We all know how busy the fall season can be and I like to eat healthy but as easily as possible. I have two super active little ones so meal time is often SUPER interesting around my house. We run to soccer and other activities every week so I like QUICK!! That's why I love Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. It is so quick, easy and portable.


September often means a change in schedules for many families. Back-to-school season is in full swing; we’re starting to see fall-inspired flavors everywhere and thinking about food that will keep us satisfied in the cooler weather. Fall officially kicks off in September and so does the celebration of a mainstay for so many families with National Rice Month, which celebrates the rice harvest and honors the contribution of the U.S. rice industry to America’s economy.

Rice is an easy family staple that makes meal planning and prep easy for everyone, especially with products on hand like Minute® Ready to Service Rice since it’s ready in just 60 seconds. Plus, rice is versatile. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts can be made using this go-to ingredient. Keep Minute® Ready to Serve Rice in your office snack drawer for easy, wholesome desktop dining or snacking on the fly. It’s a versatile product that can be eaten for any meal occasion, from breakfast to dessert to a quick pre or post workout snack. 


Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is an ideal portable solution for a quick lunch or really any meal, because you can eat it on-the-go, straight from the cup. In just 60 seconds, you have fully cooked rice with nothing to add. Or, you can plus it up with a few other favorite ingredients you have on hand. If you’re looking for a wholesome option, Minute® Ready to Serve Rice provides easy portion control since it’s conveniently packaged in two individual single-serve cups.

I love soup recipes in the fall so I came up with a SUPER quick and easy soup recipe using Minute® Ready to Serve Rice that you can make in 15-20 minutes since you don't have to wait for the rice to cook!

Tortilla Soup 

2 cups chopped chicken breast, cooked
2 16 oz can chicken broth
1 cup salsa
1 onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 cup Minute® Ready to Serve Rice (your choice of flavor)
1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
Salt and Pepper to taste

Bring everything in the pot to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Top with Avocado, Cilantro, Sour Cream, additional chips and/or Cheese! And enjoy!
