I have two dilemmas when it comes to making dinner, which I do nearly every night. The first is that I often don’t have time to spend all day in the kitchen making a meal. Instead I want dinner on the table fast.
The second is that I like to mix it up. Sure, I have my favorite meals, but I still get bored sometimes. It is so fun to get creative in the kitchen with a recipe.
Luckily, Campbell’s Soups for Easy Cooking make dinner easy, fast, and exciting. These aren’t the Campbell’s Soups you’re used to, but instead help you make a full meal with lots of flavor that can be on the table in under 30 minutes. I also love that they come in cartons instead of cans! I picked mine up at Walmart, where all the varieties were available. Even better there is a $.75 coupon available until 4/13!
They come in Savory Portobello Mushroom, Creamy Herb and Garlic with Chicken Stock, Sweet Onion, and Mexican Style Tomato so the variety of dishes you can prepare is virtually endless. By choosing different soups, proteins, vegetables, and grains, the ideas will keep coming. Dinner will never be boring again!
Though I had a lot of ideas when it came to the soups, I chose the Mexican Style Tomato to create Easy Chilaquiles. I love Mexican food so much. Those bold flavors make my taste buds happy. Plus, there are so many different textures to keep every bite exciting.
If you have never heard of Chilaquiles, they are a dish that typically uses up leftover tortillas that have gone stale. While you could use stale tortillas, not many of us have those hanging around, so regular tortilla chips make an awesome substitution, maybe even better than the original because they retain a little texture.
As soon as I poured the Mexican Style Tomato soup into the skillet for this one pot meal, the smell totally drew me in. Almost reminiscent of salsa, I knew instantly the dish would be a hit!
Once the soup was hot, I added some shredded rotisserie chicken, another great staple to have in the refrigerator for quick dinners. Then I added the tortilla chips and stirred so they were totally coated and started to soften. A little cheese finished off this delicious dish that was seriously on the table in under fifteen minutes. Score!
