Creating healthy homemade soups from scratch is something that my family loves to consume. One of my family's favorite dinner meals is what we call "goulash". It's a mixture of whatever I can find in our pantry that's edible (while not really, but you get the idea). Taking a few homemade, canned jars of vegetables (green beans, purple hull peas, potatoes, and corn) and mixing in meat and/or rice, is our favorite quick, homemade soup. But when time is limited, I like to have on-hand some delicious, nutritious store-bought soups. But have you checkout some of their ingredients? Not good.
Try Campbell's Slow Kettle Style Soups When There's No Time For Homemade Soup
I was given the opportunity to try Campbell's Slow Kettle style soups (which I received a free sample via Smiley.com in exchange for an honest review). Campbell's Slow Kettle soups are made with no preservatives and ingredients you can see and tell what they are! I was sent their Southwest-Style Chicken Chili. But with my five children excited about trying something new, I decided to purchase two more varieties - Tomato & Sweet Basil Bisque and Tuscan-Style Chicken & White Bean.
These kettle style soups come in servings of 2 that you can microwave the soups within the container. But since our family does not use a microwave, I had to cook each of them separately; and my five children and I decided to have our taste test(s)!
Two members picked the Southwest-Style Chicken Chili as their favorite. It had noticeable chicken, black beans and sweet corn. Our family loves eating black beans, so I would say we're "experts" in what black beans are suppose to taste like. And these were good! The flavors were a great combination and was very tasty.
While three of them loved the Tomato & Sweet Basil Bisque and chose it as their favorite. We love having tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich, but this kettle style soup was delicious (even without the grilled cheese sandwiches)! The smell of the tomato and sweet basil reminded me of my summer herb garden. The flavor was bold, but not to over powering.
One (ME) chose the Tuscan-Style Chicken and White Bean as their favorite. All of them liked the taste but just didn't chose as a favorite. But, I love white bean chili. These combo flavors was heavenly. I was glad they didn't want seconds because I was able to enjoy most of the soup myself. All three had great flavor and the ingredients blended nicely together to make a perfect meal.
I would say that our family would not mind having some Campbell's Slow Kettle style soups waiting in the pantry for days that I need a quick meal. And it's mommy approved.

- Southwest-Style Chicken Chili with Black Beans & Sweet Corn
