I found this recipe in a book called "Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook" and I have not tried it yet, but I'm trying to get some stuff up here before I have to return the book. So if anyone tries it and has any comments, let me know. Hope you enjoy!

This recipe is pretty good - I don't think it is hot or sour enough (as written). But, that is easy enough to fix with addition of more vinegar and hot sauce. : )

I really enjoyed this soup. I will not go out for chinese again. I can make it myself and eat all I want. I did add some leftover turkey and green onions.
