Nothing fills the belly like a good hearty soup. When it comes to creating a warm bowl of chili, why not bring in the best of both worlds by mixing shelf-stable ingredients with garden fresh veggies. That's what Dr. Sian Proctor did when making her Southwestern Chicken Chili Soup.


  • 1 cup freeze-dried chopped chicken

  • 1 cup freeze-dried black beans

  • 1 cup Instant brown rice

  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried tomato dices

  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried red bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried sweet corn

  • 2 tbsp freeze-dried chopped onions

  • 1 tbsp freeze-dried garlic

  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce powder

  • 1 package of chili seasoning

  • 6 cups of chicken broth

"I believe we can become globally more sustainable by combining freeze-dried fruits, meats, and vegetables with locally-sourced fresh food." - Dr. Sian Proctor


Add all contents into a single pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Garnish and Serve

For this recipe, Sian created a guacamole dip using a combination of freeze-dried corn mixed with fresh avocado and cilantro from her own backyard garden.

Throw in a few margaritas and this #meals4mars is complete.
