Tortilla Soup Mix in a Jar - Make Your Own Mixes

Kids love helping crush the tortilla chips, so be sure to buy a bit extra to account for the sampling!

Ingredients for Jar:
1 cup converted long grain rice (ie. Uncle Ben's)
2 to 2 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 (5-oz.) can chicken

Seasonings: Mix the following and place in a thin zipper sandwich bag:
2 tbsp. chicken bouillon granules
2 tsp. lemonade powder with sugar
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1 tsp. dried cilantro leaves
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup dried minced onion

In a quart sized jar, place rice, pressing down carefully. Then add seasoning packet, making sure it can be seen from the edges. Then fill the rest of the jar with crushed tortilla chips. Close with lid. Tape a can of chicken to the top of jar (or if you wish, include instructions for adding a can of chicken to the instructions below).

For 12 cups of delicious Tortilla Soup:
Carefully empty tortilla chips from jar and set aside in a bowl. Remove seasoning packet and also set aside. Pour remaining jar contents into a large pot for cooking rice. Add 10 cups of water, seasoning packet and one can (10oz) of diced tomatoes and green chilies. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add tortilla chips, and cover and simmer for five more minutes. Serve immediately.
