This recipe was a great way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I didn't have smoked turkey so I used regular and added two teaspoons of liquid smoke. I used red beans instead of black because that is what I had on hand. My little guy can't do the jalapenos so the rest of us just added hot sauce to taste at dinner. It makes a large pot and is great with corn bread. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very good soup! I used Rotel for the canned tomato & spicy V8 added extra garlic but everything else I followed the recipe & it tastes amazing. I struggle with the leftovers from my husbands smoked turkey every year this soup is a winner!! Read More

We made this recipe as written except - 1- We probably doubled the garlic - because we always do. 2- It wasn't a smoked turkey. 3- We have younger ones so we passed on the Tabasco and used a few drops of the green Tabasco. (personally I would be happy with the pepper. My daughter said she liked it even better than the Panera Chicken Tortilla soup that we by at Sam's. "It tastes - warm." Simple and tasty! Definitely worth a repeat. Read More

I made this because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand at the time. It is not something I would normally make but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't put the jalapeno in but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I served it with a sprinkle of fiesta blend cheese and fritos and it was a bit reminiscent of chili frito pie. Read More
