Salsa Verde Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I had my mom over for lunch last week and I was a little under the weather.  Decided it was the perfect afternoon to make a quick and easy  soup to warm my soul, haha :)

Not kidding, this soup was done in 10 minutes.  In all fairness, I had leftover chicken breast from the night before and found a bag of already cooked wild rice from Target!  You’ve got to check it out next time you are there.  Total time saver for soups!  Scroll down to see pics.

Warm, zesty and stick to your ribs delicious soup coming your way.  Enjoy!

    Uncle Ben’s makes a fast cook version of Long Grain and Wild Rice… 5 minutes. I use it all the time. I can’t wait to make this. Looks so good and I KNOW my husband will eat this up (sans avocado– he doesn’t like them, I do, so more for me!=))
