With the temperature dipping down in to the 30's at night...This is perfect soup weather. So go grab your soup pot and lets get to cooking. And yes there really is ten cans in it...So it's the perfect recipe to clean out your pantry.
And it's really simple...I mean really the only cooking required is browning some meat and chopping an onion...and opening 10 cans...makes we wish I had an electric can opener.
And the soup is pretty mild so it's perfect for the whole family...well you might want to leave the olives out if you have kids...since I don't know many kids who eat olives.
And if you want it spicy put a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce...Mine is Cholula...Always been my favorite...I think it has something to do with that little wooden cap...And the really cool thing is Cholula sent me a few bottles of all of their different varieties of hot sauce. Just one of the perks of being a food blogger...So start a food blog and you might just get some free stuff. I think I'm going to start a car blog and see of I can get a free BMW.
And this recipe makes a big pot of soup!
