Cheesy Wild Rice Soup Recipe

Cheesy Wild Rice Soup Recipe

We often eat easy-to-make soups when there's not a lot of time to cook. I replaced the wild rice requested in the original recipe with a boxed rice mix to make it even faster.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 package (6.2 ounces) fast-cooking long grain and wild rice mix
  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
  • 8 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 1/2 pound bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • 1. In a large saucepan, prepare rice mix according to package directions. Add the milk, soup and cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Garnish with bacon. Yield: 8 servings.

"All-time family favorite. Make it every Christmas eve. It's a tradition. I've been making this recipe for company and for family from my 1st taste of home cookbook 15 yrs. ago. I use wild rice. I have even purchased canned precooked wild rice. Double the recipe. You won't be disappointed."

"I would like the original recipe. We like "REAL" Wild Rice not the packaged combo. Thanks!!"

"I don't care for the taste of Velveeta, so I use an 8-oz package of shredded colby and monterrey jack cheese - the texture of this soup is really interesting, one of our favorites!"
