C’mon Baby, Let’s Do The Twist: A couple of twists on the classic Progresso Rich & Hearty Chicken & Homestyle Noodle soup! Easy chicken noodle soup recipes that will have your mouth watering.

Oh yes! I was channeling my inner Chubby Checkers today. I need to be on a talent show. My act is cooking and dancing simultaneously. I was spinning, doing tap and line dancing, with a touch of ballet, ballroom, and breakdancing thrown into the mix. Loudly, I belted out lyrics to some old classics while I incorporated some simple ingredients into a classic soup in order to create what will be for my family (and hopefully yours) a new classic soup. The music was streaming loudly from my phone – downloaded masterpieces that transported me to the era of poodle skirts and bobby socks. I could see me, curled pony-tail, chewing gum, wide skirt, and sneakers with ankle socks. I danced and sang with abandon.

In my mind, I was no longer in my kitchen. I was at a sixty’s era dance contest. My kitchen transformed into a lighted studio, I held a microphone that was once a mixing spoon, and the large pot on the front burner of my stove was my partner. I sorted, chopped, and blended ingredients as I twirled in delight. I was making two of my favorite and amazing “twist” recipes. A “twist” recipe is what I call it when I use a stand-by favorite food and transform it into outrageously delicious. To make a “twist”, one must start with something that was already delicious and by adding a few targeted ingredients it becomes a new and reenergized masterpiece that everyone loves.

Today’s “twist” recipes use Progresso Rich & Hearty Chicken & Homestyle Noodles soup bought at my chosen fast – ‘n–easy, go-to store, Walmart. I stocked up on the Progresso soups during my last trip to Walmart; with them being made with quality ingredients (including antibiotic free and all white meat chicken), I knew it was a “must have” during the Fall season. I am going to throw-in some bling elements like spices, then other veggies and flavorings and simmer. When it is all done, in my partner pots will be two new and fabulous soups that my family goes crazy for. I can see us all tasting then dancing and singing around my ‘studio’ kitchen. A little ingredient “twist” here, then a little spice “twist” there and I have two new amazing and future classic soups. They are Thai Chicken Noodle and Mexican Chicken Noodle. I made both at the same time, so that instead of seconds of the same soup, our seconds were of the other flavor. My family did not just have fabulously delicious, they had fun with their fabulous. I know I have started a new tradition. From here on out, I will never be able to make one without making the other. Which is okay by me, because I love these soups as much as my family does. I just made these soups a few days ago, but writing about them has made me hungry. I guess it’s time for some “twist” soup. “C’mon Baby Let’s Do The Twist.”
