Halloween soups!

This is a picture of me and my dad and the awesome pumpkin beer I had. I'm so not a beer drinker, but I actually drank a whole bottle of this stuff.

This used to be my favorite soup, well before I tried the pumpkin. It has kind of become tradition for my mom to make this around Halloween. This recipe came from a Campbell's soup recipe book.

Tuna-Tortellini Soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp garlic powder
2 cups frozen cheese filled tortellini
1 cup frozen whole sweet kernel corn
1 1/2 cups milk
1 small can tuna

In saucepan combine soup, broth, basil and garlic. Cover, over high heat, bring to boil. Add tortellini and corn. Reduce heat to low. Cover cook 10 min. Add milk and tuna, heat through, stirring occasionally.

I am so happy my mom made this because it is so good. I will definitely make it again. My mom found the recipe, but once again it's from Gooseberry Patch
