I love tomato soup so much that I try it any restaurant that says they make it themselves. I’ve found a few hits and a lot of misses. Of my two favorite places one isn’t even in this state and the other is too expensive for as often as I’d like to have it. Plus, who knows if they really made it themselves or what they used to make it. Tonight, I finally solved those concerns by making it myself! Why did I wait so long? It wasn’t hard at all and it was good! So, tonight’s dinner was quick homemade tomato soup and cheesy Texas toast MANWICH for everyone. Everyone loved it! Let me tell you how easy it is to make it.
The ingredients are simple, they are probably things you have on hand right now. Did you spot the disappearing act? The white dishes that look empty have salt, sugar and baking soda in them. A little bit of sugar, as well as some baking soda can help reduce acidity, so that’s why I’m using them. You don’t need much!
Besides those things, you’ll need: onions, garlic, 4 – 14.5 oz cans of Hunt’s Stewed tomatoes, 1 can of Hunt’s tomato paste, pepper, beef stock (or chicken stock), basil, thyme and smoked paprika. What’s really great about this recipe is that you can add or subtract any of the spices for a taste that’s perfect for you and your family.
Hunt’s canned tomato products made this recipe easy! I always have a variety of their tomato products in my pantry. That’s how dinner comes together quickly many nights! We’re talking spaghetti, chili, soups, casseroles, all kinds of things.

I love to use MANWICH to create sloppy joe’s. It’s another simple and flavorful way to put dinner on the table without a ton of work! Want to change it up a bit? Add different cheeses and breads!
I simply followed the directions on the can, added provolone cheese and served it on Texas toast. Easy!
This was a super busy day for my family so these fast recipes really made the evening go smoothly. I bought everything I needed at Walmart, including the Texas toast which I can’t find anywhere else! Hey, when you’re looking for MANWICH try the Canned Meat section. I had a hard time finding it but a nice Walmart employee helped me out today. YAY!
I’d love to hear about your favorite quick meal!
