    I made this per the recipe, except for leaving out the coconut milk and using 1 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and 1 14 oz can of regular diced tomatoes. The finished dish had a nice bit of heat to it. I toasted some leftover bread cube stuffing to serve in the soup, which used up some more leftovers. It was a popular dish with the family, though it just barely served the 5 of us. Best turkey soup-type recipe I've had yet.

    This was GREAT! I used the leftover turkey from thanksgiving. I used 1/2 a jalapeno pepper rather than a whole so it wasn't too spicey for my 3 year old. It had an incredbile taste with the peanuts and the cilantro. I had it for lunch and again for dinner. 1 note-- I measured out the 1 1/3 cup servings for my diet...and did NOT get 6 servings....not sure what I did wrong!

    Made this tonight and we loved it. Followed everything except I only used half a jalapeno (all I had), bottled garlic and bottled ginger, natural deli meat turkey (since the store didn't have cooked turkey breast), and Coors Light for the beer (a favorite in this house). Made the base last night and finished tonight, so it came together really fast. Yes, I would certainly make this again.

    This was a wonderful surprise! My husband and I thought the ingredients listed made for a weird combination, but they worked SO well together. I used freshly roasted turkey breast meat that I prepared myself in the morning. The soup came together quickly after that. We will definitely make this again for ourselves and for company!
