3 to 3-1/2 lbs. chicken
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of 3 limes
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/2 c. red pepper, chopped
1 t. green chiles, chopped
1/4 c. corn
1 t. garlic, minced
1/4 c. long-cooking rice, uncooked
salt to taste

Cover chicken with water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer for about an hour, until chicken is very tender. Remove chicken to a plate, reserving 4 cups broth in stockpot. Let chicken cool slightly. To reserved broth, add tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and Worcestershire sauce; simmer for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, chop half the chicken meat and set aside; reserve the rest for another recipe. Stir in remaining ingredients except garnish; simmer an additional 20 minutes. Stir in chopped chicken. Garnish individual soup bowls as desired. Serves 6.
