Chicken Sausage Tomato Rice Bean Soup

Not sure if the old wive's tale is true that on a Hot Day if you eat or drink something Hot you will cool of quicker? So far, for me during this extremely hot & humid summer in Illinois it has really worked out well. I find myself craving soups & salads on a daily basis. Ultimately, this is so much healthier then my neighbors who are grilling or barbecuing hot dogs, sausages, bratwurst's & burgers every day or night. This has also helped me to lose some weight as well, so this is a bonus.
