    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This warm soup has some nice Southwestern flavors in it, with lots of onions, cilantro, cumin and oregano. The tender chicken is first simmmered to create a broth, then it's added to the soup and almost shreds apart on its own. A tiny bit of cream rounds it out, but it's not a typical heavy cream soup. Delicious, takes a little time, but it's easy once the broth is done.

      Really delicious soup. It reminded me of a great soup I had while visiting Peru a couple of years taste and I was right back there, only that one was made with quinoa instead of rice. Next time I will try it with cooked quinoa. The broth was very tasty and worth the time to make from scratch. I did not have any half and half, so I had to settle for 2% milk, and I also used probably closer to 2 1/2 cups of rice as I was using up some leftovers. I will definitely be making this soup again.
