"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!"
