    luvmybge's Note:

    Stock your pantry ahead of time to whip up this delicious satisfying soup. It comes together quickly for a nice meal. I got the recipe from Southern Living Magazine (Carol Michael Hewett, Texas). I made a few changes by adding celery, and adding 3 more cups of broth (because we don't like soup that thick). The original recipe called for 5 cups of water. I used part water and part chicken broth.

      Great recipe - I used cheddar cheese instead of velvetta and frozen carrots - but followed the recipe otherwise. I fed 4 adults and had a little left over. It is a hearty soup and a good spin on chicken soup. Definitely will make it again. Thanks for sharing.

      GREAT for a cold winter day! I've made this recipe a few times, and I always use the 1/2 broth, 1/2 water and it comes out great. I use all wild rice too, then add some garlic salt, onion powder and a bit of chicken bouillon. We eat organic here, so I found a recipe for "homemade velveeta"--I just make 1/3 recipe of that to use for this soup.

      This was good, we enjoyed and will make again. Makes a lot of soup and is a good use for leftover roast chicken. I used sweet onion, left out the broccoli, used 6 cups of homemade broth & 2 of water, substituted processed cheese with 1/3 cup shredded cheddar and 4 ounces of cream cheese. Also used leftover cooked basmati rice instead of Uncle Bens. Was good but I didn't put in enough salt & pepper, also tasted like it needed a little "something else". Maybe it would have been better with the seasoning mix from Uncle Ben's rice, not sure! Thanks though, was definitely tasty and a keeper for me!
