This next recipe comes from my #1 fan, Lori. Lori and I became friends many years ago while I was the receptionist at my high school during summer school and she was working for the principal. We hit it off immediately and have been friends ever since! She is a very fun girl and I love her to death!
The original name to this soup was “dump” soup. Now, I don’t know, but, I’m pretty sure that using the word “dump,” while referring to food is pretty un-appetizing. SOOO…. I will affectionately rename it “Even a Man Can” Soup.
The reason it was named “dump” soup, (just to clarify), is because all you have to do is open up a bunch of cans, “dump” them all in a pot, and VOILA! SOUP!
The soup consists of tomatoes, cream soups, cream corn, shredded chicken, beans, and onions. It has a nice southwestern flavor and tastes great with a grilled cheese. Or, a BACON and grilled cheese sandwich. Oh yes. Bacon.
I used reduced fat soups and lower sodium tomatoes and beans to make it a bit healthier. Also, because I’m lazy, I used a rotisserie chicken from the store. It took me about 5 minutes to put this together and I now have soup for the rest of the week! Not bad. Thanks #1 fan LORI!
