    I am going to use low sodium vegetable broth and skip the avocado. - 3/5/10

    If you criticizers look carefully the recipe notes 3 cups bullion - if you take 3 cups of DRY bullion this will give you that crazy sodium count. Everyone is so quick to criticize instead of actually giving something a try. - 3/20/09

    You could use chicken instead of turkey and make your own broth, that would help with the sodium content. If you buy low sodium broth, you could also make it with a rotisserie chicken. Much faster! - 3/5/09

    I liked this, it was nice for a change in menu. I wasn't sure about the avacoado on top but it added to it. Thanks for sharing! - 4/9/09
