"This recipe originally came from my pastor's wife," explains Michelle Isenhoff of Wayland, Michigan. "I've made a few changes for convenience's sake, and now it's a snap to whip up. It tastes even better the next day."
Hannah Barringer of Loudon, Tennessee suggests serving this delicious and satisfying recipe with corn chips, cheese, sour cream, and a small salad. “To save time, purchase vegetables that have already been diced,” she adds.
I experimented with various combinations, and this is the recipe I came up with. It's especially good to take to potlucks or share with friends. I often take a bowl to work to heat up for a fast lunch.
"One night when my husband and I needed a quick supper, I threw together this satisfying soup using only what we had on hand," shares Margaret Glassic of Easton, Pennsylvania. "It's a family favorite, and it's good for us, too!"
It's been 25 years since I cut this recipe out of a newspaper, and I've made it countless times since then. We like it so well that I always boil the leftover turkey bones and freeze the broth with turkey meat in quart containers, so it's available whenever I want to make soup.
