This is one of those recipes where you’ll be saying “what, are you kidding me?” It will completely baffle you at how easy it is and how amazing it tastes.
Apparently 7-can soup has been around for sometime now and everyone’s recipes are a little different, but what they all boil down to is dumping 7 cans of whatever into a large pot. There, done, that’s it. Can you hardly even stand it? I am in love with how easy this soup is and I am even more in love with how delicious it is.
Like I said before, there are a lot of recipes for 7-Can soup out there but I used The Pioneer Woman’s because I completely trust her judgment when it comes to food, she definitely knows her stuff! The good thing about this soup is how versatile it is. Adjust it to your family’s tastes. If you don’t like black beans swap them out for something else. I did put my Rotel tomatoes and diced tomatoes in my blender for a few pulses just to keep the peace . . .I didn’t want to hear “what are these red chunks?” from some of my boys (um, Braydon!).
I’m telling you, you won’t believe how good this is until you taste it. My boys absolutely LOVED it and I mean really LOVED it! You’ve gotta give it a try and see for yourself how good it is.Print

This soup is so riduculously easy and tastes amazing!
- 1 can Chilli with no beans
- 1 can ((15-oz) Kidney Beans)
- 1 can ((15- oz) Pinto Beans)
- 1 can ((15 -oz. Size) Black Beans)
- 1 can ((15-oz) Diced Tomatoes)

- 1 can ((10-Oz) Rotel)
- Salt And Pepper (, to taste)
- 8 ounces (, weight Velveeta, Cubed)
- In a large pot, add chilli, kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, corn and rotel (DON”T DRAIN ANY OF THE CANS).
- Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to bring all the flavors together. Add salt and pepper as needed.
- Cut the cheese into cubes and stir it into the soup until melted. Serve immediately.
I know there are some Velveeta haters out there so if you’re one of them swap it out for some Monterey Jack or another cheese that will give it a creamy texture.

This was fabulous!!!!! My family thought I must have spent hours on this soup because it was so delicious. Little did they know I just had to open a bunch of cans!!! This was a HUGE hit at my house!!! Easy and very tasty:)
Pretty crazy how good it is and how SIMPLE it is to make! No one ever has to know how easy it is :)!
I was pretty skeptical, but now I’m a believer. This is very good soup. I pureed the tomatoes because one of us doesn’t like chunky cooked tomatoes. I rinsed the beans and bought ‘no salt added’ corn, in order to cut back on the sodium. We never missed it at all, the soup was very well-seasoned. Our favorite texture was the black beans, so we may ditch the other beans and use 3 cans of black beans next time. The only tomatoes I had (besides Ro-Tel) were fire-roasted, and they made it just a bit too spicy, but it was still very good.
I’m convinced this soup can be endlessly adapted to suit any taste.
Hi Sandy, thanks for the comment. I too purée the tomatoes because a couple of my boys won’t eat chunks. I love how adaptable this soup is too. So happy you enjoyed it. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year, Jodi!
I reheated some of the soup today for lunch and have it say, it’s even better as leftovers.
I agree, it is even better the second day!

This really is the best soup! And I love your big family of boys 🙂

Forgot to buy the Velveeta one time and was fresh out of any cheese in the fridge. I did have a can of Campbell’s cheddar cheese soup which I added to the pot, without diluting it, and it worked great.
That’s so good to know Patricia, thanks! I actually usually have a can of the cheddar cheese soup, but not always the Velveeta. Thanks again.

I am planning to prepare the Pioneer Woman’s 7-Can Soup tonight. We have a recipe that is very similar called Taco Soup. Instead of chili and Velveeta, we use a packet of taco seasoning, a packet of Ranch dressing mix, and top the soup with shredded cheddar and tortilla chips. Like 7-Can Soup, you can change things up.
Hi Gary! That sounds so delicious, I am definitely going to try that. Thanks for sharing!
We love this soup! My wife and I are carnivores, so we add a pound of lean ground beef, and it’s awesome!
Thanks Mark! Great idea to add some ground beef, I will definitely try that. I love how fast and easy this soup is!
