Most of you know that I am a huge fan of soups. I'm not even picky - I like them all! However, with the warmer weather, I tend to lean towards lighter types of soup like Chicken and Rice. As much as I love the traditional version, sometimes I like to spice things up a bit with my Simple Southwest Chicken & Rice Soup!

It comes together super fast - in about the time it takes to cook rice - meaning, dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes! Although you could add other ingredients to this soup like corn or black beans, I really wanted to keep this simple. Feel free to add things your family likes to make it heartier if you like!

I'm sharing this Simple Southwest Chicken & Rice Soup as part of the Wayfair 15 Course Meal. With there being 15 courses, I figured a lighter soup would be perfect to share as part of the series! Not to mention, it's summer! Lighter soups are a must when it's blazing hot outside! This soup has a light, clear broth with only a few additional ingredients. I like to use leftover or rotisserie chicken to save time. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1½ cup rice

  • Lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add rice. Stir once, or just enough to separate the rice. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Fluff rice with a fork.

2. Meanwhile, bring the chicken stock, chicken, Ro*tel, and green chilies to a simmer in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat. Cook until all ingredients are heated through.

To serve: Add a scoop of rice to the bottom of a bowl. Ladle the chicken stock mixture over the top. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with a lime wedge to be squeezed into the soup.
