Santa Fe Wild Rice Soup

Santa Fe Wild Rice Soup


"Quick, easy and just a little bit spicy!! A great garnish for this soup is homemade fresh tomato salsa. If you do not all ready have a recipe just combine 2 diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup green onions, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves, 1 teaspoon lime juice or red wine vinegar and salt to taste. Top soup with fresh cilantro and salsa and you will love the flavor."

I used less celery and onion and probably a little more rice. EXCELLENT for a cold night. Thick and yummy with crusty bread and butter on the side. Kids didn't complain too much either and it...

This was good but it lacked something and I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I did run short on wild rice and threw in some brown but the rice wasn't the problem. I think next time I would...

disregarded step1 and just everything in the pot for 30mins. served with fresh salsa, cheese and sour cream.
