This was delicious even in the summer in CA! Tweaked it a bit: used Costco's roasted chicken, 1 c. fat free 1/2 & 1/2 & 1 c. 1% milk instead of the 2 c. 1/2 & 1/2; added sauteed onions/celery & mushrooms; addedcapers which added a special touch; and the seasoning packet from the wild rice box rather than the ranch dressing packet. Marvelous...thanks for sharing!
I made this tonight. Easy! I also did NOT use ground beef. I used a rotisserie chicken that I pulled apart, seemed more appropriate.
The first time I made this was for a potluck for the teachers at my daughter's school so I didn't really get any, but I did get requests for the recipe. Last night I made a double batch for a 5 family potluck and most of it was gone at the end of the night. I used skim milk which may have affected the thickness. It was pretty ugly until you stirred it. I also would probably cut the ranch dressing some next time but over all it's a yummy and, yes, comforting soup. Next time I might try swiss cheese as that sounds like a good combination with the wild rice.
This was really good and pretty easy to throw together. I was a little confused on whether to use ground beef or chicken as people have said that they have used both. My husband said, "The recipe says beef, use beef." So I did. I only had 1 c. of cheese and ran out of carrots and onions, so I didn't use those, but it still tasted great. This recipe will be added to our dinner rotation.
really good! I did not use ground beef, but I think that is a typo anyway since the title is Chicken wild rice soup.I used a box of uncle ben's wild rice mix. I also added a quart of chicken stock. It was soooo good!
this was ok. i was alittle short on rice tho. not sure i'll make it again.
Love this soup! But use cooked chicken instead of ground beef.
I thought the ranch flavor overpowered this soup. I ate 1 bowl then threw the rest out. Sorry I couldn't rate it higher.
We enjoyed this soup. It was very different from my regular chicken wild rice soup, but a nice change. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand. Thanks!
