7 Can Soup Recipe - Pioneer Woman

Just wanted to share another amazing recipe from Pioneer Woman. We are yet to try one of her recipes that we don't enjoy. They are all so yummy! 

7 Can Soup serves 6 and has a bit of a taco flavor. It is easy to make and even our boys (ages 11 & 9) love having it for supper. 


  • 1 can chili (she calls for meat only chili but we make it with beans) 
  • 1 can (15 ounce) Kidney Beans
  • 1 can (15 ounce) Pinto Beans 
  • 1 can (15 ounce) Black Beans
  • 1 can (15 ounce) Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounce) Corn 
  • 1 can (10 ounce) Rotel
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Velveeta Cheese - Her recipe says 8 ounce.. we like to use a little more.  

To Make:

Without draining any of the cans, empty into a large pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper as needed. 

Dice the cheese and stir into the soup until melted. It's that easy!!!! Serve immediately! 


Kingdom Family Devotional - Book Review

Book Description: 

This new devotional from Dr. Tony Evans and his son Jonathan Evans will provide both single and married parents with a resource tool to maximize those family devotional times, such as the dinner hour or bedtime. The family virtues–based devotional provides 52 separate topics, one for each week of the year, and five devotionals within each topic that will guide devotional times Monday through Friday. This is a wonderful way to build a spiritually strong family week by week, day after day―a perfect way to head into the weekend. Topics range from the basics of the faith―such as salvation, spiritual warfare, prayer, forgiveness, and discipleship―to essentials of living as followers of Christ: money, prayer, family, friends, and priorities. The subject matter is simplified so even young children can grasp important concepts. This is a perfect resource for busy families.

My Review:

Where has this book been all my life... I am a homeschool Mother of two young boys and I'm always looking for new curriculum, books, etc.. to help our family learn about the love of the Lord together. Then came along this book. The answer to my prayers. This a great read for any family to enjoy (regardless of the age of your child). The book is laid out in different weeks, such as the first weeks lessons are about love, the next week moves onto respect and so on. There are 52 weeks covered in this book.. all with different topics. These are short, easy reads for your family to enjoy. Our family usually reads them during or after supper each night. There are 5 days composed in each week. Kingdom Family Devotional offers scriptures to read and memorize, lessons to discuss as a family and even hands on projects to work and learn together. 

This is a wonderful book. Be sure to buy one soon... you and your family will love it!
