Some days we just don’t have the time to make homemade soup. This is when we grab the can of condensed soup. I personally don’t really like the taste of most of the canned soups. I do like them in baked recipes. The one soup I have used in a few recipes is cream of chicken. I had two cans in the house and grabbed them along with some fresh and frozen veggies along with a package of minute rice. Well, I must tell you, this soup came out pretty delish.
