Augason Farms Corn Chowder Soup Mix  in  4 sealed super can #10 can with 4 Mylar packets.While I am a man of very simple tastes,and "CHOWDER" was never a part of my vocabulary...I can tell you that this is CORN SOUP and has a very rich and creamy base with good flavor,though it (to me) begs to have a load of rice added to it as the corn within the mix would be of such small quantity to just make you mad. The calories and great flavor ,sort of like creame style corn...of which I am very familiar can make for a hearty meal or drink with good calorie count as we eat for calories and this 'soup' thickens nicely after about 20 t0 25 minutes near a fire ...simmer though not boiling as boiling can BURN it and make for poor taste.

Dog enjoyed the rich flavor of this chowder too and even polished the pot.

What would be ideal for LTS, is some kind of dehydrated "roux".  The challenge is storing fats like oil or butter. 
From there you could add whatever dehydrated veggies, like corn, onions or even a few beans.  One you have the creamy soup base it could be combined with pasta (think mac and cheese or alfredo), or become the base for a chowder.

Dried pasta already stores quite well and this seems like a good pairing.

The idea of long term soup mix is a little odd, as I often make soups from left over ingredients in the kitchen.
I'd rather have LTS cans of some base ingredients, though a couple of these cans might be worth keeping.

Carl:
  I also have a favorite ...sausage gravy and biscuits.....it is a high calorie,good tasting,High Carbohydrate option that is a 'feel good' type food for me.

Most 'emergency' type foods will be HIGH Carbohydrate and high calorie as that is the FUEL we need and most of us could live a long time on such simple fare as a bag of rice.....

Not trying to highjack your thread Carl just noting that dry roux is readily available and doesn't contain or need any fat. Also it is easily made.
