Let soup simmer for about 20 minutes covered, until all items become tender.

Add the hot sauce, vinegar, cream, and parmesan and stir well to blend.

For a thicker soup, reduce the liquid by simmering longer before the final cream is added. Use a hand-held blender and puree soup to a smooth consistency, taste, and adjust seasoning as needed.
