Creamy Mexican Turkey Soup

Here is another recipe to use up that leftover Thanksgiving turkey. This creamy Mexican Turkey Soup is one from Recipe Girl, who I love.   It is also quite healthy for a cream soup, no butter or cream in this one. We all know that after our Thanksgiving feast we could all use some help with a good healthy dish. This was a great creamy soup with a little kick to it, but not too much of a kick. It was just the right amount of spice for my family.

  7. Made this soup tonight because it’s been really cold outside, and it was great! I had to puree the veggies in my food processor for my picky son, so I was nervous for his reaction, but he said it was delicious – yay! I made the cheesy rolls to go with it. YUMMY!
