I love a good creamy soup recipe made with leftovers, and this turkey tortilla soup is the perfect way to use any cooked turkey you have from dinner. It’s great with light or dark meat, and is super flavorful. It’s creamy, spicy, and a total bowl of delicious comfort food.

I love how versatile this recipe is – you can add your favorite toppings or stir in a little sour cream or salsa if you prefer. I love topping mine with fresh sliced avocado to make it #extra. It’s also a great recipe to use up the leftover bits of tortilla chips at the bottom of the bag.

Grow Cilantro in Your Kitchen All Year Long

We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time. I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!
