I made this with chicken instead of turkey because it's what I had on hand, plus we added some no-yolk egg noodles. Someone gave me a bag of 15-bean mix and I had no idea what to do with it (we eat tons of beans, but not like that), and this seemed way better than the traditional soups. I don't know how the traditional is, but I really liked this, and the kids who often complain about soup ate two huge bowls each, and asked for a third! Thanks!
