Semi-Homemade Tilapia Corn Chowder | Uses Dole Garden Soup


We aren’t big soup eaters, but several week’s ago I couldn’t resist picking up a package of Dole Garden Soup when it was better than Free.  I figured I could use it as a base of meal.  My original thought was to combine it with chicken.  However, I got a bit more adventurous with it.

I used tilapia and quinoa with it.  Both of these items are ones that are healthy for you, but not necessarily the kiddos favorites.  I am happy to report that they all ate it without a complaint.  In my opinion, if you didn’t know the Tilapia was in it, you wouldn’t notice it, in fact my 13 year old didn’t know at all.

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 4 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 spoonful minced garlic
  • 26 oz container Dole Garden Soup, Sweet Corn variety
  • 6 Tilapia fillets, cut into bitsize
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1½ cup Cooked Quinoa
  • ½ cup to ¾ cup milk
  • Green Onion
  1. Brown the Bacon
  2. Drain Most of the Grease (not all)
  3. Cook Garlic and celery in pot until transluscent
  4. Pour in Dole Garden Soup and remaining ingredients and stir
  5. Cook until fish is cooked through. about 5 minutes If you continue to simmer and stir the fish will break apart and not be recognized. (Great if you have picky fish eaters)
  6. Top with diced Green Onions
I had some extra cooked quinoa so I made a batch of Qunioa Muffins with Chocolate Chips.  The kids ate these with no complaints.  At least I know two ways now that my kids will eat quinoa.

Since I took help from a box of soup, the meal was super quick too.  Gotta love a healthy, fast and frugal meal.
