Looking for Soup to fit with Barbeque

I'm having trouble coming up with a soup for our family barbeque. we always smoke some pork loins and slow cook ribs. i usually make a chili but i would like to do something different this time something that would somewhat fit with our meats maybe like a southwest kinda soup. I don't care for beans so would prefer non-bean soup.

  1. how about tortilla soup?

    1. Chicken tortilla soup sounds like it might work. Very flexible dish and not too heavy. If you let people do their own condiment add-ins like avocado, radishes, etc they may also enjoy them just to munch along with the lovely porky stuff.

            I've smoked corn lightly before using it in a corn chowder. Worked really well

          2. I like the idea of the corn chowder. Ina has a great recipe. A loaded baked potato soup would also be good.

              I'm going to third the corn chowder recommendation.
