Very good soup! This is a good way to make something a little different.

Prepared according to directions and soup was easy to make and tasted great. You can't get soup like this out of a can. Making soup again this time with chicken thighs instead of turkey.

This soup got a unanimous 5-star rating tonight at dinner. My 3yr old DS kept taking a slurpy spoonful, flexing his muscles, and saying "see how strong this soup makes me?" I used a smoked turkey drumstick and three chicken drumsticks, and the subtle smoky flavor was also very good. This soup was served with a tomato-basil chopped salad, and chunks of whole wheat bread, for a fantastic meal. Thanks, mydesigirl! Made for PAC Fall 2008
