Reviews for Fiesta Turkey Tortilla Soup
"Very easy soup to throw together, and it received a thumbs up from everyone. I would think it would be better the next day, but I had no leftovers! Definitely worth a try."
"Been making a version of this soup for years. I add a can of Ro-tel or diced tomatoes and 1/2 c. rice plus some chopped onion, garlic ,cumin, chili powder and a dash of oregano to spice it up. It's quick and delicious!"
"Very easy fast and easy. Tastes great."
"Made some small additions, such as a tsp of cumin and thickened with masa flour otherwise all the same fast and simple ingredients. As a bonus our T-Day turkey had been smoked so it was bonus in the flavor department. Definite keeper in the recipe box."
"This was really quick and easy. I used shredded chicken breasts and it was delicious."
"This soup was very good. We opted to use crushed tortilla chips or tortilla strips salad toppings vs. making our own. Very good on cold night!"
"I made up this soup for lunch today. It was quick to put together, and had a very good flavor. I added one small jalepeno pepper finely diced to add a little extra punch. I also just used some tortilla chips that I put into the bottom of the bowl before ladleing in the hot soup. My husband even commented that he really enjoyed this soup. I think it is a keeper for sure."
