Chicken Taco Soup, Quick Weeknight Meal

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. quick meal ideas. easy meals. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas

Making dinner can be such a pain some nights, right? I know on a weekday when everyone is gone at school, work, sports games and practices, it can be hard to plan a good meal. Sitting down to dinner is important to us, but as the kids get older, sometimes that is not possible. On those nights, I love that this can be ready and warmed up as they get home and get a chance to eat. This is a family favorite in our house and one of the easiest meals to make.

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. easy meals. quick meal ideas. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas, ingredients

Recipe:

1 pound cooked, shredded chicken (could also used canned)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 packet taco seasoning mix

1 can chili beans

1 can beans (I have used many different kinds and they all taste great!)

2 cans of water

Drain and rinse your can of beans, but NOT your chili beans.

Add all to a pot and mix together, making sure your cream soups aren’t lumpy. Bring to a low boil over medium high heat. You are ready to serve.

We enjoy it with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, but you could use any toppings here. It is great scooped up with some tortilla chips, that is my kids’ favorite way to eat it.

This seems to be one meal that everyone will eat and enjoy, which in a family can be hard to find something everyone agrees on!

This also freezes well, so double everything and freeze half for later.

 French Bread Pizza ~ Easy Make Ahead Camping Recipe

When I go camping I like to have easy meals, but I also like to have warm hearty meals that will fill my kids tummies.  I love camping recipes that can be prepped and made ahead of time, this French Bread Pizza recipe is one of our families favorite campfire recipes. These french bread pizzas can be made before you even leave for your trip, I like to then freeze them. Keep them in the cooler and then when you are ready to cook them toss them right on the coals of the fire to cook.

camping menu recipe ideas, french bread pizza made on the campfire, camping hacks, dinner ideas for outdoor cookingTo make this recipe you will need:

  • French Bread (or mini french bread loaves)
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza or marinara sauce
  • Pizza toppings ( pepperoni, canadian bacon, olives, pineapple, mushrooms, bell peppers, sausage)
  • Aluminum Foil (heavy duty)
  • Gallon sized ziploc bags (to store them in)

camping menu recipe ideas, french bread pizza made on the campfire, camping hacks, dinner ideas for outdoor cookingCut your french bread in half, spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese on the top and bottom side. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on top of the cream cheese. Layer your pizza toppings and cheese, add the top back on your french bread. Wrap with heavy duty foil, I like to make sure it is wrapped at least two times. This helps it heat more even and avoid being burned.

Easy Camping Recipes ~ French Bread Pizza

I store these in a large gallon ziploc bag, since ice in coolers often melt and leak. The ziploc back will help keep them dry until you are ready to cook them. I then put them in the freezer,  before the ice chest orcooler to help keep them cool on your trip.  Make sure they are thawed before you put them on the fire to cook. It is best to put them on the coals of the fire (instead of the flames). Turn them a few times to help them cook evenly, about 5-8 minutes on the fire and you should have a hot and yummy french bread pizza!
