Chicken, brown rice, zucchini, and melted Monterrey Jack cheese, are mixed with green chilies, jalapeños, and creamy sour cream to make the perfect Southwestern casserole.
Prepare rice according to package directions.
In a large saucepan, combine cooked rice, broth, tomatoes, and cooked chicken. Heat over medium heat. Stir in green onions, lime juice, and corn. Pour soup into bowls, top with tortilla chips, tomato, and avocado. Garnish with lime slices and cilantro sprigs, if desired.
Get physical! Slap the cilantro leaves before adding them to your dish, as this adds more flavor and aroma to the garnish. If you prefer not to beat up your herbs, chop them instead for the same effect.
