Drummond shared her 7-can soup recipe in a 2015 blog post on The Pioneer Woman website. The recipe also gets an upgrade with melty cheese, so it’s just eight total ingredients.

“I made this soup on my Food Network show a few weeks ago, and it’s seriously one of those recipes that makes a person say phrases like, ‘Uh…could you repeat that?’ and ‘Whaaaaa?’ and ‘Crazytown!’ and other questions/exclamations that convey surprise over how such a simple list of ingredients could result in something so, so good,” she wrote.

“7-Can Soup has been around for a long time, and no two recipes are identical, but they basically amount to this: 7 cans of whatever you want. Don’t drain the cans. Just violently throw them into the pot,” Drummond continued.

The Pioneer Woman star said she stirs in cheese at the end and jokingly warned, “My choice of cheese is a little intimidating in its level of sophistication, so I apologize in advance. Not.”

Drummond’s soup recipe is a simple go-to when you’re short on time and inspiration

Drummond loves an easy recipe with store-bought shortcuts and her 7-can soup recipe is all about that. She shared the canned items she used in her recipe, but said, “you can change it up, swap, sub, switch… whatever cans you’d like to use!”

Drummond noted her “crazy choices,” which included: canned chili, canned corn, canned black beans, canned pinto beans, canned kidney beans, diced tomatoes, and Rotel diced tomatoes with diced green chilies.

“Everything will all make sense in a minute or two, when I actually add an eighth ingredient to the 7-can soup that isn’t even a canned ingredient at all, so come to think of it, it won’t make sense in a minute or two,” she noted.

The recipe couldn’t be easier — you don’t even have to drain the liquid from the cans! Drummond poured the contents of the cans into a pot and heated everything “to a gentle boil” before reducing the heat and simmering the soup for 10 to 15 minutes.

Then The Pioneer Woman star shared her final unfussy step that makes all the difference. “And then? Throw in a hunk of Velveeta,” she explained. “Reduce the heat to low and stir the soup until the Velveeta is totally melted. It’ll turn the base gorgeously creamy and you’ll want to dive right in. You will!”

‘The Pioneer Woman’ star called the recipe ‘a pantry miracle’

While demonstrating how to make the soup on an episode of The Pioneer Woman, Drummond shared that she was “whipping up one of my very favorite and easiest pantry recipes but there’s only one …read more
