I made up this recipe when I had no idea what to make for dinner, I had a lot of canned foods so I decided to use them. I hope this works for you as good as it works for me. Serve hot with homemade cornbread and green salad.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Puree stewed tomatoes in an electric blender or mixer. Place tomatoes, refried beans, corn, green beans, and vegetable broth in a large pot. Cook over a medium heat. Refried beans and tomatoes will cook down to create a base for the soup. Stir occasionally to prevent stickiness.

  • Add water as needed to prevent over-thickening. Add oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper, basil, parsley, and minced onion. Cover and cook until mixture is heated through. Add the onions, and continue cooking until the soup is just boiling.

It was a snap to make but the texture was gritty. My daughter and I did not care for it. My hubby said it would be better w/meat and/or pasta added to it. Read More

I just made this soup and it's great! I used refried black beans which makes the soup a darker color. I really enjoyed the crunchy corn and the smooth taste of the soup. This took about 10 minutes to make -- perfect for everyone! Read More

I liked this recipie a lot it was very easy to make. I'm on a very short bugest write now and haven't been able to go shopping in a while. I put "refried beans" in the ingredient search and came up with this. Of course I had all the ingredients. I usually change ingredients in a recipe but I didn't change a thing in this one! Read More

Great recipe and a very tasty soup! I used canned whole tomatoes instead of stewed. I also added chopped fresh carrots celery one garlic clove and an onion instead of the dried onion and garlic powder. I didn't have all the seasonings listed in the recipe so I just used 1 T. of Italian "Mrs. Dash." My family loved it! Read More

Easy to make soup with a great flavor. I used a can of Italian style peeled tomato's instead of the stewed. Used frozen corn instead of canned. Didn't drain the green beans but I think that I should have. Came out a bit thin when I finished cooking it. There just wasn't a whole lot to it (even though it tasted very good). It needed something else (potatoes carrots rice beans noodles etc). I chose to throw in a can of white whole potatoes (I chopped them up some) and some chopped carrot. My husband thinks that it could have used more onion. Tasted great with cornbread. Read More
