Friday Foodspiration: Turkey Tortilla Soup


As the weather gets cooler, this Turkey Tortilla Soup becomes a favorite at our house. Not only because it is warm and comforting, but because I can use bone broth. The turkey or chicken bone broth used in this recipe will ward off colds, boost immunity, and heal the body from the inside out.

You can easily find bone broth these days at the grocery store (on the shelf in cartons or the freezer section), order it online from my favorite brand Kettle & Fire, or make your own.

The second best part of soup . . . leftovers! The flavors combine beautifully in the fridge overnight and make a great lunch or dinner again the next day.
