Great soup that I ended up throwing into a crockpot. Good for a quick meal and even better if you would rather leave it for a few hours. The 2 year old got enthusiastic about this one - YAY! - and 8 servings went very quickly between the 2 1/2 of us.

I didn't put in the rice, but we still extremely good. We all really enjoyed it.

Yummy! It was easy to make. (I didn't mess it up!) I added about a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, used brown instead of white rice, and used "Better than Bouillon" (Chicken flavor) instead of vegetable stock. Thank you for the great recipe!
