I made a gift basket using this soup mix. The idea and recipe are adapted from Diane Phillips's book, The Perfect Mix. I put the jar of black beans, jar of spice mixture, and a jar of California Corn Bread Mix, #72132 into a brightly colored basket along with a reggae music CD. Decorated with colorful ribbon. Looked cool and it made a great gift.
