So what are you waiting for? Grab the can opener, and let’s get to it!

13 Delicious Dishes You Can Make With A Can of Tomato Soup

1. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Pasta Bake

In my opinion, there is nothing more nostalgic or delicious than grilled cheese and tomato soup.

But that meal, while easy, can be a little tedious to make. 

So, that’s why I love this delicious pasta bake!

It invokes all the same feelings and delicious flavors as the classic cheesy, soupy meal. But it comes together so much faster. 

Plus, it has bacon. And bacon makes everything better. 

This recipe features tender penne pasta, salty bacon crumbles, and diced tomatoes and peppers (Rotel).

You’ll toss all of that goodness in seasoned tomato soup. Then, cover it with cheese and bake it for 20 minutes.

The result is one of the most delicious pasta dishes you’ll ever try.

2. Tomato Soup Meatloaf

Meatloaf might not be the prettiest dinner out there, but it sure is flavorful! Especially this tomato soup meatloaf. 

It’s made with Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Basil and Oregano Soup, and it’s fabulous.

Aside from the soup, this recipe has all the typical meatloaf ingredients. 

It has breadcrumbs for texture and moisture, eggs to bind everything together, and Parmesan for saltiness.

Plus garlic and onions because, well, everything savory needs garlic and onions, right? 

And, of course, it’s not meatloaf without some meat. This recipe uses ground beef, but you could use ground turkey to keep it lean. 

Serve with a side of mashed potatoes and roasted veggies. It’s “Mmm, mmm, good.” 

3. Mom’s Classic Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

If you have Eastern European heritage, you’ve probably had cabbage rolls at least once in your life.

They make up a classic dish with simple, flavorful ingredients. And using canned tomato soup makes the plate even easier.

Like any good cabbage roll, these ones are filled with a meat and rice mixture. It has beef, pork, cooked rice, aromatics, binders, herbs, and seasonings. 

The blend of tomato soup, tomato paste, ketchup, eggs, salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and parsley isn’t elaborate, but it gets the job done.

Everything is stuffed into boiled cabbage leaves, burrito-style, and smothered in tomato soup. 

Bake everything for 3-4 hours. Then, you’re ready to enjoy!

4. 4-Ingredient Hamburger Casserole

Four simple ingredients. One super tasty dinner that the whole family will love.

This casserole has beef, cheese, tomato soup, and pasta shells. So it’s rich, hearty, meaty, and kid-approved.

How good does that sound?! And it’s so easy, you can make it on any busy weeknight. 

5. Shipwreck Casserole 

There’s some speculation as to where this casserole gets its name.

Some say it’s because all the ingredients break down into a rather messy dish. Others think it’s so delicious, it’ll wreck you for all other casseroles.

But here’s what I think: each delicious mouthful is like finding treasure lost in a sea of sauce!

Whatever you call it, that combo of potatoes, beef, onions, celery, and tomatoes is hard to beat.

6. Amish Country Casserole

If you love beef stroganoff, you’ll love this casserole, too!

Like stroganoff, it’s savory, hearty, creamy, and wonderfully tasty. And it even features beef and egg noodles in a creamy sauce.

There’s no sour cream in this recipe, though! Just some condensed soups instead.  

7. Easy Beef Enchiladas

Easy, cheesy, and full of flavor, these beef enchiladas are the perfect weeknight meal.

They come together quickly and can easily be made ahead of time to save you on prep.

These easy enchiladas feature flour tortillas stuffed with sautéed ground beef, onions, and garlic. They’re also loaded with your favorite kind of cheese. 

They’ll sit in a creamy enchilada sauce mixture that features cream of mushroom soup, tomato soup, and premade enchilada sauce.

It’s so flavorful! And with the added cheese on top, it’s bubbly, gooey, and to die for.

8. Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Prefer chicken to beef? Try these enchiladas instead!

Between the succulent chicken chunks mixed with Mexican-style tomato soup and cheese, they’re quick and oh-so-scrummy.

Stuff the filling into tortillas and smother over the enchilada sauce and extra cheese. Delish!

9. Easy American Hamburger Goulash

Juicy beef, chewy macaroni, chunky tomatoes, and sweet-savory tomato soup? Sign me up!

Goulash is a warming dinner everyone will love. And it’s super budget-friendly too!

10. Easy Homemade Chili

This might be the easiest chili you’ll ever make.

The only “hard part” is browning the beef and onions. After that, you just dump the rest of the ingredients in and let it do its thing. 

It’s super savory and full of Tex-Mex flavors. Serve with chips, sour cream, and plenty of cheese!

11. Beef Tomato Soup 

This delicious dish is like goulash or Hamburger Helper in soup form, which makes it better than both, in my humble opinion.

But then again, I just really love soup. 

And this one is so hearty and comforting. It’s a wonderful choice for a quick dinner, and it tastes even better the next day. 

It has thick, tender macaroni, flavorful beef, and plenty of seasonings. Onions and peppers add extra nutrients and extra delicious flavor. 

The soup base is made with a combination of condensed tomato soup and beef broth. Hello, umami! 

12. Stuffed Peppers

I love stuffed peppers! They’re wonderfully flavorful and textural and, honestly, pretty healthy.

So, what’s not to love?

You’ll start with basic stuffed pepper ingredients: green bell peppers, ground beef, rice, tomatoes, alliums, seasonings, and cheese.

Plus, Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. 

Once you’ve cooked the filling and stuffed the peppers, top them with the soup and some cheese!

As everything cooks, the soup mingles with the juices from the pepper and the filling. 

Substitute the rice with cauliflower rice for a low-carb version. 

13. Porcupine Meatballs

Don’t worry: just like there’s no dog in hotdogs, there’s no porcupine in these tasty meatballs.

Instead, they’re named for their spiky appearance. 

But these spikes won’t hurt you! They’re actually pretty soft, made with rice. They only look like they have a spiny texture.  

Whether you need meatballs for snacking, for pasta, or for sandwiches, consider these ones. They are absolutely delicious, with a super fun texture. 

Porcupine meatballs are made with beef, uncooked rice, eggs, garlic, onion, herbs, and seasonings.

They simmer for an hour in a rich and mouth-watering tomato sauce that’s a mix of tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, and water.

The sauce thickens as it cooks, and it seeps into the meatballs. It is utterly fantastic.
