I wasn't quite sure about using beef broth in a poultry soup, but it actually tasted good. It was plenty salty enough, even though I used low sodium broth. I ended up pouring in a couple extra cups of broth to make it more "soupy". I scaled back on the pepper to a half-teaspoon, and that was fine for me. My husband, on the other hand, added tobasco sauce to his own bowl to give it more kick. To each his own!
I was looking for a soup recipe to use up my leftover turkey, and something that didn't require me running to the store. All the ingredients to this were in my pantry. It had a great flavor and was so simple to make!
