i made this tonight,since my throat is still sore as hell and swallowing is still a bitch from my surgery(damn breathing tubes).
here is what i used: 2 cans of chicken broth, 1 cup of diced yellow onions, 1 cup of chopped mushrooms, half a cup of minced tarragon, 3 tablespoons of cayenne pepper, and franks red hot sauce(to taste).
first, put the broth in a pot and get it hot and boiling. then add the onions, mushrooms,and tarragon, and let simmer for a few minutes. when it starts to boil again....add the cayenne pepper and a few shakes of the hot sauce. stir it all together and let it sit for a minute or two.
it was really good tasting, and a good bit on the spicy side. it'll really open your sinuses too!!
