This is a very good chicken soup both for taste and helps you feel better when you have a cold or flu. It has a spicy edge to it and a great taste. I find it very soothing for days when you have a sore throat. This is gluten free dish for those who need one.

Ingredients:

4 Chicken bullion cubes.

4 cups of water

¾ cup cooked chopped chicken

1/2 cup frozen corn

1 medium carrot shredded.

1/2 cup diced onions.

1/4 cup of pickled jalapeños juice and all (you want more juice than peppers)

¾ cup of chopped peppers the more varieties of peppers the better it tastes.

1/4 cup brown rice

1/4 cup quick grits

1/2 cup of celery

1 clove garlic

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/4 teaspoon sage

Simmer until the mixture begins to thicken.

Bring back to a boil, shut off heat and let stand for fifteen minutes.

I'm getting hungry now.

I have added can of mushrooms, black olives, green onions, and modified the taste.

If you like it a little hotter add more white pepper. If its too hot add a little more honey.
