Cheesy Wild Rice Chicken Soup Recipe
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 5 cups of chicken stock (or water)
- 1 Box of Wild Rice*
(rice & seasoning packet)
- 2 cups chicken, cooked and chopped
- 8 oz. package of Velveeta, cubed
- 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
Step 1: In a large stock pot, cook onions and carrots in a small amount of olive oil on medium heat. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so to get the onions translucent.
Step 2: Add chicken stock, seasoning packet from the rice, and chicken. Bring to a boil then add wild rice and seasoning packet.
Reduce heat, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3: Add soup and cheese. Continue to cook the Chicken Soup Recipe until cheese is melted.
You can serve this Cheesy Wild Rice Chicken Soup Recipe as soon as the cheese is melted but the longer it cooks the creamier it becomes.
Enjoy it with cornbread and a salad for dinner.
Are you looking to stretch your grocery budget? It’s super easy to use leftovers to make the soup.
Instead of the chicken, turkey, smoked sausage, or pork tenderloin could be used. This chicken soup recipe can easily be prepared as a crockpot recipe!
Hope your family loves it as much as mine!
