Left Over Turkey Fiesta Soup


Turkey is one of those things that I love to cook – it is economical, easy, and can feed our family of six for several days. However, one can only eat ‘just turkey’ for so many days, right? So, I am forever trying to play ‘hide the _____’ {you know, it’s kind of like hide the ham at Christmas} Sometimes to create something new all you have to do is think of one of your other favorites – well, that just so happens to be Mexican!

A cup of this, a pinch of that – lets have a fiesta!

Left Over Turkey Fiesta Soup Recipe - Tired of playing hide the turkey? Put a spin on it and make it Mexican - lets have a fiesta!

Sharing my happy homestead’s turkey fiesta soup recipe after having had quite a few inquires about the soup which I featured on my Instagram feed –

Disclaimer;  I tend to cook without measuring and gauge more by taste so I will do my best to give an exact replica but, please note none of my recipes ever quite taste the same.
