I'm sorry I just couldn't resist posting, since we've had so many fascinating discussions about Spam in the past. Actually, I think this sounds kinda good, but maybe I would make it with ham or smoked sausage instead of the Spam.

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can whole kernel corn

  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated skim milk
  • 1 (4 ounce) jarsliced pimientos, drained


  1. Heat dutch oven over med-high heat.
  2. Add Spam and onion.
