When the weather cools and cooking dinner means comforting mains, we turn to hearty soups, cheesy casseroles and chili.

But first we turn to the pantry, your best friend when it comes to cooking dinner in the fall. Cans of steam packed fresh tomatoes, a variety of beans, and a few different pastas make dinner a cinch to get on the table.

Cans of American grown diced tomatoes truly anchor these dinner recipes: With unforgettable true tomato flavor and nothing artificial, they make the meal time and time again. Let’s get cooking!

    Rotisserie chicken soup is our go to easy, warming meal. Use the carcass to make a really flavorful broth (after roasting in the oven and simmering for a few hours with a roasted mirepoix, keeping the foam removed, strained and reduced. Easy warm up the stock add diced onions, carrots and celery along with the shredded chicken and maybe some noodles if your not counting carbs and it’s some of the best soup you can get.
