I know many of us stockpiled a number of foods that donÔÇÖt go bad for a while – but now donÔÇÖt know what to do with them! I personally love incorporating canned food into my recipes just because its so easy. You can always have basic canned ingredients like tomatoes, beans, corn, etc. in your pantry to use at any time. So whether youÔÇÖre living off canned foods or just want a few new meals to try out with your stockpile, today is all about canned tomatoes.

Here are 6 EASY meals with canned tomatoes to try:
