Home Made Instant Potato Soup

My friend Katie gave us an awesome anniversary / Christmas gift this past year:  a picnic bag with a bottle of wine, crackers, and some home made instant soup mixes in mason jars.

We've only had one of the soups and it was so good I asked for the recipe.  And now I'm going to share it with you so you can warm yourself during this blizzard.  brrrrrrr!

Home Made Instant Potato Soup

2 C instant mashed potato
1 1/2 C dry milk powder
2 T instant chicken bouillon
2 t dried minced onion
1 t dried parsley
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t dried thyme
1/8 t turmeric
1 1/2 t seasoning salt

Combine all ingredients.  Fits in 1 qt jar.

Use 1/2 C mix with 1 C boiling water.

When we made it I added a heaping 1/2 C of the mix so it was a little thicker.  I also added some unpeeled, roughly cut red potatoes and some carrots.  Sausage, parsnips, celery, onion, and cheese all taste yummy with it, too.

This sounds yummy! I will have to try it.

Here is a really good mexican rice recipe from my friend Maria who is from Jalisco, Mexico. I have been wanting to share it because it is so good!

1 small onion (finely chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
1/2 poblano pepper cut into strips (bell pepper is fine)
Fresh parsley ( a couple of leaves)
vegetable oil
1 cube of chicken bouillon
1 cup of frozen veg. (peas, corn, carrots)
salt to taste
4 cups of water

Boil the 4 cups of water. While the water is boiling, melt a little bit of butter with 2 tablespoons of oil (med-high heat)in a skillet. When it's melted, add the rice, garlic and onion. Saute it until the onion is soft and the rice is browned. Don't let it burn! If it has too much oil you can dump it out. Once the water has boiled, add the rice along with the vegetables, parsley, peppers, salt and chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil. Then cover, lower heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes or until rice is cooked. You should taste it now and then to make sure it doesn't need more salt.

I think I'll try this soon. I have all that stuff around the house, and I've been trying to figure out a way to use up my instant mashed potatoes (can't stand the stuff prepared according to box)

Chunks of cooked ham is also good thrown in for an Irish version! Thanks for sharing.
