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

Quick and easy, this turkey tortilla soup recipe is a tasty way to use turkey leftovers. It seems like a lot of chilies but trust us... it works and adds so much flavor. Depending on the taco seasoning you use, you may have to add a bit more salt. This simple soup is warm and comforting. Topping with tortilla chips and cheese is yummy.
