Food Storage Friday: Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup

Another food storage recipe from Sarah!

This is one of my favorite recipes I have tried this year. I love soup, rice and Mexican food so on title alone it was a clear win.

When made with raw chicken it is a crock pot meal but since we are using canned chicken it can take as long or as short as we choose.

In a large saucepan add 2 cans cream of chicken soup, 2 cans chicken broth (or two cans water and the appropriate amount of bullion), 1/2 cup minced onion, 1 can Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies and 1 can Cheddar cheese (this is found in the soup aisle).

Bring to a boil. Simmer. I like to let it simmer for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to mix.

Add 2 cups cooked rice and 1-2 cans chicken (depending on your preference). Simmer another 5-10 minutes and you're done.

Serve hot with tortilla chips or bread.

I'm curious about the canned cheddar cheese also. It sounds yummy!

It's the cheddar cheese soup. It's found in the soup aisle. Sorry to be so confusing.

I am glad you set us straight on the cheddar cheese thing. I was getting rather excited thinking that canned cheese was an option-that would be cool!

I am not able to understand about "Mexican Chicken". I think chicken is chicken whether it's in New york or in Mexico.Adding rice in it making it bit fatty stuff i guess.
