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.

"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 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!"
