I’m sure you have all heard the story of  The Stone Soup.  Well whenever I am having trouble thinking of something to make for dinner Stone Soup usually works out great.  I just go through the freezer and cabinets and find whatever I can and through it in a pot.

So here is what My Stone soup consisted of tonight.


  • 3 Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Carton Chicken Broth
  • 1 Can Black Beans
  • 1 Can Pinto Beans
  • 1 Can Succotash (Corn and Lima Beans)
  • 1 Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 1/8 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 2 Packets Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Cup Elbow Pasta.


1. Cook chicken in a little water and 1/2 the broth until it falls apart easily.

2. Add the rest of the broth and everything else and let is cook for an hour or so then bring to a boil and add pasta.

3. Let it cook again for about 10 minutes.
