We usually have canned black beans & canned diced tomatoes.

If I'm really in a bind for a quickie dinner, I pour them together in a pan, add TVP or bulgar, & red chile powder for a vegetarian chili.

& I'm not in such a hurry, I saute chopped onions & green pepper to add.

Breakfast for dinner.

Lite Spam, potatos and eggs.

Corned beef, potatos and eggs.

You can toss in some frozen peas and carrots then top with some grated roman/parma


Some quick heated tortillas and you have a hot meal in 15-20 minutes.

Swansons Chicken ala king out of a can on toast. If you want to dress it up a little you can add a small individual size can of peas and carrots.

We do have canned soup during the week, mostly with grilled cheese. Others that my pop up on the table are Manwich, with a few of my extras thrown in to give it a home made flavor. I will use bagged rice during the week, you know the kind with the flavor packet included. But most of the time we have left overs from the days I don't work. I also make SOS from scratch and chicken, turkey al la king. It's so easy to make from scratch that it only takes a few minutes and by the time you are done sitting the table, walla it's ready to eat. Another easy meal is getting frozen raviloi and add your favorite canned sause.

can of soup + grilled cheese sandwich = Yum!

Agree with most canned fods being too salty.

We have that canned beef stew when camping once in a while, not too bad. Better over noodles. Bland though.

I agree Gardener on the sodium problem with canned foods. That is why I make sure to have a few meals of left overs for the work days.

I can't stand vienna sausages. The texture and taste is gross. Canned chili smells like Alpo to me and I can't do it. For some reason when I get sick I sometimes want chicken noodle soup from a can even though I can make one 500x better. I do use canned tuna in my salad sometimes. I never did like the canned pasta stuff. I can sometimes do canned green beans or canned corn but those are the only veggies I can do canned.

I also do like the canned roast beef from Brazil I guess, makes a quick burrito, just add some cooked potatoes or onions and cheese.
Maybe a Negro Medelo w/it...

I have an easy go-to soup I make from cans. It's super quick and really good. I normally don't buy canned chicken because I always have leftover chicken from another meal I add. Dump it in and cook in crockpot or on stovetop.

8 Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ingredients
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (15 oz) can sweet corn, drained
1 (12.5 oz) can chicken breast, drained
1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
1 (10 oz) can green enchilada sauce
1 (14 oz) can chicken broth
1 (1 oz) packet taco seasoning
Instructions
Open and pour all ingredients into a large stock pot or into your slow cooker and stir together. Cook on low heat for 2-3 hours. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado and tortilla chips.

I agree the crockpot is a better option -- by a mile! -- but a can of Campbell's tomato hits the spot perfectly on some cold nights, as does a more upscale can of Progresso split pea soup. Mmmm.


I also like a La Choy chicken chow mein bi-pack, with an extra can each of chicken, water chestnuts, 3 bouillon cubes and a splash of soy sauce. Over rice. Yum!


I also make an ultra-complicated double corn soup (1 can whole kernel corn, drained, added to 1 can of creamed corn; heat and eat with a spoon); succotash soup (1 sack of frozen baby limas, microwaved and added to a can of creamed corn), or just a can of Vienna sausages when I really want a nitrite headache.


Canned turkey chili -- the kind with beans -- is soooooo good.
