first of all it is NOT a soup! Don't you know what you are doing? you are taking a traditional, delicious, food that you share with friends and family and you are putting TURKEY?!?! Try going to your local meat market (and i don't mean a bar) and get all the pork parts you can find and slow cook it for a few hours with traditional Brasilian spices... mean while drink some caipirinhas. Not too many otherwise you'll walk in zig-zag. try that instead!
