Turkey Soup with Lime and Chile
I made this soup with the turkey stock I made from our leftover turkey. Before we made stock, we salvaged the meat from the bones to include in the soup and got a surprising amount out of it. The long and short of it is that this soup was awesome - turkey broth flavored with mirepoix and a bit of chile, used to make a soup with turkey, cilantro, scallions, lime, avocado, and some crispy tortilla strips. (I made these in the oven instead of frying them on the stove.) Ken brought some to work for lunch and sent me a text saying how amazing it was that turkey soup could be this good - and it wasn't the first time he was eating it. We froze some turkey and broth to have this soup again later in the winter. I can get the toppings anytime. I'm looking forward to it already.
