This is my own variation of a classic spicy potato soup. the measurements for the seasonings and broths are all guesses as I never measure anything - just pour! Typically I am not a fan of tabasco sauce but I really love it in this recipe - it gives such a nice heat that is not overbearing but really hits you in the back of the throat! I have also used green beans in this soup with great results and since you need 24 ounces of tomato sauce I usually use a one pint (16 oz.) jar of home-canned tomato sauce and one regular store bought 8 oz. can. Overall this is just a nice hearty soup that will really warm you up on a cold winter day!
