Wild rice help!

Hello guys,

I am cooking squash stuffed with wild rice for a belated Thanksgiving. I haven't cooked wild rice before. I've simmered it for 50 minutes and it has 'popped' like it said on the packet, but it's still quite firm. Is it supposed to be like this? Or should it be soft like normal rice?

In my experience wild rice is always tougher because it has that thick shell. I would eat it but it probably wouldn't hurt anything to cook it a little longer.
wild rice stays firm and chewy, but it is fine to eat. i usually mix mine with regular brown rice.
