Chicken Tortilla Soup Mix in a Jar

Chicken Tortilla Soup Mix in a Jar

 Gifts in a jar are great to give to those on your Christmas list. Everyone loves getting them, and it helps you to not overspend on Christmas. At least, for me it does! Times are tough and most of us need to keep an eye on how much money we spend on Christmas gifts.

You can give the Chicken Tortilla Soup Mix all by itself, or you can put it in a cute basket with a can of shredded/diced chicken, and a can of diced tomatoes. By adding those two items to a basket the recipient of your gift will have everything they need to make the soup. I didn’t get a chance to make a a cute printable to go with these for you. You can copy the instructions below for making the soup, either write it on a card, or make some sort of label to include with the jar. You don’t want to forget this part, or they won’t know how to make it.

    What a great gift! I love practical gifts like this, both giving and receiving them, because the holiday season is so busy it’s great to have little time savers like this on hand!

  2. Cynthia says

    What a wonderful gift. I’ve been looking for something just like this to give the neighbors this year. Thank you for linking this to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I look forward to seeing you next week.

    I received a Tortilla Soup Mix in a jar as a Christmas gift. I made the soup according to the directions and it was so delicious. I want to make some of these and give as gifts for next Christmas. I searched the web and found your web site. The recipe you have here sounds the same, except mine came in a large mouth quart jar. The directions said to add 10 cups of water and it made 12 cups of soup. The instructions were printed on a label on the front of the jar. A circle of Christmas themed fabric and ribbon were on the top of the jar. This gift was from a fund raising effort at a church and they charged $10.00 for it.

    I prepared this for our work Christmas Party gift exchange. I was a little nervous because I settled on this recipe last-minute and didn’t have time to test it. I’m testing it today, because it made a pretty and practical gift (a basket with cans of Rotel, black beans, and chicken, and a jarred cornbread mix, and matching winter-themed ceramic soup mug and bread pan) that I’d like to make for many others on my list, but wouldn’t want to give it if it sucks.

    Let me just say, I don’t think it sucks! It is so tasty, and I just put it on. It still needs to simmer. The only thing I did differently is use long-grain brown rice (so it has to simmer longer), and I add a can of black beans. I may add corn in the future… But I’d be stoked to get this as a gift. I hope my friends and family feel the same way!

    Delicious! Thank you!

    I just made a trio of these – one for a Valentine’s Secret Sister, one for a family with a new baby, and one for my family! I put the rice and the seasoning packet in a pint jar, and placed it in a gift basket with a can of chicken, 2 cans (to make close to 28 oz) of Rotel, 1 can of no salt black beans, 1 can of no salt corn, a whole bag of tortilla chips, and a pint of sour cream to dollop on top! I will be breaking up the chips and using as a garnish on top of the soup with the sour cream rather than mixing it in … I like the crunch! May add the cornbread mix in the baby gift as well!
