Mirj, I used your recipe for Don't Throw Away That Turkey Carcass for the broth. Instead of the Roma tomatoes and chiles I used Rotel. The soup was fantastic!! I used another avacado, sliced in thin slivers for garnish. This was wonderful! Thanks for another turkey soup recipe in my book.

This is very easy to make & a delightful twist on the old, tired, traditional turkey soup. I spiced it up a bit more with more than was requested amounts of the spices, chili powder & bottled "Southwest Seasoning". I used a fair anount of salt & served it with tortilla strips on top. My whol family loved it!

Yum - this was delicious. I used fresh cilantro and threw in some shredded cheese before serving and everyone loved this soup. Thanks for another great one Mirj!
