Chicken and Rice Soup

I have tried a number of chicken and rice soups. This one has been our families favorite. Cumin, cilantro, and oregano give it a different flavor than a chicken broth based soup.
Its perfect with left over rice and relatively easy for a soup.

Chicken and Rice Soup
  • 2 c. shredded or cubed chicken
  • 1/2 to 1 c. rice, cooked, any kind (wild rice mix is great in this soup)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 c. cilantro, chopped
  • 6-8 c. chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp cumin, more for taste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tsp oregano
  • Dash Crushed red pepper, optional for spice

Cooking Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to boil then simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
