Jalapeno Chicken Rice Soup

Jean Romero


This recipe is from my cousin Josephine, she makes a pot of this every week, we only do it about four or five time a year, I make so many other soup's I can only do so much. We love this soup and so will you. In this recipe I only use one jalapeno but it calls for two to three, I'm a lightweight and can only do one pepper.

  1. Place chicken, flour and seasoning salt in a ziploc bag, shake well, coating all the chicken, then in a large fry pan heat oil and cook cubed chicken till nice and golden brown, I do half at a time.
  2. Add the next six (6) ingredients and saute', then place this mixture in a large stock pot, pour in the chicken broth, grated carrots and bay leaf, bring to a boil, add rice, cook a minute longer, then turn the heat down to simmer, and simmer until the rice is cooked, stir often.
  3. Eat this with a good crusty bread or rolls
    Enjoy :)
