Arkansas is the top rice-producing state in the country, so this recipe definitely represents our region. I'm a member of the Craighead County Farm Bureau Women's Committee, and one of our main promotions is rice.

"Simple and delicious soup. I made with ground beef instead of chicken. Didn't have V8 so used whole jar of salsa and left out green chilies. Added a can of kidney beans."
