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