I make this soup with canned prep items I keep on hand all the time.

6 quart or larger pot
4 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup water
3 cans roast beef with gravy (use water to rinse cans into pot)
3 cans diced tomatoes (not stewed! yuk)
3 cans diced potatoes
1 can diced carrots
1 can young sweet peas
1 can whole kernel corn
onion flakes to taste
pepper to taste
There is usually enough salt in the canned goods, but add a pinch if you like

Empty the cans into the pot. Bring to boil stirring occasionally. Turn heat down to simmer and let simmer for two hours or so to blend flavors.

Serve with crackers.

Used to be just 10 cans, but it has evolved over time. Three cans of roast beef is better, but it is certainly acceptable with 2, and 2 potatoes.

Just my opinion.
Jerry, that is almost the same as my "Homemade 'canned' soup". I usually use leftover meat from other meals, chunked up roast or turkey and often use frozen veggies. I put in a can of store brand Rotell, it reduces the need for salt and pepper. I put some, 1/2 to 1 cup, of pearl barley in at the start.

Canyon Cat, Kelly's use to make a decent can tamale, I haven't had any in the last few years. I don't like anything put out by Hormel or Dinty Moore. I don't like Chef Boyardee either, too sweet. Most other canned pastas that are not aimed at children, sweet, are eatable with enough garlic powder and cheese.

If you have family that doesn't like canned carrots, add some pancake syrup to them before heating them up.

I've heard a lot of people say that American (USA) food tends to be sweetish, especially pasta.
I get jars of sauce, I have to add some sugar to make it taste right (to me).

Chef Boyardee was popular in WWII. I think a lot of ration packs had them as generic canned spaghetti. a fair amount got shared with the natives I'm sure.

My sister adds some grated carrot to her pasta tomato sauce to sweeten it up, the gratings just disappear.

I ran across this, similar to Jerry's.

Canned tamales? That is just so wrong on so many levels. I make my own tamales.

So do I usually, but I have even canned my homemade tamales just to have them ready when I want them in a hurry.

For long-term storage, it's FD shredded cheddar cheese. It is a fabulous snack right out of the can. Other luxuries include coconut cream and milk (Trader Joe's is fabulous), pineapple and pineapple juice, condiments like Worcestershire and bulldog, hard candy in various flavors, Lindt milk chocolate with nuts (must be rotated often-- Yippee!!), canned and TJ's clarified butter, and green coffee beans to roast as needed.

Corned beef hash. i cook it over medium heat stirring constantly till it all hits the color I want. Sometimes I put a little Bullseye BBQ sauce in it.

For you tomale people the best I can do on the beef is $1.69 but Dollar Tree carries the chicken ones for $1.

For the mor adventurous of you one thing the wife and I make every now and then that can be made just from canned preps that sounds nasty but tastes good. Mix a can of either corn or creamed corn with a can of tuna and heat it up. Dump over baked or mashed tators. I like a little steak seasoning or Lawrys on mine. Shredded cheese of course makes anything better if you have it handy.

This is the stuff any corned beef lovers should try to find:
http://www.anzfjfoods.com/cannedmeats.htm

For St. Paddy's Day, stuff loosely rolled ZerGut jarred cabbage leaves with a mixture of either canned corned beef or corned mutton, dehydrated onions, dehydrated diced carrots, canned rutabaga cubes, and papa seca (Peruvian dried cooked criolla potato chunks). If you've got any golden beets or parsnips you can throw some of those in, too. Soak dehydrated veggies in a little broth before adding to stuffing. Season mixture to taste (I like to use a little Szeged steak rub or rib rub) and simmer in a light beef and vegetable broth just to cover for 30 minutes. Very good with a little mustard or horseradish cream sauce made with the broth left in the pot.

+1 for Dinty Moore beef stew. It's the perfect canned feed. Beef with potatoes and carrots and tomato sauce. I mix some canned corn in with it. Put your favorite hot sauce on it and you have a great meal.

Give or take the TVP and preservatives and half a day's sodium per cup.
But this is supposedly a "guilty pleasures" thread, so that just means it qualifies.

No love for B&M canned bread?

After a couple of months on MRE/rations, making some toast (to hold the peanut butter) from canned bread is such a treat....

I keep some B&M. It's good for breakfast toast, to put under fruit for a dessert, and with cream cheese or peanut butter.

For other bread uses, I have canned German rye, pumpernickel, etc. It's a pity any of it is only rarely to be found here.

I have no idea what half that is but it sounds yummy!
