*CLOSED* Frontier Soups Product Review and #Giveaway @FrontierSoups

Frontier Soups
Like I have told you all in the past every year, just before Thanksgiving, The Houston Ballet sponsors the Nutcracker Market to raise money for the ballet. My family and I go every year to kick off the holiday season, and to start our Christmas shopping extravaganza.

This past year at the Nutcracker Market, I was lucky enough to meet the folks Frontier Soups. They have wonderful dips, oatmeal, cornbreads, and soups of every kind. They were nice enough to send me a few of their wonderful products for me to sample. Boy did we eat well three nights in a row.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was the presentation. It was so bright and cheery! I didn’t even know where to start! Then what hit me next was the smell, even the UPS man said the box smelled great! My tongue was salivating just thinking about what we were about to try.


Taco Dip Mix
Taco Dip
The first dish we tried was the Taco Dip. In most cases you would eat it as a dip right? Nope, not us! We had it for dinner, even though it started as an appetizer, but we couldn’t stop eating. Not only was it quick and easy to make, but it was divine to eat. Quick, easy, and yummy … I am all about that! The first thing I smelled when I was cooking it was the chipotle. I love chipotle! As we started eating, the table got quite. I was waiting for someone to say something, but no one did, they were too busying eating. Finally I said “Well?!?” The first answer I got was “it’s fantastic is there more?” It’s just wonderful! One thing I love about the Frontier Soup packages is that they offer a variation on the recipe. With so many ways you could serve the same dish, you could have it multiple times in a row, and each time it would be different. Click here to purchase

Tortilla Soup Mix

Tortilla Soup
The next dish we tried was the Tortilla Soup. I am being honest when I say this was the best tortilla soup I have EVER eaten in my life. We had more moans and groans going on that night than you would believe. One, it’s super easy to put together, and two it taste like restaurant quality tortilla soup, actually better because I haven’t had restaurant quality that tasted this good. It’s very hardy, and filling, yet light, and delicious. The black beans, corn, and other ingredients give it a homemade feel. Like I was telling my husband, you could pass this recipe off as your own and no one would be the wiser. The only problem with that idea is everyone is going to ask you for your recipe.

Beef Goulash
Beef Goulash Soup
Last but certainly not least was the Beef Goulash Soup. This was a surprise to my tongue. I grew up with bland undesirable goulash, nothing I would even consider eating now. This soup on the other hand was anything but bland. It was goulash with a kick, it was spicy, and tangy, and full of vibrant flavors. Again, this soup offered an inventive variation, which was to serve the goulash on top of noodles. To let each person fix it to their liking I made pasta to go with it. Some people had it with, and some without. I had it both ways, and I will be honest I liked it both ways. This is another soup that is hearty, and delicious. By the end of dinner, the pot was empty.

Beef Goulash Soup Pasta Variation

I was already a fan of Frontier Soups before I had a chance to experience so many more of their products, but now I am a forever buyer of Frontier Soups. They offer top quality meals that are simple and quick, but give your guest the impression that they have been cooking all day. There are so many varieties that it would be hard to just pick a few. Out of the three I recently tried I had to think hard about which was my favorite, when you liked them all, how do you choose just one? After much consideration I chose the Tortilla soup, the reason being is I cannot find a tortilla soup any place that taste as fabulous as Frontier Soups, and I live in Texas home of Tex-Mex!

If you haven’t tried Frontier Soups, it’s a must! Not only does Frontier Soups make great meals it also makes great gifts. Think about a basket full of Frontier Soup Products as a birthday or Christmas gift. Talk about making a great impression!  Don't forget to sign up for their Click here
