Tasty, light and easy. One of my favorite meals is a bowl of soup and grill cheese sandwich. I make this one often.

Flavorful, light and delicious! A lovely mix of colors and textures. Only change I made was to use homemade chicken stock. This would be wonderful with leftover ham as well. Thanks, AshaK, for sharing the recipe!

I like jambalaya, so I loved this soup. It was very easy to make and used ingredients I naturally have on hand. I doubled the recipe. In order to make it less expensive, I added one can of chicken broth and finished off the liquid with water and bouillion cubes. I also added a little extra rice and had to flavor it with celery seed since I didn't have enough celery.
