Chicken Tortilla Soup

Kim Cleaves


Typically I make this with chicken but hey....we have a lot of leftover turkey. This is a cheater dump and heat recipe that I came up with a few years ago when everyone in my house was sick with a bad cold. An exceptional way to use up that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving.
