Food Storage Dinner

I have always had this thing about being prepared. I always have a purse full of stuff (tooth brushers, hand sanitizer, first aid items etc...) sometimes i get made fun of for it but it seems like the ones who make fun of me are the ones who need those items. ANYWAYS. when i was a kid i read this book, Z for Zachariah and a few years ago i read the book, The Road and both these books have just made me more of a preparedness freak. With all the natural disasters happening around the world in the last several years it makes me even MORE of a freak. Food storage is something our family has always had and we try to use up the old stuff before it goes bad. Here is a fun recipe to help use up some of that food storage that might need to be replaced soon.

Mexican Corn Chowder:
2 cans refried beans
2 cans corn (include the water)
2 cans precooked chicken
2-4 Cups Chicken broth
1 can black beans (drained)
Taco seasoning
onion powder
garlic powder
chili powder
sour cream

basically what you do is throw everything into a pot (except sour cream and cheese) and let it simmer until hot. at the end, add the sour cream and cheese. you can also top it with tortilla chips (if you're into that sort of thing ;)).

it's pretty good. very hearty. i made it tonight for dinner and brought some to my grandparents in the nursing home and by the time i got home i just wanted cherries so i'll save my bowl for tomorrow.
