Sometimes, you want something more than just plain soup and with Bear Creek Soups, the possibilities are endless! Although their brand is called Bear Creak Soups, the reality is they are just so much more than that.
Bear Creek Country Kitchens focuses on creating soups like mom used to make – and use the highest quality products and their own special blend of spices to give each product great flavor.
I received two different types of soup mixes – BC Hearty Chicken w Pasta dry soup mix and BC White Cheddar Veg dry as well as BC Cheddar Broccoli Rice Mix to review. I am going to show you how easy it is to make any of the Bear Creek Soups your own just by adding a few ingredients.
The Latest From Bear Creek Soups
Since our original post they have updated their product line and introduced some new items as well. The White Cheddar and Chicken with Pasta soups do not seem to be part of their product line anymore – which makes us kind of sad because we really liked them!
They did introduce soup cups which we think is a fabulous idea so people can bring them to work and school to have a warm meal that is easy to make. They also added some really yummy soups as well including:
- Chili Soup
- Cheddar Potato
- Clam Chowder
- Gumbo Tortilla
- ….and more.
We do recommend you read the ingredients carefully because if you are on a low sodium diet – we would not recommend them! But if you are looking for a quick meal that is REALLY good – we say order today.
Making Bear Creek Soups
These delicious meals are so darn simple to make and are ready to eat in under 30 minutes.
- Bring 8 cups of water to a boil
- Whisk in Bear Creek dry soup mix
- Simmer 10-15 minutes
Once done you can eat as is or try to add some elements to make it your own like we did.
BC Hearty Chicken w Pasta dry soup mix:
Hearty chicken soup with rotini pasta, carrots, and garden fresh herbs. This is one of their new soups and everybody’s favorite. Let’s face it, everyone loves chicken soup especially at this time of year and you could very well just eat as it is. But we made it our own and gave it a little southwest flavor by adding salsa and tortilla strips.
BC White Cheddar Veg dry soup mix:
A rich & creamy cheddar cheese flavor, with rustic potatoes, tomatoes and carrots. This was one of their new additions to their line and this was definitely another winner in the taste department.
We made it our own by adding crumbled bacon and finely shredded cheddar cheese because you never have too much cheese. This too had a lot of sodium as did the one above (their whole line has a lot of salt – but sadly, that is part of the yumminess!).
BC Cheddar Broccoli Rice Mix:
This Bear Creek® rice dish is perfect for the cheese lovers in your family.
A delightful blend of hearty rice, tasty pasta, and delicately chopped broccoli served up in a rich, creamy cheddar sauce. Obviously made to be a side dish, we made it as our main meal by adding chunks of broccoli, diced tomatoes and chicken chunks. I have to say the taste was amazing! The flavors were so rich we wanted more. And it seriously could not be easier to make – simply add water and the magic happens!
The only downside to it – as with all pre-made meals is the salt content. At a whopping 950mg per serving, this is not something we will eat too often – but for those super busy nights where time is not your friend, it is a perfect add-on or even a meal for a quick fix.

While we absolutely love the flavors – and the ease of making bear Creek Soups, we will not use them too often because we have to watch our salt intake. That is really the only downside to this line of product.
In the future I would balance them with a nice salad instead of anything else. The reviews are really good and most customers love the product as much as we do! Some of the comments also have some creative ideas for extending the products to feed more people and create unique meals!
