Dry Taco Soup Mix {Meal in a Jar}

Aside from the convenience of having these lining your pantry shelves for a quick and delicious dinner any time, recipes like these also make for the perfect gift, as well as for camping / backpacking / 72 hour kit food options.  Just switch out the glass jar for a ziplock bag if you plan to hit the hills.

Shelf life on these jars are 1 year.  If you have a food saver with the ability to seal a mason jar lid on dry goods, it will last much longer (upwards of 15 years if kept in a cool, dry place).

You can use any brand of freeze dried or dehydrated food here, but I've included links to the products that I use personally.  Click here to find out more about how you can earn these products for free or half off.

To make the soup:
Add 7 cups of water to a pot and turn on high heat.
Dump entire contents of jar into the water.
