“This is a great and different chicken and rice soup. Serve with cornbread or tortilla chips. Encourage your guests to squeeze a little lime juice into their soup. It's great! Garnish with fresh cilantro.”

Great soup! I think next time I'll add more chicken broth so it's a little more "soupy"! Thanks Sarah!

The soup was okay. Not exactly what I'd call a fiesta. Adding lime juice directly to the soup helped. Also real garlic instead of powder is best. It was quick to make, I'll give it that much. I dunno, it needs something else.

A nice place to start. For the most part I started out following the directions. I did replace the bell pepper with diced canned chilies as I didn’t have a pepper on hand and thought the mild chilies were in keeping with the ‘Fiesta’ theme. I also used hominy in place of the corn, just personal preference. When the soup was done I did a taste test and although good, it simply didn’t shout FIESTA, I personally prefer a more spicy and robust flavor. I proceeded to add cumin, oregano, fresh minced garlic, original Rotel tomatoes and a wedge of jalapeno pepper. I removed the jalapeno and discarded after the soup had simmered a bit. I also increased the amount of broth. I made my own chicken stock and added the rice directly to the pot. I had made lobster stew for my husband and made this soup for myself, as he doesn’t care for hominy. For lunch we were having leftovers, hubby took a taste of this soup and fell in love with it, had to heat him a bowl! Said he liked the hominy in this dish! What a shock! Give the hominy a whirl, its bland flavor compliments the spicy flavors and the chewy texture makes for a nice comfort food. A definite keeper with the changes.
