Looking for an easy recipe?

Sure, we often buy store-made packets for things like soup and dips, but have you thought about making your own at home? This week’s Happy Friday reader Lisa breaks down her recipe; it’s so tasty that almost everyone comes back for more!

I make my own Lipton soup mix and keep it in a huge jar. I can’t remember the last time I went to the store to buy packets.

I use it for soup, dips, roast, and so much more. My sister always gives me her jar, and I make her more. Here’s the much-loved recipe.

I put the mixes in little jars with these cards. It’s always the perfect little gift for all occasions, and everybody loves them.

They always return the jars back to me so I can refill them!

    I don’t see the link to print out the recipes, as stated in the post.

      SO sorry for the issues. Maybe try printing by typing “Control P” OR you could save the images above and resize to print as you need that way. Hoping this might help! πŸ€—πŸ₯°πŸ€ž

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re so welcome, Mrsbee! No worries! πŸ₯° I was hoping to find an easier way to grab it for you too! πŸ’ž Sorry for any confusion.

    Is 5 Tbls about the equivalent of a store packet?
