Our pastor's wife gave me a similar recipe -- still has 7 cans, but the breakup is a little different. 3 (10-12 oz) cans minestrone, 2 cans ranch style beans, and 2 cans Rotel. We like ours with tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream on top. This is one of my husband's favorite dishes, which is saying a lot, since he doesn't usually like soups! :) I just cook it up on the stove top and don't simmer it nearly as long, though it is definitely spicier/has more flavor if allowed to sit longer before eating.

This is a super easy soup to make and wonderful on a cold day. I'm a teacher so I don't have a lot of extra time and this one doesn't take any. I have never let it cook for as long as this recipe calls for. We make it and eat it right away. Delicious! I also use 2 cans of Rotel and a can of beef broth instead of the stewed tomatoes. I usually as some shell pasta ass well. Bon appetite!

This was SO easy to prepare and I let it simmer in the crock pot for 7 hours. Hubby is eating his second bowl as I type this. I didn't have two cans of stewed tomatoes, so I added some salsa instead. I also added some salt, pepper and a dash of garlic salt. Mmmm. Thanks so much for posting loof! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

This was a good easy soup to make. Nothing extrivagant, pre-spiced and all. It did hit the spot. :) Made with Anme's Anme's Garlic Knots

This is a great recipe and so quick to prepare since you don't have to prep a lot of ingredients. We had it as soup the first night, and since there are only 3 of us I put the rest in the fridge. The second day we had it for lunch and it was more like a stew; I think the beans absorbed some more liquid. The ranch beans added a bit of chili flavor, yum! I served this with crusty bread and we really enjoyed it.
