The Maesri Ground Chili In Soybean Oil is very hot so a dab will do you and I mean a small dab about the size of a pencil eraser will light up your world if you like things hot. If you aren't a spicy person DO NOT put the Maesri Ground Chili In Soybean Oil in your soup.
We got all of our products from a Asian Grocery store. They had all the fresh veggies you could want and they grow a lot of it themselves. The folks at the store helped us a lot in choosing how to make this soup easy for the first time. Very nice people and can't recommend them enough. The store is called Somsee Asian Food Market 2350 US-29, China Grove, NC 28023 Phone (704) 855-1001
A good way to save the broth, because you will have a lot left over, is to freeze it. We froze ours into small ice cubes. So we removed the concentrate broth before adding the 1 gallon of water and put the concentrate into an ice cube trays. All you do now is remove an ice cube and put it into a bowl add water and boil it, add noodles and the rest is easy.
