Ham and Rice Bake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine a can of condensed cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese in a large pot. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Stir in a thawed package of California-blend vegetables, a cup of cooked rice, a cup of cubed deli ham, and a sliced leek (just the white and pale green part – compost the dark green part unless you want to make soup out if it).

Transfer to a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup more of cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes.

 

Zesty Tomato Soup

Combine 2 cans of condensed tomato soup, 2 2/3 cups of water, and 2 tsp of chili powder in a pot. Heat through. Garnish with oyster crackers and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

 

Instant Impromptu Soup Tips!

Create instant soup by combining leftover vegetables with chicken or beef broth in a blender and processing until smooth.

OR

Add chicken or beef broth to leftover rice and stir in some lightly sauteed vegetables.

Heat just until warmed through.

Make soup out of leftovers and then freeze to eat on a later date.
