Creamy Crock Pot Chicken Wild Rice Soup is a creamy and decadent soup recipe you can throw in your slow cooker and come home to an amazing meal that will warm you up on cold winter days! Wild Rice is a Minnesota staple and is best serve is a rich creamy soup.
Normally we would be suffering through snow storms and below zero temps, but it seems like the rest of the country is taking the brunt of the winter right now. I am not going to complain and quite frankly, I am rather happy about it! #SorryNotSorry
Listen, I don’t wish storms and blizzards upon anyone else, but I think it is about time us Minnesotans catch a break and get a mild winter. With that said, winter is by no means over, and my fingers and toes and arms and legs are ALL crossed and hoping we can make it through with the continued warm temps for an early spring for the farmers.
Ok, let’s be real, the farm is just a bonus. I am just plain selfish and want to not freeze my butt off! 🙂
