This reciped turned out great. Even better the next day. We didn't like the soggy tortilla chips, though. Next time I won't simmer for five more minutes so they'll stay crispy.
I received this as a gift last year. I had a houseful of hunters so decided to make it up. They went through it like crazy and the next day for lunch asked for it again. It was all gone the night before so I had to find the recipe fast. I use long grain brown rice and if there is any left over the next day it is wonderfully thick, I just add a little more water and chicken broth and it is soooo very good.
Hubby and I loved this easy soup-and it would make a wonderful gift too. The flavoring is perfect.
