Ingredients
Instructions

Sauté onion in oil for 5 minutes. Add garlic, carrots and celery and sauté for 3 minutes. Add rice, tomatoes, broth, red pepper flakes or chili, honey and bay leaf and simmer 30 minutes. Form meat into 1″ balls and drop into simmering soup. Bring to boil, cover, turn down to simmer and cook 20 minutes more.

Serve with fresh cilantro leaves.

*Use plain tortilla chips. Heavily flavored chips will overwhelm the soup’s flavor. Whole Foods 365 Organic Tortilla Strips and  Trader Joe’s Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips are good.
