My adaptation of a popular California-Mexican Soup. Great fun for guests and kids love it too. Pass some favorite Salsa for those who like their food HOT.

This soup was great! I modified it a bit and used a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of tomatoes with chiles (great if you want something that isn't particularly spicy).

We loved this soup! I couldn't find adobo seasoning, so I just added some of each of the listed seasonings, until it tasted good and it turned out perfectly. The rice really gives it some substance as well--other recipes I have tried have turned out too liquidy. This was great--thank you Annie White.
