By jazzing up a commercial soup mix, we have created a soup that tastes homemade without all the time and effort.
2 cups water
1/2 cup sliced carrot
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes
3 (10 1/2-ounce) cans low-salt chicken broth
1 (4.9-ounce) package bean medley with pasta soup mix (such as Kettle Creations)
2 cups torn spinach
How to Make It
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until the beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Add spinach, and cook an additional 5 minutes.
