On Sunday afternoon, I made the Pioneer Woman's Seven Can Soup . It is super easy to make and so good.
These are the cans of food I used: Chili Beans (she used Pinto beans; I didn't have any in the house), black beans, corn, kidney beans, 2 cans tomatoes with peppers, and a can of Chili with no beans.
Open the cans and dump them in a pot. How hard is that?
Stir it all together. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer at least fifteen minutes.
Just before it is done, add about eight ounces of Velvetta cheese. If you are a cheese snob and refuse to use Velvetta, you can use whatever you desire. By the way, we paid $5.99 for two pounds of Velvetta; we bought 2 pounds of good cheddar for $4.99 at Sams. Velvetta is no longer cheap cheese, unfortunately.
Add to the pot and stir until the cheese is melted.
We serve it with saltines or cornbread. I don't know if it freezes well; we have never had any leftovers that needed freezing.
I have made this in the crock pot, too. I have learned that if you have something bubbling in the crock pot, you are far less tempted to stop for junk food before you get home from work. I don't add the cheese until we are about ready for supper.
This is a great recipe for food hoarders; those of us who have lived through ice storms and tornadoes that destroy the power lines, leaving us for days without electricity. This could be made in a pot on the grill or over a campfire.
