This was a fast and friendly recipe for sure! With some cooked ground beef it becomes a meal using all canned goods a perfect 20-minute dinner. I added tomato soup instead of minestrone and added a can of kidney beans as well to stretch it a little further. Delicious!! Read More

Pretty good! I added 28 oz. of diced tomatoes some chipolte salsa and seasonings like crused red pepper garlic salt and ground pepper. I served it with cheese on top and corn bread. I also used ground turkey. I will make this again for a quick meal! Read More

This was great and its SOOO easy to make (my personal favorite kind of recipes!)! Although we love ranch beans there was none available so I used a can of northern beans instead. Also it was a little too thick so I added a SMALL can of V8 "spicy& hot" juice to the stew. Turned out great. Mild kick but great taste. I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese over my bowl to melt but the stew was great as is!! Would make again! Thanks for the EASY recipe Sam!! Read More

This is truly good especially considering how simple it is. It sounded weird at first but try it! I used 2 cups frozen corn instead of canned. Read More

Wow I haven't thought of this recipe in a long time. I used to make it when my boys were young & we were short on time. I was surprised that Target didn't have the Ranch Style Chili Beans so I had to use Aldis brand of Chili Beans. I also subbed Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes and some chopped up Roasted Hatch green chilies (that I had in the freezer) for the Rotel. Added in about 3 heaping T of my homemade habanero salsa (we like things spicy). This recipe is very easy to make with things in the pantry. I just had to pick up the soup. I did drain the corn (to rid some of the sodium). Read More

This was very good - will make it again. As others suggested added chili powder and cumin to suit. Also added some chopped green pepper and onion. We froze what we didn't use for another day. Read More

This is awesome and SUPER simple! I was skeptical at first but the flavors melded quite nicely. My mothers been asking for the recipe for a couple of months now but I still haven't given it to her. I'm actually a little embarrased at the simplicity of this recipe and that's a good thing! Ver good! My picky husband loves it also. Read More
