Teamwright 2 years agoSo good!!! I didn't have turkey broth so I used 3 cans of chicken broth and a few dashes of tobasco. Also put in extra leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and a can of white beans.

Ammunro 2 years agoFound it a bit on the salty side. Next time I'll use 3/4 of the taco seasoning. If you like spicy, have your hot sauce ready to go! This is delicious with an extra kick. Enjoy!
