"FANTASTIC! Made this yesterday as its getting cold in Upstate NY! Followed the recipe exactly with only one change, rather than ground meat, used sliced fully cooked Polish turkey sausage as I had it on hand. This soup is so easy and versatile, as you can add what ever veggies you like. This is a keeper in my recipe box & look forward to making it over & over!

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe with us all."

"Made this for the second time tonight. So delicious. Doubled the broth because It needed more so added more spices as well. Served with avocado and olives for garnish as well as chips and cheese. Family absolutely loved it!"

"This was very easy to prepare using common ingridients. I used a store bought roasted chicken to cut down on prep time. I added tortilla chips, cheese, and avacado as toppings. My family ate the whole pot in one sitting."
