Once Again, Another Mmmmm Good Recipe

My friend, Kari, is coming to visit this weekend. This means I get to cook!!!! She arrives today, so I have this yummy soup on the stove ready for her when she gets here. I know you guys will love it too.

This recipe is compliments of my friend, Mary.

Wild Rice Soup
1 T. Oil
1/2 c. shredded carrots
8 oz. cubed ham
1 6 oz. box long grain and wild rice mix (Uncle Ben's fast cook)
2 cans chicken broth (14.5 oz)
Onion flakes--a couple shakes
2 cans evap. milk
2 T corn starch
Sm. pkg. sliced almonds

Heat oil in kettle. Add carrots, ham, rice w/seasoning packet, onion flakes, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. When rice is ready add evaporated milk (mix the corn starch in with a little of the evap. milk and add it too.) Add almonds. I usually add regular milk to this because I don't like it this thick. Enjoy.
