  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome soup I used low sodium chicken STOCK and petite diced tomatoes and it was awesome. I did not find it salty at all, thought it was very flavorful. Will definitely buy more

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great soup! The soup was super easy to make, and a great flavor. I used low sodium veggie broth 9vs chicken broth or water) and no salt added tomatoes and it was still SO salty. I bought it again, and this time around I'll be using just water. Other than that the flavor is excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste & Easy Make This soup is delicious! I recommend using low-sodium broth or cutting regular broth with water as this mix is already very salty. It cooks beautifully!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used in my Phillips soup maker instead I don't have an Insta Pot, so I tried this in my soup maker that I bought for Christmas. It is smaller, so I used half a package of this soup starter and half a rotisserie chicken breast. It came out quite well, though I like the jar of the tortilla soup maker that Wm Sonoma used to sell better. I toasted tortilla strips in the oven with oil and they were good on top of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes lentils a new favorite This soup mix was gifted to me by a good friend. She sent me two flavors and both have been awesome and more importantly day-savers. I’ve had sick members of my family and no motivation to make a gorgeous soup and these mixes literally saved us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Am here reordering this Soup Starter now! I made this today for the first time. I will say that the directions were very easy to follow...I, however, didn't follow them exactly. The recipe calls for low sodium broth. I didn't get that kind and I will not make that mistake again! The dish came out to be quite salty for my taste. I don't cook with much salt in the first place, so this was a bit much for me. I had to add a cup of water to the recipe to take the salt level down. I added a pouch of cooked chicken to the recipe and it came out marvelously. Like I said, I'm reordering this as I'm typing this review!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Surprised I purchased this in August. I don't usually use starter's but thought I would put it away for winter. Today (not winter yet), I was cleaning the pantry and tried it. What a wonderful surprise. I had only fire roasted tomatoes so that is my only variance with the recipe. Do try this, you will be happy.

  • I have the 3 quart instant pot plus mini. Is there anyway I could just half the soup recipe & cook it twice? Would I pressure cook it for 9 minutes?

    Asked by: LER124
    Hi LER124, You can half the recipe but keep the cook time the same.
