making soup today

sheilajoyce_gwJanuary 31, 2013

I am off to the store to get some celery and broth so I can make some chicken soup. I bought a can of white beans on sale and a can of diced tomatoes. The chicken thighs are defrosting, and I have a few vegetables, but I like celery to flavor the soup too. Do I dare add noodles or rice? DH hates noodles and rice, but not me!

Have you ever tried tortilla strips in soup?

They are great! Reminds me of dumplings!

Enjoy your soup!

I make mine like Glender - it is so good. I also add seasoning from the many, MANY Taco Bell packets that seem to breed in my pantry.

I add either rice or noodles, whichever I have. You could make the rice separately and add it just to your servings. It's too good to only have ONE serving!

I was going to suggest what KayJ did--cook the rice or noodles separately, and just add to your serving when you're ready to eat. A side benefit? They won't soak up ALL the broth overnight when you refrigerate the leftovers, AND the soup will freeze much better without the starch--if you're planning to store any that way.

You can always cook the rice or noodles with a little stock, if you want them to have a bit more flavor
