Brrrrr, it’s been freezing outside, literally. Today it went up to maybe 20° outside.
Everyone loves a good hot meal on a cold winter day like today. Sometimes, though, you don’t have the time, or desire to cook, yet crave a delicious meal in a flash. One thing my family does is buy Progresso soup and then bulk them up! It’s like a crock pot stew, without all of the time and preparation!
We purchase a few different variations and then dress them up: Chicken Cheese Enchilada, Chicken Corn Chowder are two of our favorites soup/stews to make. Simply open the cans, and pour them in your soup pan. We add rotisserie chicken, steamed vegetables, Uncle Ben’s Instant Rice, and croutons. It certainly adds a lot of flavor and bulk to the soup base. We also spice up the flavor with Garlic powder, Onion powder, Old Bay seasoning, and Worchestire sauce.
You can of course add any variation that you fancy, these are ones they we have enjoyed thus far. And it only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Easy!
