leftover meat

We are getting close to grocery shopping day and as it usually goes, we have very little left to eat. So tonight, I was looking for what to feed the kids for dinner and found a can of chicken noodle soup in the back of the pantry.

I was really tired today, for some reason, so really wanted to stick with a one dish meal, so I proceeded with the doctoring.

This was a huge hit with both kids and Ian even at the veggies. Huge! He refuses almost all veggies.

A Better Can of Chicken Noodle Soup

1 can chicken noodle soup
1/4 cup small cubes of the meat of your choice*
1/4 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup finely diced carrots (I chopped up those new bagged shredded carrots and it worked great)

Put it all in a small pan or microwavable bowl. Heat and Serve.

* I used left over pork taco meat and it added just a little bit of Mexican flavor to the soup, which they loved. Any leftover meat with a little seasoning on it would work great for this, ground meat, chicken, pork, whatever. If the meat isn’t seasoned or you have to cook fresh, try adding just a pinch of taco seasoning or some Mrs dash or something.
