There is nothing more cozy than sitting down with a hot bowl of soup on a cold winters night.  This is another recipe passed down to us from Jason’s mom but instead of using ground beef like the recipe called for I chose to use lean ground turkey. It’s a hearty soup which has a little bit of spice and lots of flavor. This simple throw together soup cooks for 1 to 2 hours on the stove top or in the crock pot for 6 to 8 hours. It taste even better the next day as all the ingredients are able to blend together. Yay for leftovers.
