    This was wonderful. The only thing I might change is to eliminate the green pepper and/or exchange it for celery. Just loved the dry sherry added in the end. Definitely will keep on my soup rotation for the fall. Luckily picked up a bag of wild rice when I visited Minnesota!

    I will change my rating to a 5 once I figure out what it's missing. I have had a lot of wild rice soup living in MN and this is a great soup, but the flavoring is a little....weak. Some spice is missing I think and I followed the recipe to a Tee. I will use this again once I figure out the missing ingredient for my families taste. Thanks for posting!

    Wonderful recipe! I doubled it because I happened to have enough of everything to do so--my whole family said it was delicious, and I thought so too! Thank you for posting! : )

    FABULOUS RECIPE!!! This is a much requested soup at my home now, even my kids friends now request it when visiting our home and always want 2nd and 3rd helpings. I like to add celery and broccoli when I make it, I always use leftover roasted chicken to make it (light and dark meat shredded)... it turns out awesome every time!!!
