I came across this amazing recipe while looking for something to make w/leftover turkey from Xmas. I boiled the turkey carcass and used the stock instead of water-but followed the recipe exactly otherwise. It was absolutley fantastic and my husband loved it too. I actually made a double batch and we ate it for a week w/o getting sick of it. Top it w/cheese or sourcream...Mmmmmm!



A busy day winner! I made this in 10-15 minutes, put it in the crockpot on hi and served 2 hours later. I have a smaller crockpot, so added only 1/2 the corn and skipped the tomato soup. I intended to add some tomato paste if it was too thin, but it was not needed. The cheese, sour cream and crushed tacos were perfect. It was a hit with my family - everyone wanted seconds.

I am so glad I discovered this recipe when searching for a turkey soup recipe to use up the leftover Xmas turkey. It was awesome! Very simple to make and it was super tasty. We had some friends over for dinner and everyone loved it so much that we all had at least seconds! I followed the recipe pretty closely except I was out of cumin so I used cayenne pepper. I also used Italian diced tomatoes and fiesta tomato soup instead of plain diced tomatoes and tomato soup. I will definitely make this again especially when we have leftover turkey. It is much better than plain old turkey soup.
