Don’t Mess With Texas Soup Mix in a Jar
Ingredients for Jar:
1 pkg brown gravy mix
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic salt
10-12 tortilla chips, crunched
1 cup uncooked pasta noodles (small such as shells, macaroni or wheels)
Add gravy to pint-sized jar. In a bowl, combine chili powder, oregano, cumin, minced onion and garlic salt. Add to jar in a layer. Add crunched tortilla chips then top with pasta. Press down if needed. Tightly seal with lid.
Brown 1/2 lb ground beef in saucepan. Add jar contents and 7 cups hot water. Heat to boiling. Add 1 15oz can corn (preferably Mexican style with bell peppers) and 1 14oz can diced tomatoes. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer soup for 20 minutes, or until pasta is done, remembering to stir regularly to prevent sticking. Serve with more tortilla chips and Monterey Jack cheese.
