A little something to keep you warm...Bobby's Sick Soup.



I had a friend who was a great cook, we were friends, about a decade ago, so I can tell this story now. She was in her late 40's & a great mom(though her kids were off in college), great wife, great friend.....she had one little indiscretion. His name was Bobby, yes she took a lov-ah, in her defense her husband was not a very good communicator but they are still together from what I hear.
One time Bobby was sick & she took him this soup with a nice loaf of bread & a down comforter to keep him warm.....she was a great girlfriend too! I remember stopping by her house & she had stored this soup in a giant ball jar & was headed over to see him.....she rolled the recipe to me off the top of her head, I think I got it right & quite frankly have never written it down....until now.....for all of you.

Bobby's Sick Soup*
1 rotisserie chicken
1 cup of mild slasa
3/4 cup of rice
1 can of mexi-corn
black beans(optional)
48 oz. of chicken broth
32 oz. of chicken stock

Put broth & stock to a large pot. Add salsa, corn & rice. Pick apart the breast of the chicken, tearing into pieces. Add to pot. You can simmer all day if you like or out it on Med./High until the rice is cooked through. Serve with a nice crusty loaf of bread, I bought a loaf of Pan Bigio at Giant Eagle OR if you are feeling ambitious you can hop over to Leslie's & grab the link to a homemade loaf of bread.....enjoy!
*I think I might need to come up with a new name.

That sounds like a yummy soup. I agree that it needs a new name, something more positive.

Love the story and this soup is going on next week's menu! I didn't even know there is a difference between chicken broth and chicken stock...I'll have to look it up.

The soup sounds tasty, although I have no idea what mexi-corn is! I don't think we have it over here. I love the bread link too. I will definitely be trying that.

It does indeed snow in the UK, just rarely where I am in the south. It has started snowing again now and will cause chaos in the morning no doubt!
Soup looks good though as with Kendra I am not entirely sure what Mexi corn is!
