Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large stock pot, add olive oil and jalapeno. Sauté pepper until soft and fragrant, 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Meanwhile, measure out the rice. Put rice in a strainer/fine colander and rinse under cold running water until water runs clear. (This removes some of the starch.).
  4. To the stock pot, add the brown rice, onion, tomato sauce, seasonings, pinto beans and diced tomatoes.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir pot, cover and simmer 30-45 minutes (until rice is done, according to your package directions).
  6. To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Add crushed corn tortilla chips and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.
  7. Enjoy!
