Tomatillo Soup With Rice

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Success® Rice. They must have known I need a few short cuts when making tomatillo soup with rice and they helped a girl out! As always, statements are 100% mine and yours may differ.

I feel like Gwyneth Paltrow has been staring at me for over a month. She’s wondering why I keep picking up her cookbook, only to mark pages but never actually make anything. She smiles at me with her perfect smile and white teeth and I can envision her saying, “quit being so lazy and start cooking!” OK, Gwyneth I’ll start cooking and the first thing that I’m making is a rift on your Easiest Posole recipe, tomatillo soup with rice.

Gwyneth needs to give me some slack. She doesn’t realize that I’ve been working 2 jobs, going to graduate school, trying to sort out the wreckage that is my personal life AND raise a healthy, happy 3-year old. I haven’t been cooking because I just haven’t found the time. I keep requesting that my political representatives somehow come up with 30 hours in a day but it hasn’t happened yet. So until they get with the game and make my life easier, I have to continue to find shortcuts in the kitchen.

Because Gwyneth is making me cook (don’t you love how I put all the blame on her), I decided to pick a recipe from her cookbook that was on the lighter side and that my daughter would eat. That’s how I landed on her posole recipe. I’m always looking for easy recipes and this sounded de-lish. My only problem was it lacked some oomph and that’s when it hit me. Add some Success® Boil-in-Bag rice and some fresh spinach to make it my own.

One of the short cuts I have found is using Success® Boil-in-Bag rice. Conventional rice takes 30-45 minutes to cook. During the week I just don’t have the time for that. Heck, I don’t even have time to measure ingredients! That’s why I love the boil-in-the bag options. I can fill a stock pot with water, throw in the bag of rice and in ten minutes I’ll have perfectly cooked rice. It’s that simple. And if I’m doing 2000 things at once, the white and brown rice can sit for 30 minutes before being served.


With four varieties available (whole grain brown rice, white rice, Thai Jasmine and Basmati) there is a variety that everyone will love. And because some family are big (The Duggars) and some families are small (Little People Big World) the Success Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success White Rice come in two different sizes: 14 oz and 32 oz.

Easy and healthy. Perfect for a weeknight meal.

Our soup turned out delicious (you can find the recipe here) and it made so much that we had plenty of leftovers to freeze. The addition of Success®  Boil-in-Bag white rice was just what this recipe needed to give it a little more bulk to make it a complete meal. So, thank you Gwyneth for forcing me to get back in the kitchen. 🙂

  1. Looks delicious! I love tomatillo salsa and haven’t had any in a long time..

  2. That sounds yum! I will have to give it a try! I don’t have Gwenyth’s cookbook yet, but it sounds like something I would like! And we love rice in our house! Definitely a must have!

  3. Oh how I love homemade soups. But clearly you are not in FL b/c it is way too hot to eat soups here right now. 🙂 The addition of instant rice is a great shortcut!

  4. i love soup! but i never trust skinny people who say they can cook, LOL

  5. Your tomatillo soup with rice looks amazing! I will have to check out the new cookbook by Gwyneth. It sounds like my type of cookbook!

  6. HaHa… this –> ” I keep requesting that my political representatives somehow come up with 30 hours in a day.” We love rice and you made this Tomatillo Soup With Rice look easy!

  7. Looks tasty! I don’t think I’ve ever had tomatillos. I’m sure that’s not true, but I can’t think of a time when I *know* I have. Hmmm…

  8. Wow. That looks delicious. I want that book now. We eat rice almost everyday at our house. Thanks for sharing where you got your soup recipe from. I want to make it now.

  9. I have heard such great things about this cookbook, and that soup looks divine! I think I’ll have to go ahead and get myself a copy.

    • The soup is super yummy and the addition of the boil-in-bag rice makes it hearty. I froze a bunch and will be eating it all summer.

  10. Yum! This recipe looks so tasty. Can’t wait to try it on my kids. Good thing I already have Success rice in the cupboard!

  11. Poor Gwyneth Paltrow gets a lot of flack for her diet from the media. But she looks absolutely gorgeous, so she must be doing something right. I would love to get her cookbook to try some things out {now that I know she has one}. 🙂
