when we're still stuck in the doldrums of February. But standing over the stove sauteing vegetables, browning meat and subsequently waiting for a rich broth to slowly simmer to perfection simply isn't in the cards every night of the week. Life happens! Sometimes you have only 30 minutes to spare, and we get it. That's why we've rounded up these quick and comforting soups that are easy enough to pull off any night of the week.

Easy Spicy Black Bean Soup (pictured above) calls for fewer than 10 ingredients, all of which you probably already have on hand. Spicing up quickly sauteed onions and peppers with cumin and a hint of cayenne gives this soup an extremely flavorful base. Add in the stock and canned black beans, then let the mixture simmer while you dream about how you'll top your wholesome bowl. Shredded Cheddar, sour cream and chopped red onions are just a start.
