I am not sure where I got this recipe but have changed it enough to call it my own regardless... My prior boss used to love this soup so much he nicknamed me the "Soup Nazi" (Seinfeld episode) and said I should quit my current job (huh?) and open a soup restauraunt. I have quite a few other awesome soup recipes too. I will post them as time permits. Note: I NEVER follow recipes but this one is perfect the way it is. I won't change it. This is the best I have ever had. Enjoy!
