Another Leftover Makeover

Last night I was trying to clean out the fridge since we will be getting groceries in a few days. In the back of the freezer I found a large Ziploc bag with leftover Arroz Con Pollo, a container of frozen cooked rice, a bag of shredded carrots, a chicken breast from a creamy baked chicken creation I had created and a single Sofrito cube. I decided to combine all of these and make soup.

I put all of these ingredients into the crockpot along with 8 c. of chicken broth and let it simmer all day. When it was done I removed the larger pieces of chicken and shredded them. The verdict? It was very flavorful but the rice was a little mushy (I happen to like it that way but hubby didn't). I served it topped with crispy tortilla strips, shredded cheese, a dolop of sour cream and a spoonful of salsa. It tasted great! There's plenty left for lunch today and I'm looking forward to another bowl :)

It was really good and even my soup-hating husband loved liked it :)
