Turkey Tortilla Soup

Sherry Blizzard


You NEED this recipe after consuming any holiday turkey. I've made this delicious, hearty, crowd-pleasing soup for over 16 years. It only asks for 2 cups of your left over chopped turkey.

You will never cook a bird again without reserving turkey for this soup......GUARANTEED!
