(1) 14 oz can reduced-sodium chicken broth
8 to 10 small carrots, tops trimmed, scrubbed, halved lengthwise and cut in half crosswise. (chop smaller if desired.)
(1) 12 oz can carrot juice
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Sour cream and chopped green onion for garnish (if desired)
