Total Time

My sister served this to me for the first time and it was so scrumptious I just had to have the recipe. The cream cheese gives the soup an ultra smooth texture.—Kim Caputo, Cannon Falls, Minnesota


  • 1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cans (12 ounces each) evaporated milk
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed


  1. In a Dutch oven, saute the mushrooms, onion and carrots in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. Gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the milk, rice, chicken and cream cheese; heat through (do not boil).
