Quick Beans And Wieners Soup

We own our own business and our shop is only a few hundred feet from our home.
So going home for lunch is an everyday occurrence.
For me that means coming up with something to serve for lunch each day.
I'm not much for planning meals ahead so lunch especially, is planned on the fly.
Here is a soup I came up with last week, using what I had on hand.
Harv enjoyed it so I thought maybe you would as well.
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1 large stock celery, diced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1- 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 wieners, cut into coins
  • 1 284 ml tin condensed tomato soup
  • 1 1/2  tomato soup tins water 
  • 1 398 ml tin deep browned beans (pork and beans)
  • 1 114 ml tin mild diced green chilies
  • 1 cup corn kernels - canned or frozen
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
  • chili powder or hot sauce to taste (optional)
  1. Saute peppers, celery and onion in oil until soft
  2. Place in soup pot.
  3. Add wieners to fry pan (add a little more oil if needed) and fry until lightly browned.
  4. Place in soup pot and add remaining ingredients.
  5. Heat and stir until it comes to a simmer.  
  6. Simmer 5-19 minutes to blend flavours, stirring several times to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  7. Makes 4-6 servings.


  1. What does a tin equal in measurement? As in 1 1/4 tin water.

    1. probably referring to the tomato soup tin

    2. Yes. The tin means the can it came in. Soup tin = soup can.

    3. The average soup tin is 10 ounces which equals 1 1/4 cups

  2. Oh, I love "what's on hand" kind of hearty soups!! It's such a great way to use up what's in the fridge. I'm like you and don't plan too far ahead with meals. Another go to for me is scrambled eggs!

  3. Looks yummy! Not sure what deep browned beans are? Baked beans?

    1. My question also.

    2. I just looked it up In the Heinz-Canada site and from the ingredients it looks like what is sold as pork and beans in the USA
