While growing up in Texas, I spent a lot of time helping my grandma cook. Lemon and cilantro add a deliciously different twist to turkey soup. —Margarita Cuellar, East Chicago, Indiana

Delicious and so easy. The change I made was using uncooked chicken instead of cooked turkey. I cubed the chicken and cooked it right in the broth. Also added a pint container of cooked rice leftover from a restaurant meal the day before; we like the flavor of lemon in soup, so I added 1/3 cup lemon juice. The cilantro gave it a nice additional layer of flavor.
