An excellent alternative to the standard turkey soups that tend to get made after a holiday feast, this will remind your family and guests of warmer times! This version is mild enough that the kids have no problems with it. If you prefer things spicy (as I do!) then you can add your favorite form of heat in the pot or at the table! Enjoy!!
