"This hearty soup is an anything-goes recipe! Try using carrots instead of red bell pepper; extra garlic, no problem! I love a lot of cilantro! Whatever your choice of veggies, it's wonderful and sure to please your family's tastebuds. At our house, I put a bottle of our favorite hot sauce on the table for those who like to spice up their tortilla soup. Garnish with Monterey Jack cheese and tortilla chips."

  1. Place chicken and water in a stockpot, and add onion, celery, and garlic. Cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken from broth, and set aside to cool. Skim off fat. Smash cooked garlic cloves against side of pot. Add undrained tomatoes, cumin, cayenne pepper, white pepper, and bouillon cube to the broth. Cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Add corn, green onion, and cilantro. Simmer 10 minutes longer.
  4. Skin and bone chicken, then dice or shred into bite-size pieces. Add chicken to soup along with cooked rice. Heat through. Season with salt to taste. Ladle into bowls, and garnish with cheese and tortilla chips.

This was a fantastic soup that you can really tailor to your likes. I made a couple of minor changes to this to be able to freeze this. I didn't add the cilantro simply because I forgot to. I sk...

I used only one can of tomatoes and we added lime juice at the table. Put in a couple of mild green peppers too. Excellent flavor, beautiful color, and lots of it--perfect for company or for f...

Very good; broth was just a little plain, however. Next time I'll use only one can tomatoes and less cilantro.

The soup looked and tasted beautiful! Definately a keeper!
