This soup is one of the dishes I came up with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving Day, my favorite holiday of the year! And I don’t normally end up with a lot of turkey leftover on thanksgiving, my turkey is irresistible (pat myself on the back) hahahaha…

But you don’t have to wait for thanksgiving to make this dish, roasted store bought turkey breast is available all year round and all you have to do is chop it to bite size.

.2 tbsp. Fresh Cilantro Chopped

.1 can 7 Oz green chili salsa Verde

.3 Lime juice

.1 fresh bay leaf

.1/2 tbsp. Red Chili powder

.1/2 tbsp. Jalapeño Pepper
