A Dom Deluise recipe. This actually dates back to the Depression era. It's inexpensive, tasty and good for you.
Make sure you use uncooked rice in this recipe.
Serve with additional grated cheese.
Note: I've read the reviews and adjusted the liquid.
Now I take my chili seriously, but sometimes I'm in the mood for something easy and mild. This recipe of my Mother's scratches that itch for me. Serve with some fresh crusty bread and hot sauce on the side for your spicy chili lovers.
I make a double batch of this on occasion and throw it in the crock pot. If you do, just throw it in on your warm setting after cooking is complete. Enjoy!
This one is simple and inexpensive. My husband liked it a lot. He walked in while it was cooking and said, "Mmm". Normally, he would not touch split pea soup. It's practically vegetarian too--no bacon or ham hocks to touch--and yet still tastes great. Biscuits go really well with this. In fact, I think you need them to make a filling meal.
I looked in the fridge tonight and all I could find was a small bit of roast chicken and some veggies. I decided to give this method of making chicken stock a go – shared with me by the Home Ec. teacher I work with. It makes a wonderful stock and this was the resulting soup.
