Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Creamy chicken wild rice soup

This creamy chicken wild rice soup is made with carrots, celery, mushrooms, chicken and wild rice with a creamy, rich base sauce that is delicious. It’s a perfect soup to eat on chilly days!

 

I love making soups for dinner when it’s cold and chilly outside because it warms me up inside and out. And this creamy chicken wild rice soup is another family-favorite soup recipe that hits the spot on those chilly days.

Whenever I tell my husband I’m making soup for dinner, he comments how good that sounds to help him warm up after working outside in the cold all day long.

Something I love about this easy chicken wild rice soup is it has a rich and creamy base sauce that brings together the flavor with the vegetable broth mixture. One thing about this base sauce is that you’ll want to use the Rice a Roni Long Grain and Wild Rice here because it has a seasoning packet that you’ll use to flavor the sauce. It really adds to the taste of this wild rice soup.

Before getting to the creamy wild rice soup recipe, here are some questions people have had:

Personally, I think this is the best wild rice soup. But of course you’ll find variations of other wild rice soup recipes out there, and they are probably delicious too. But give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think.

After making soup for dinner, I don’t always want to spend a lot of time to make something else, but I do like to have bread on the side.

Two easy bread recipes that don’t require a lot of time to make is this sweet cornbread recipe and this light and fluffy biscuit recipe. Add honey or jam to the top, and they taste delicious!

Another side option that goes well with soup is almost any variety of salad.

 

So how do you make wild rice soup? Here are the directions of how to make this creamy wild rice soup:

In a large pot, sauté the celery and carrots in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add in the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes more.

To make lasagna from scratch, first cook the sausage or ground beef. Add in the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes.

Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.

Cook the noodles for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse noodles with cold water.

In a medium bowl, combine the egg, Ricotta and Parmesan cheese.

In a 9×13 baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of the beef sauce on the bottom. Layer half of the cooked noodles on top of the sauce. Overlap noodles as necessary to fit. Spread half of the cheese filling on noodles. Top with half of the remaining beef sauce and half of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle additional mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over top if desired.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

How Do You Cook Lasagna In A Crock Pot?

To make lasagna in a crock pot is quite simple.

Start by browning ground beef. Add in chopped onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, oregano, and basil, and simmer about 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Combine everything in the crock pot by spooning part of the beef and tomato mixture into the slow cooker. Break uncooked lasagna noodles in half and arrange them over the beef mixture. Top with the cottage cheese and mozzarella mixture. Repeat with another layer and finish with remaining beef mixture.

Cover crock pot and cook on low setting for 4 hours.

About 10 minutes before you eat, in a small bowl, combine mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle it on top of the lasagna. Cover and let the cheese melt.

WHAT DO YOU EAT WITH TACO SOUP?

For our family, we like to add tortilla chips or Fritos on top. We also like to add shredded cheese and sour cream.

If you want some ideas for sides, this simple and quick taco soup would taste great with sweet cornbread, light and fluffy homemade biscuits, or easy Spanish rice.

HOW LONG IS TACO SOUP GOOD FOR?

Taco soup with cooked ground beef, when properly stored in an airtight container, will last for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. If you plan to keep it longer than that, then you’ll want to freeze it (See below).

 

CAN YOU FREEZE TACO SOUP?

Yes, you can freeze taco soup. To freeze the soup, put it in airtight containers or re-sealable freezer bags. Label the soup with the date and put it in the freezer. One tip is to freeze the taco soup in individual portions so you can take it out and eat it for lunch. The taco soup should be good in the freezer for 2-3 months.

When you are ready to use the taco soup, pull it out of the freezer and thaw it in the fridge for a few days. You can then heat it up on the stove or in the microwave. You could also put the taco soup in a slow cooker on high for 2-3 hours to heat it up.
