Turkey Soup

Chicken soup, move over - turkey soup is just as delicious, and theres usually plenty of meat leftover from the Thanksgiving bird. You can keep it simple and traditional, or give it an ethnic spin with Mexican, Thai, or Indian ingredients and seasonings. Whip up a batch and freeze it for lunches or dinners during the coming week.
