Cannellini with Pork and Rosemary, from epicurious.com.
While the roasted tomatoes were good, you could live without them if you wanted to cut out a step.
Chipotle Chicken Rice Soup (I renamed it), also from epicurious.com. I skipped the sweet potatoes because there was so much stuff in it, I didn't think it needed anything else. Also, I didn't use the tortillas, just corn chips to top it. You could also use premade stock/broth and poach then shred chicken parts if you didn't want to make the stock from scratch and/or use a whole bird. Basically, the secret is the blender chipotle mush - you could add that to any soup for some spicy flavor!
