Very tasty. This recipe is a keeper. For a slight variation, I used brown basmati rice (Texmati brand), which adds a nice flavor and texture, as well as some additional nutrients. Also, my kids aren't crazy about the chunkiness of the canned tomatoes, so I chopped the tomatoes in a blender before adding to the soup, and it was a big success. Thanks for posting!
Very good and easy to make. I will be making this quite often. Thanks for sharing.
