I have a great store near me that I enjoy going to for the savings. They may have a lot of different shipments every week on a lot of their items but for me that’s half the fun, then through in a great bargain and now you may understand why it’s one of my favorite stores. So, when I was at this store looking for deals for the items that were on my list, I came across a seven pound can refried beans at a price you’d pay for the small can, I couldn’t pass it up.
The only problem was to use up the can without making my family sick or ready to take over the cooking, or maybe that wouldn’t be too bad, I could use a vacation.
I decided to start off with a soup, so I came up with this soup with hope to take care of half the can but turned out I wasn’t that lucky, but almost and I did come up with tasty soup even my grandson liked.
