5 Can Soup
1 can Progresso Minestrone
1 15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1 15 oz. can white corn
1 15 oz. can black beans
1 15 oz. can mixed vegetables
1 pound ground beef (cooked), beef for stir fry/stew (raw), ground Italian sausage (cooked), or any other meat that fits your tastes — You can even go meatless, and it’s still wonderful.
Mix all of the above ingredients without draining any of the cans. Put it in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours, and it’s soup! We had ours with some beef sirloin for stir fry (half price at Kroger last week!), and it was excellent. The meatless version of this soup is a great meal to keep in your pantry for nights when the unexpected happens. You can mix all of the cans, simmer for 20 minutes on the stovetop, and have dinner.
