Chase Away Winter Chills with Meals From Your Pantry

01/19/2015 02:32AM ● Published by Family Features

There's nothing quite like a hearty, homemade meal to help warm up those cold winter nights. And with a well-stocked pantry - or "Cantry" - delicious meals, like Turkey Green Bean Chili and Home-Style Chicken Pot Pie, are just a few cans away.

Because cans lock in foods' freshness and nutrition, stocking up on staples like canned tomatoes, green beans, peas and canned chicken means that you have access to wholesome ingredients all winter long. Plus, the more cans you store in your Cantry, the fewer last minute trips you have to make to the supermarket.

So this season, when you're searching for satisfying, heart-warming meals that you and your family can cozy up to, start by looking in your Cantry.

For more recipe inspiration and to learn how you can get cooking with cans this winter and year round, visit www.Facebook.com/CansGetYouCooking, www.Pinterest.com/CansGetUCooking and www.YouTube.com/CansGetYouCooking.
