Some of you asked for recipes for the 7 can soup and the cinnamon crisps that I showed in my Project 365 so I'm posting both recipes here. Both are delicious, inexpensive, and easy to make.

7 Can Soup - This is as easy as it sounds.

Ground Beef
1 Can Beef Broth
1 Can Tomato Sauce (+ 1 can water)
1 Can Rotel
1 Can Corn
1 Can Green Beans
2 Cans Ranch Style Beans

Brown the ground beef. Add all other ingredients. Simmer 20 minutes. Serve.
(This is also good topped with sour cream and/or shredded cheese.)

Cinnamon Crisps

1 Can Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
1/4 Cup Melted Butter or Margarine
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon (I like cinnamon a lot so I used a little more.)

Heat oven to 375 F. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside.

Separate dough rectangles and form a rectangle approx 6" x 14" (or two rectangles approx 6" x 7"). Press perforations together to seal. Brush with half the butter.

In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the dough.

Starting at the long side of the dough, roll it up into a log. Pinch edge to seal. With serrated knife, cut 1/2" thick slices. (You may want to refrigerate for 15 minutes if dough is too soft to cut well.) Lay each slice between two sheets wax paper and press or roll flat (approx 1/4" thick or less).

Brush with remaining butter and sprinkle remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet and bake approx 15 minutes.

Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm or cool.


1. Icing - Mix 1-2 tablespoons milk and 1/8 tsp vanilla. Add 2-4 tablespoons powdered sugar til of desired consistency. Drizzle over cinnamon crisps.

2. Press chopped nuts or dried fruits, such as dates, raisins, cherries into dough slices before baking.


Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind ~ Luke 10:27

Both sound great. Too bad I have to watch my diet. My cholesterol is up and the dr. put me on medication. I could eat the soup though.
Thanks for sharing,
AliceE. :)

Chatty Kelly said...

You make 'em and set a place for me. :-)

Ah, the joy of cooking co-op is I only cook 1 night a week. But these look good!!!!

Stephanie said...

I can't wait to try these out Edie! Thanks! (I'll go ahead and thank you from Mr P as well!)

That soup looks so doggone good!
It kinda reminds me of a taco soup.
I think I'll make this and use veggie burger crumbles for the meat.
I have been looking for some good soup recipes, and never thought of throwin a can of rotel in there. That would sure add the ZIP!
Bet it "would" be good with the sourcream and a little shredded cheese and some nacho chips for dippers? mmmmm Is it time for lunch yet? ;)

LisaShaw said...

Thank you sweet Edie for leaving prayers on my blog for my healing. I'm not there yet but on my way.

I'll come back by soon. Love ya.

Anonymous over at ADHD Me isn't me. I'm not even risking an anonymous comment for fear of having to play.

I went to the post office today to mail mine, and realized I didn't have my purse. errrr. I'll have to go Friday now. We're going to the circus tomorrow!

Yolanda said...

I am home ill today, and so I just put this all together and will let it simmer in my crockpot for an hour or so until dinner.

Looks and smells terrific. Headed to crawl back into bed. Love, Yolanda

God's girl said...

Edie, I just read your past four posts. Wow, I miss a lot when I don't read everyone's blog all the time:(

I am very impressed with the soup and the crisps, but I am more impressed with your smoking/obedience post. Wow! You totally spoke volumes to me...

I have been smoking for 15 years, and I am constantly living in the condemnation of it. I know I need to quit, and I know God wants me to quit, so all of your thoughts in that post totally could have been mine. I won't commit to quit because I, too, know I can't. I've tried...and tried...and tried...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting that story!!!!!!! I really needed to hear this today.

May God bless you for your obedience to Him, and may you continue to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit so clearly...

Love ya, Heaven

Mary Moss said...

Can you say, what I'm so having for dinner tonight?! Yummy. Thank you for sharing these recipes.

Tracy said...

Hey there Edie! Just a quick question...I want to throw that soup together this week, but in my part of the country, they don't sell "ranch style beans." Can you give me some idea of what makes them "ranch style" and maybe we can come up with a reasonable substitution? I think I'm going to try it with ground turkey. = ) Thanks!
