Simple Southwest Chicken & Rice Soup
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!
