Quick Chicken and Rice Taco Soup

by Laura

I have a family full of picky eaters. My husband is probably the worst of them all.I think my kids have taken the lead from their father, but as they have been growing up, they have become less picky.

Just the other night I made a soup that included peas in it and my husband completely turned his nose up to the peas and ate around them. My 12 year old daughter, who would normally of had the same reaction, told me she tried the peas and liked them. Surprisingly she ate almost all of them.

Taco soup happens to be one of those dishes that my family has no qualms with. However, if you know me, I can’t just always make the same old taco soup recipe. I like to mix things up.

So, I created a Quick Chicken and Rice Taco Soup that is a cross between taco soup and chicken and rice soup. I love to use Minute® Rice for such dishes because I don’t need to cook the rice separately to make the dish.

One other thing I have learned from being sneaky when fixing dinner for my family, is that if I use Minute® Brown Rice in my soups, the family has no idea they are eating brown rice.

I love that I can slip in something a little healthier and more filling into my soups. It’s delicious and nutritious, plus it’s gluten free. What’s even better is the brown rice is ready in 10 minutes!!!!!!

Minute® Rice is available in local grocers nationwide with an average price of $2.35 per box. So it’s accessible and affordable. For more from Minute® Rice visit their Facebook, TwitterPinterest, or Instagram page.

Rice is a favorite food in our house, and we often have it as a simple side dish. My favorite way to use rice lately is in a delicious fried rice meal, which is also a great way to use up leftover meat and veggies.
