This is a great alternative to customary turkey soup. You can make it as spicy as you want depending on how much jalapeno membrane is used. I make a huge pot of it after every turkey I roast. The first time I made this I felt there was something missing, it needed to be creamy. So, a dollop of cream was all it needed. It's good with or without. This is a hearty soup. Enjoy!
