This is a recipe I made up after trying a similar soup at a Mexican restaurant. A friend of mine that owns a small bar & restaurant liked this recipe so much, he now serves it at his place! This soup is quick & easy to make with ingredients off of your pantry shelves - enjoy!

Didn't use the olives, but otherwise pretty much followed the recipe. Used two chicken breasts - might use one more next time. Also, just added about 3/4 cup uncooked rice and let it boil for a while. Added a few sprinkles of cumin. Spicy, but we like it that way!

Well, my husband gave me a kiss for this one!!! It is good. Being from Texas though, had to add a liitle bit to it.Added some cilantro, dash of cumin and I have discovered smoked paprika which is so good!!! But it's a recipe that would fine on it's own.

Obviously your friend who is serving this recipe of yours in his restaurant knows a good soup when he tastes it! Great soup and one I'll be repeating. Although I love olives I only added about a quarter of a cup. Loved the red pepper flakes and passed the hot sauce at the table. This family of soup lovers thank you Key Wee for sharing your recipe. I have added it to my soup collection.
