I am a big cheater, cheater pumpkin eater!!! I am cheating a bit on this recipe because I found a premade tortilla soup mix in the bulk section in Winco last time I was there. Of course, my little brain started going into over drive thinking about how I could work the mix into a new type of Meal in a Jar. Suddenly, the light went partially on and I had it. Chicken. Tortilla. Soup. Just like in the restaurants!
Here is my newest and bestest recipe in the whole word:
Chicken Tortilla Soup: Meal in a Jar
(recipe size for each jar)
2 cups of tortilla soup mix
1/3 cup dehydrated black beans (aka quick cook beans)
1/4 freeze dried corn
1 cup freeze dried chicken
1/4 cup freeze dried cheddar cheese (place in a baggie)
On the jar or mylar bag write: Start with 4 cups of water OR chicken broth. Cook until beans are soft.
