Cheesy Ham 'n' Rice Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a real gem! After tasting a similar soup at a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, I came up with my own version. Everyone who tastes it says it's wonderful. Adding the almonds at the end gives the soup a fun crunch. -Nicole Weir, Hager City, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW

This is my favorite soup to make. It makes a large batch of super savory soup. When I take leftovers to work, co-workers are jealous.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2013

I added 8 oz. sliced mushrooms, just because they needed to be used. A great addition, but would be good just the way the recipe is written. This was an awesome recipe! It is flagged as a new favorite.

MY REVIEW

I don't put the ham in it because I'm vegetarian, and I don't use the veleeta. I substitute with a different cheese.
