Semi Homemade Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I have been craving this soup for a long time now so I decided to finally make some.  I did not have much time for dinner and I had the wild rice soup mix in the pantry ,so I just added what I had around the house!  It turned out fantastic.  Definitely an easy meal to make especially as fall moves on in.  Husband approved.  This makes a ton I was able to feed 3 and take an extra cup for lunch while still freezing half for another fall day!!!

  • 1 package Bear Creek Creamy Wild Rice Soup Mix
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 8oz can of mushrooms
  • 1 bag frozen mixed vegetables (I used carrots, peas, corn, and green beans)
  • 1 lb cooked chicken

Bring 8 cups water to a boil in large pot then whisk in soup mix.  Add all vegetables and chicken then simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.  Add in milk and cream cheese and stir until cream cheese dissolves.  Let simmer on low for about 5 minutes and serve!
