This soup is to die for! My friend Jan makes it for potlucks and I can never get enough. It is the best, yummiest, soup around. Good for those cold winter days and those times when you need comfort food. I don't even want to think about the calories....

Very good soup. I used chicken but I think ground beef would be just as good!

Oh yeah! This was super yummy. I'm putting it into my regular fall/winter-time rotation. I made as directed. I used Uncle Ben's Original Wild Rice. I think it's closer to a chowder than soup, but could be thinned out if you wish...it doesn't need it. Seriously good soup! Try it. Update: It was even better the next day. What's with the title chicken and wild rice soup? Other than the broth, there's no chicken. :-)

I made a double batch of this soup for a progressive dinner. I followed the recipe exactly... except that I doubled the amount of rice since I used a blend of wild and brown. I used 2% milk and it was still very creamy. I asked the people who came to help me come up with a rating and they gave it 10 stars until I told them 5 was as high as you could go. 4 people have already asked for the recipe and I directed them to this site.
