GarageRock you can take center stage with this one. A perfect blend of flavors for the leftover turkey. I must confess I did add an extra jalapeno. Read More

Made this soup with a few changes. I added some mushrooms and used Cayanne rather than Chili Powder. The soup is great just enough heat to get your attention!! Read More

I'm giving this 4 stars but only for one reason. We really loved this but I think it would be even better with a little more rice in it and I added a 1/4 tsp. chipotle pepper to kick it up as it was totally bland without it. With those changes this is a 5-star recipe. This soup and a cheese quesadilla made a yummy dinner for us on a chilly evening with just enough left over for my lunch the next day! Read More

This has a nice pleasant/mild flavor. If you are looking for spice you need to add more than the recipe calls for. I actually made Turkey stock from the leftover thanksgiving carcass that still had enough Turkey meat on it for the soup. Read More

Excellent recipe! I added a little more spice ie: garlic jalapeno and other peppers. Getting ready to make it again using leftover Thanksgiving turkey maybe a spritz of ham. Read More

Very tasty and easy to make. I had some leftover turkey and looked for a soup recipe that suited our family's tastes and that I had the ingredients on hand. This one fit the bill on both counts. Only changes I made were to omit the carrots and celery and add mushrooms. I also added a tablespoon of cumin and some chopped cilantro. Nice spice level and good taste. Read More
