7 Can Chicken Soup

When we say this 7 can dump soup couldn’t be easier, it seriously could. Not. Be. Easier. Cans, broth, seasonings. Dump, simmer, done.

Dinner in a flash that is filling and delicious! Depending on the types of vegetables and beans you use, this soup can transform from a traditional vegetable soup into a fiesta blend, something similar to chili, or anything else you want.

This is a great base to play with combinations and flavors using the same method, just different ingredients. Everything goes into the pot to simmer and dinner is on the table in under an hour.

Add some broccoli casserole or naan bread into the mix and you’ve got a hearty meal with practically zero effort.

Quick Tips

  • When dicing the sweet potatoes, try to cut all the pieces the same size. Otherwise, they will not cook evenly in the oven.
  • Sausage can be salty, so it’s recommended that you try this recipe with a low-sodium sausage and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sweet potato hash can be made in advance and kept in your freezer for up to 30-days provided it’s properly stored.
  • Use your favorite sausage. Some ideas are Italian sausage, apple sausage, chicken sausage, or maple sausage for a slightly sweet flavor.
  • Add scrambled or fried eggs to the hash.
  • Stir in some kale or spinach for added color and greens.

How to Store Leftover Soup:

Storage: Store any leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days.

Freeze: Leftover soup freezes well. Pour cooked and cooled soup into freezer bags. Lay flat in the freezer and the soup will stay fresh for about 2 months.

Thaw in the fridge before reheating.

The simple answer: it’s a recipe made from 7 different cans of ingredients resulting in an amazing and flavorful dish.

The more indepth answer: it’s a soup that uses 7 cans of vegetables, beans, broth, and protein to create a unique soup that’s full of flavor while being inexpensive. It ranges from chicken and vegetables to chicken taco soup and everything in between.

You can even go full vegetable or vegetable with beans for added protein. Add a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, a swirl of heavy cream, or spoonful of sour cream for creaminess. 

We also love to add crushed tortilla chips, chopped green onions, and diced avocados, too. The options are endless.

To make a 7 can soup that’s vegetarian, simply swap out the chicken broth for low-sodium vegetable broth and substitute the canned chicken for your favorite canned beans or vegetables. Kidney beans work well in place of the chicken!

Absolutely! Dump everything into the slow cooker and let the soup simmer on low for 3 to 4 hours and you’re set for dinner. No watching the stove required.
