This is a quick way to add a homemade touch to canned soup and to put it in the category of comfort food. It is thick and creamy with added texture from crunchy wild rice and a subtle smoky bacon flavor.
My dear friend Shirley shared this recipe with me several years ago before she passed. I've been making it my own ever since. Every time I think of her, I make the soup. I sometimes add a cup of cheddar cheese at the end and melt it in for an extra measure of comfort. —Carol Brault, Woodville, Wisconsin
I stir together my chicken-and-rice cream soup whenever we’re craving something warm and comforting. Reduced-fat and reduced-sodium ingredients make it a healthier option.—Deborah Williams, Peoria, Arizona
