    This is a tasty and simple soup. I had cooked chicken on hand, so used that instead of turkey. Otherwise, followed the recipe as posted. I am sure I'll be making this again as I can see it would make a great "clean out the fridge" soup. You could throw just about any fresh or leftover veggies, rice, etc. and let your crockpot simmer all day. Thanks for this one, Debbbbbbb!

    I made this with a 4-oz can of tomato paste and beau monde seasoning. Yum, yum! I am going to save this recipe for after Thanksgiving.

    Very good soup. I made several minor changes to it to suit my family's taste, but the basic soup is there. I will certainly make this one again. Thank you!
