I confess. I have two recipes that I like to make that call for canned soup:
One is a recipe for Max and Erma’s Chicken tortilla soup that I got off line. It is not remotely like a chicken tortilla soup that I have had in Mexico, but by soup standards, it’s pretty darned tasty.
Second recipe is a spaghetti sauce- ground beef, celery, onions, canned tomato and mushroom soups etc. Not like a tomato sauce for pasta, not like a Bolognese but again, tasty comfort food. I think the recipe was my mother’s mother’s , so we’re talking circa 1950. I ate it as a kid and loved it. Like it as an adult and my husband loves it. Certainly not a mind blowing dish by any means.
I realize canned soups aren’t the healthiest. I really don’t eat them on their own although still have a soft spot for canned Campbell’s cream of mushroom.
Some people regard it as next to criminal to use a can of soup in anything but I am no snob. Anybody else got any canned soup gems out there?
