A great new recipe!

Rod and I both love this, I'm sure partly because we can use his homemade, onionless, zesty salsa to give it zip.
I don't bother making the cilantro chile cream, just put cilantro in the soup, and sour cream on the top.

Mexican Chicken Soup with Cilantro-Chile Cream

A finalist in the 2002 ORTEGA "Create a Fiesta, Win a Siesta!" Contest, this dish was submitted by Julie DeMatteo of Clementon, New Jersey. This soup combines chopped chicken, corn, black beans, fire-roasted chiles, rice and chicken broth in a flavorful soup, topped with a garnish of sour cream blended with cilantro, lime juice and chiles.
