Delicious! A very hearty soup that is also very tastey. It's easy to make - everyone I gave this soup mix to raved about it. I highly recommend you give this one a try.

A good basic soup, but I found it bland. I would recommend increasing the seasoning. However, a friend to whom I gave this "jar mix" loved the soup.

I used this recipe, and added beef bullion. I gave them out for Christmas. Everyone loved them.

I wanted to do a soup-in-a-jar mix for colleagues and less-close friends, and I'm glad I tried this before I just "wrapped" it. The original recipe is gelatinous and downright gross. I tweaked i...

After reading the other reviews I used the recipe as a base. I fried 2 onions and 2 teaspoons of fresh garlic in the pot before adding the other ingredients. I added a teaspoon of vegetable st...

I have received this soup as a gift twice in the past few years. The first time I prepared it, I had to force it down because the black pepper was overpowering for the quantity of soup it made. ...
