When I think of making soup, usually I cringe at the time involved and the thought of getting all the veggies--half of which I'll use and half of which end up rotting in the fridge. But this recipe gave me no such qualms. The canned goods were super convenient and the soup itself took no time at all. After four days of leftover turkey for Thanksgiving, this was a great way to finish up the rest. Since there are only two of us, I cut down most of the ingredients, but there's still plenty. Which is good because I know we'll be enjoying the leftovers.

I made this soup two days after Thanksgiving and used the turkey broth I made the day before from the leftover turkey carcass. This soup is delicious. Normally I'll change or substitute something, but I didn't have to on this one because it's great the way it is. I will definitely make this again!

Just made this last night with some left over turkey we had frozen. I substituted black beans for the chili beans (just a preference of mine) and probably ended up just about doubling the cumin and chili powder (I added what was called for in the recipe and then just kept tasting and adding as I wanted).

I'm not a big fan of "fiesta" flavor, but my husband loves it so I thought I would try this. It is fabulous! I put slices of avocado across the top with the sour cream. YUM!
