The Soup Gods smiled on me tonight!

After we had our Thanksgiving dinner last fall, not only did I freeze several packages of cooked turkey, I made turkey stock to make soup. It is traditional to make soup with the leftovers after all. I knew that I would need quick and easy meals later in the year.

For tonight's dinner I made Turkey Tortilla Soup.

And oh my god it was amazing.

I don't know if it was the combo of fresh cheese and fresh salsa from the farmers market. But it was truly amazing...

And you all missed it.

I bet the leftovers will be even better.

I can't wait.

Uhh...recipe?

Lets see what did I do.

1 onion chopped small sauted in canola oil, about a pound of baby carrots, sliced into discs and tossed in after the onion got soft. A handful of frozen sweet peppers chopped got tossed in after that. A heaping tablespoon of chili powder next and fried in the veggies and oil a bit. A quart of homemade stock, a quart of commercial chicken broth. Brought to a boil, tossed in the frozen turkey pieces (still had skin and bones), pulled them out after 15 minutes and boned and skinned the meat and tossed it back in. Tossed in about a pound of frozen corn kernels. Take off heat, let sit 5 minutes.

Served with tortilla chips, shreaded cheddar cheese, and fresh from the farmers market raw salsa.

If I had limes I would of tossed in the juice...that's good too.

And the leftovers were in fact FABULOUS!
