Hinckley, Minnesota’s Bonnie Erickson shares a comforting, cool-weather soup that’s chock-full of homey, harvest goodness. “I’m always being asked to make this recipe for friends,“ she adds, “and there‘s never any left over!“
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.
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
