If you have any leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I have a great recipe idea. This Tortilla Soup recipe is my newest favorite, and it’s a perfect way to use up your turkey leftovers. I served it tonight, and I couldn’t stop eating it. If you don’t have any turkey leftovers, feel free to use cooked chicken (or a rotisserie chicken is perfect if you’re in a hurry). You can also make this a vegetarian recipe by substituting vegetable broth for chicken broth, omitting the turkey and using an entire can of black beans. My 3 kids loved this soup, and they told me it is the best tortilla soup they have ever tried. I took this as a sincere compliment and good endorsement! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday! It was so nice to be with my family and catch up on some rest. I ran a 10K “Turkey Run” on Thursday, and I placed 5th in my age division. I’ll take it! Here is to a great week ahead!

It’s the perfect time of year for soups, and why not try something a little different such as this Parsnip-Potato Chowder? When I taught a cooking class recently, very few people in the class had ever cooked or tried parsnips.
