Spicy Shrimp and Rice Soup-Again!

Last week I posted a link to the recipe for Spicy Shrimp and Rice Soup. I'm posting it again to make sure you don't miss this one and to add my two cents on this big bowl of yummy.

It is a super simple, delicious and healthy recipe. Shrimp sauteed with red pepper flakes, garlic and oil are added to a pot of boiling broth, water, and instant rice, then served with limes, jalapeno slices, cilantro and tortilla chips. This is a great last minute dinner for adults and I think it can be tweaked a little for the kids.

My kids love soup and rice, but not soup with rice and shrimp! To make this more kid friendly, saute the red pepper flakes and garlic in the bottom of a large pot for 1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant, then add the broth and water and bring to a boil. Add instant rice, preferably brown, and shredded rotisserie chicken and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until rice is cooked. Save the spicy toppings for the adults and maybe offer the kids a little shredded cheese.
