Beefy Wild Rice Soup

Living in central Wisconsin, we experience many days of snow and cold temperatures. I like to prepare soup often, especially this one. My family loves it. —Marilyn Chesbrough, Wautoma, Wisconsin

    I thought this was delicious. Other than adding some minced garlic, I followed the recipe

    I loved it! It has a lot of flavor for such a simple soup. I think sometimes I may add a bit of chopped carrot as well.

    I made this dish over the weekend for my family and they loved it! I changed the recipe up just a bit. I used 6 cups of beef stock, instead of the water, I added a clove of minced garlic, and I added a cup of sliced carrots. This gave the soup a richness to the flavor. I will definitely make this soup again.

    we liked this recipe, although it does need a little help with seasoning. I will make again, but will be adding some garlic, a little onion powder. Also, we think this might taste good with a little swiss cheese on top. Very good!

    Good but bland. The spices all need to be doubled. Also add onion powder garlic powder and dash of salt! Very good with modifications to flavor!

    I meant to say the baked chicken was cooked with black pepper and white pepper on both sides before adding it to the soup.

    I had some ground beef that I wanted to use up and found a winner with this recipe. I used 3 cans of chicken/mushroom soup since I didn't have mushroom soup and it was excellent. I added some cooked chicken also that put it way over the top. I had baked the chicken breasts in some butter and covered them with black pepper and white pepper. Thanks for the recipe.
