We loved this soup. I used a sprinkle of chili peppers instead of the cayenne and it tasted great. I made it for a work luncheon and everyong loved it.

A really terrific recipe. We had fresh corn which really added to the taste. I used canned chicken which worked, but I am sure that the idea of using chicken leggs would have made it much more tasty. However, I did use my homemade chicken stock. LTE
