Everything But The Kitchen Sink Soup

I've seen many blog posts recently from those participating in the Eat from the Pantry Challenge stating they are just about out of food and it is becoming hard to come up with meals. Times like this is when I make soup using all the odds and ends I can find in my house.

The basic concept is protein, liquid, veggies, and starch. This week I made soup using leftover spaghetti sauce, sloppy joes, beef burrito filling, a can of beef broth, random bits and pieces of veggies and beans from my freezer, and some noodles. It was delicious and helped me use up some of the leftovers that I was getting tired of. Also, the beef burritos turned out a bit too spicy for our liking but in soup it was just right.

Sometimes I will freeze similar ingredient leftovers just for times like this. It makes a quick, warm meal and hardly costs a thing.
