I try to keep my pantry well-stocked with canned and jarred goods. Although this soup is one of my favorites (bar none), the beauty of it is that it can be made with ONLY goods from my pantry shelf! If I have 1 pound of ground beef, I prefer that, but 2 cans of white chicken meat works just as well. If I have a fresh onion I use that, but if I don't, I just skip it. If I have fresh cilantro I use that, if not I use dried. Everything else is on the shelf!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using beef and onion, chop onion and brown both in soup pot.Add garlic.
  2. Chop red peppers and add with remaining ingredients.
  3. Simmer 15 minutes.
  4. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, crushed tortilla chips or shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese.
