Stretching the Soup Even More

A couple of weeks ago I posted about how we like to stretch a can of soup.

I told my daughter about it, and she thought the idea was great - not just for saving money, but because it tasted so good too.

She came up with another idea which we tried this afternoon for lunch.

She adds a bit more rice and some left over meat to the soup so that all the broth gets absorbed by the rice.

She uses a mexican flavored soup for this as well as tortilla wraps and some cheese.

She spreads the warmed soup mixture on the warmed tortillas and sprinkles it with the cheese.

She rolls them up - and voila - instant burritos, or fajitas, or what ever you want to call them.

We used the leftover chicken soup that we had on hand, added the cheese and wrapped it up - it was delicious.

I am so anxious to try the mexican version - it bet it is the best.

My girl is so clever!
