  • Incredible!
    We really love this recipe. The only substitution I make is Turkey Kielbasa in place of the chorizo - no Trader Joe's around :( I use all chicken broth (no water). I'm making it tonight for the 4th time in 2 months! Thanks for the recipe. - 11/12/11

    I think it's nuts that the recipe lists 1 calorie of white wine! White wine isn't even an ingredient! Certainly not a major issue, but v. weird! making tonite without the chorizo. - 12/1/10

    I LOVE this soup! Only difference is I leave out the chorizo! My hubby even likes it and he's usually not into things like this! - 4/23/09
