I LOVE this soup! I cut it down to two servings as DH isn't fond of tomato sauce of any kind. I, on the other hand loved the addition of the tomato puree. I've never thought of adding corn to my chicken soup, but I love the sweet crunch it adds to the texture.I only used a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce because of personal preference but don't leave it out as it adds to the flavor. Oh Stacy my friend, I'll make this often and will think of you and Pube each and every time. Made for cookathon in honor of Stacy.
