Is there anything Lipton soup mixes can’t do?

They’re known for making cooking easy and fast, so today we’ll show you how you can cook delicious snacks, mains and sides with just 3 MAIN INGREDIENTS thanks to Lipton’s magical soup mixes.

From Sweet and Saucy Chicken and Lemon Ranch Kale Chips, to Cheesy Roasted Almonds and Ranch Deviled Eggs, these simple recipes will always be here when you need something super easy to whip up in a flash.

We’ve included recipes for each, but feel free to alter the seasoning amounts to your liking!

  1.  Lipton Onion Soup Mix + Duck Sauce + Garlic Powder = Brisket Marinade

    Brisket Marinade Directions:
    In a medium bowl, mix together 1 packet of onion soup mix, 2 cups duck sauce and season with garlic powder to taste. Spread over roast of your choice (brisket and brick roast work well), and bake until cooked through.

  2. Lipton Ranch Soup Mix + Oil + Fresh Lemon Juice = Lemon Ranch Kale Chips

    Lemon Ranch Kale Chips Directions:
    In a large mixing bowl toss together kale leaves (that have been washed and patted dry), ranch soup mix, oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste. Spread the kale onto a baking sheet making sure the kale touches as little as possible to ensure they crisp in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the pan around and lightly toss the kale for even baking. Bake for 5-10 minutes longer, or until the kale is crispy and slightly golden brown. Watch closely as it can burn easily. Remove from oven and allow to cool. The chips will crisp up even more once out of the oven.

  3. Lipton Ranch Soup Mix + Popcorn Kernels + Butter = Zesty Popcorn

    Zesty Popcorn Directions:
    Pop 1/2 cup popcorn kernels according to package directions. In a separate bowl combine 5 tablespoons melted butter with 1 packet of ranch soup mix, set aside. Once the popcorn is popped (and still warm), transfer to a large mixing bowl and toss with the ranch mix to coat. 

  4. Lipton Onion Soup Mix + Ketchup + Apricot Preserves = Sweet Chicken Sauce

    Sweet Chicken Sauce Directions:
    Place 1 1/2 cups ketchup, 2 cups apricot preserves and 1 packet of onion soup mix in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix to combine. (For extra sweetness, add brown sugar to taste.) Once the sauce is combined and heated through remove from heat. Spoon over fried schnitzel or bake with chicken and vegetables. 

  5. Lipton Ranch Soup Mix + Ground Paprika + Mayonnaise = Flavorful Deviled Eggs

    Flavorful Deviled Eggs Directions:
    Slice 6 peeled, hard boiled eggs lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a bowl with 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Season with ranch soup mix to taste, and mix until creamy and fully combined. Fill the cooked egg white halves with the filling and sprinkle with paprika.

  6. Lipton Onion Soup Mix + Greek Yogurt + Mayonnaise = Greek Onion Dip

    Greek Onion Dip Directions:
    In a medium bowl mix together 1 cup plain greek yogurt, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise and 1 packet of onion soup mix, until well combined. Serve with crackers or chips.

  7. Lipton Vegetable Soup Mix + Grated Parmesan Cheese + Olive Oil = Cheesy Roasted Almonds

    Cheesy Roasted Almonds Directions:
    In a medium bowl toss together peeled almonds, oil, parmesan cheese and vegetable soup mix to taste. Transfer to a baking tray, spreading into a single layer, and bake on 350 degrees F. until the nuts are toasted. Allow to cool and serve.

  8. Lipton Onion Soup Mix + Olive Oil + Fresh Dill = Onion Roasted Potatoes

    Onion Roasted Potatoes Directions:
    On a large baking tray toss diced potatoes with oil and onion soup mix to taste. Bake at 350 degrees F. until cooked through. Remove from the oven and toss with freshly chopped dill and serve.

  9. Lipton Vegetable Soup Mix + Olive Oil + Fresh Parsley = Veggie Flavored Rice

    Veggie Flavored Rice Directions:
    Combine 1 cup long-grain white rice, 1 packet of vegetable soup mix, 2 tablespoons oil and water (water amount depends on package directions) in a medium saucepan. Stir to combine and cook according to package directions. Once done, remove from heat and top with fresh chopped parsley.
