I never have a recipe when I make soup...but I always have something in my mind...a reason, or an inspiration.
Lilly was sick. I made a turkey...there were leftovers....so there's my reason...
I had lunch at Chili's the other day with LP and Sandy -- and their Chicken Tortilla soup was DELICIOUS...so, there's my inspiration.
I chopped a large onion, and five ribs of celery...then sauteed them in my soup pot with a little oil/butter. When they were soft, I added some chicken soup base and water...then, I put in the turkey legs and wings into the pot to cook the meat off the bone.(simmered for about an hour).
I removed the bones, and added some cans from the pantry: corn, black beans, two cans of salsa...
|I shredded the leftover turkey meat...and added it back into the soup.|
|I thought it was a little flat, so I added a packet of Taco seasoning...|
After I ladled it into my soup bowl, I added a dollop of sour cream.
|Oh, yes, this is some seriously good soup. Maybe my best effort yet...|
but, then again, I'm trying to make better choices!!
