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!

Take the KUPP' Challenge

I have a huge issue with my kids (and husband *eye roll*) and it's their incessant need to leave a collection of cups around the house. On the study desk, in their room, on top of their dressers. Mind you, these cups could very well be in their OWN room, and they'll still say, "Not mine, mom!" 

Well, not to be outdone. I was pleasantly surprised when I was chosen to review the KUPP'! 

What is KUPP'?

  • The Kupp' is a 6 oz glass outfitted with a colorful silicone sleeve.  
  • It is is specifically designed for children ages 3-10.
  • The firm grip and silicone sleeve helps to protect the glass from damage while providing a safe  toxic free vessel to drink from.
  • It is made in the USA using imported glass, all materials are sourced from environmentally friendly manufacturers that adhere to EU and US standards.
  • The glass is recyclable, certified lead and cadmium free, and is made from a pure soda-lime formula.  
  • It is dishwasher safe.
  • The grip-friendly silicone sleeve is BPA/BPS free and made with medical and food grade silicone. 
What did I think?

They're great for small little hands! My teenagers thought the portion of the liquid in the KUPP' was not enough. But to be honest, they could drink an entire pitcher of juice on their own if I allowed them to drink from HUGE cups. I told them that until they could clean up after themselves they'd have to have their KUPP' and I put their name on them. My 6 year old thought it was the greatest thing ever, my husband didn't enjoy having a KUPP' with his name on it, but he's notorious for using 4 cups a day and leaving them everywhere!

I think the portion of liquid is perfect for younger kids. If there was an 8-10 oz. size, I'd definitely pick it up for my teens and MAYBE the husband! 

The design is sleek and trendy, the colors are perfect and they're also so practical! 

Are you and your family ready for to take the KUPP' Challenge?
