Crisp, true to life.

"Pampers Swaddlers are the No.1 choice at local hospitals in Los Angeles and across the country. And now Pampers Swaddlers is available through size 6 to comfort and protect babies through many more moments of love!"
While not completely adults, or even near that word, my boys are out of diapers and onto bigger and better things. High School, Junior High, 1st grade, each one enjoying life and all the things that come with it. New experiences, new friends and teachers. I'm just left behind, like most moms', and I realize motherhood is quite the spectator sport once the kids think they're grande!

Step into Flavor with Frontier Soups - Product Review

I am a huge advocate of making your own food. I don't really treat my family to "fast food". I cook daily and to be honest, I often run out of ideas when I make dinner. I'll recycle some recipes during the week, and for the most part it's not having all ingredients you need to make a hearty meal or in this case, soup.

With Frontier 100% All Natural Homemade in Minutes Soups, you'll find that making these not only feed a family of 4 quite easily, you need minimal ingredients to add in. 

"From hearty bean soups to chili, chowders and more delicate varieties, Frontier Soups offers soup for all seasons and every appetite! All ingredients are of the finest quality and contain no salt, MSG or preservatives. The mixes are available in fine specialty food and gift stores throughout the country or by mail order directly from the company."
I received a very lovely package from Green Moms Meet and Frontier Soups!

 I received some lovely soup flavors, I decided to test out one of their more popular flavors "South of the Border Tortilla Soup"

South of the Border Tortilla Soup | via Frontier Soups

The soup mix includes the following inside the package:

Our tortilla soup mix is a sure-fire winner! Zesty Mexican spices, quick cooking dehydrated black beans, peppers and sweet corn are the base for this Southwestern specialty. Add chicken, salsa, and tortilla chips to finish. Our top seller!  Soup so good, you’ll want to host a party.

Tortilla Soup Mix Ingredients:

Dehydrated black beans, corn, red and green pepper, onion, garlic, epazote and chili spices. No added salt, preservatives or MSG.

To make the soup, all you need to have on hand are the following ingredients: 

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups shredded precooked chicken breast
  • 12 ounces salsa
  • Recommended Garnish: 4 ounces tortilla chips, crumbled (a thicker chip works best) or tortilla strips
I followed their simple instructions and this is what I came up with!

Per their recommendation I made crispy, crunchy Tortilla strips! I used corn tortillas and cut them diagonally, and deep fried them. I topped each soup bowl with tortilla strips and my husband and boys were very pleased with the flavors!

I'm usually not a fan of prepackaged food, or mixes. I always feel like I need to add salt, or other ingredients to get to our desired liking and sometimes they're pre-seasoned, making for oversalting or overseason errors. But with Frontier Soups, the flavor levels were so on point I had to just add salt and it was perfect!
