Store shelves are a bit scarcer these days as stay-at-home orders continue and people turn to their local grocers for essentials. But just because you might not be able to find everything on your list, that doesn’t mean you can’t still whip up some delicious new recipes. Even better, the main ingredients for these dishes are probably already sitting in the back of your pantry shelf.

So grab your canned tomatoes, veggies, chickpeas, and corn and try one of these 10 recipes.

Ten Minute Vegetable Pantry Soup

Canned beans and canned veggies make up the bulk of this super simple, healthy vegetable soup. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan, heat, and serve. It couldn’t get any easier.

A simpler take on the classic enchilada, this skillet dish is made of pantry staples that are perfect to keep on hand at all times. Canned corn, canned chicken, canned jalepeños, and canned enchilada sauce combine with rice and cheese for a tasty meal.

Canned Tuna Pasta

Canned tuna is one of those polarizing foods that people seem to either love or hate. But even if you aren’t a tuna sandwich fan, canned tuna is a surprisingly versatile protein option, as seen here when added to pasta and topped with Parmesan cheese.
