Test Kitchen tips
  • This recipe travels nicely in a jar. After combining the first five ingredients, pour mixture into four half-pint canning jars or one 1-qt. jar. Omit lime juice. In separate small jars, layer cheddar cheese, green onions and a lime wedge. Cover all jars and refrigerate until serving. To serve, pour 1 cup soup into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high until heated through, 2-3 minutes. Serve with cheese, green onions and lime.
