Literally, SIX freakin' cans!! (It has been brought to my attention that there are only FIVE freakin' cans. Ooops, sorry. Usually I don't have a problem counting to five, but there you go. Enjoy the recipe anyway!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open all cans.
  2. Simmer in large saucepan until heated through. That's it. No kidding.
  3. ***You can top with crumbled tortilla chips, cheese and salsa if desired.

This is a regular dish in our house, at least once a month I'd say, though I do make a few modifications. I always double the recipe, (leftovers are great!) and I dice up 2-3 chicken breasts, and start by cooking a large onion, chicken and a tablespoon or two of minced garlic together. Then I put in 2 cans of chicken broth and 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. The corn, black beans, and diced tomatoes with green chilis. I season with salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder.<br/><br/>I like to serve it with lots of topping choices, so I typically have tortilla chips, some lime wedges, cheddar cheese, sour cream, avocado chunks, and sometimes some cilantro.

You know, there really is a sixth can! I have been making this soup for years from a recipe that is identical to this one--except for the addition of a can of refried beans stirred in. It adds flavor and consistency to the soup. So there's your sixth can. :)

Great, but I used home made salsa in place of Rotellos, and the soup comes out excellent.
