Turkey Taco Soup

Made Famous By:  Laura Denney

This is a recipe that I have treasured since the early days of my marriage.  I was invited to a baby or a bridal shower, (Can't remember which....is that showing  my age???), and the hostess, Laura Denney, served this.  

Since then I have made this recipe at least 100 times or more.  Every time I make it everyone loves it and begs me for the recipe.  Very soon after it becomes a family go to meal for them too.  

That is why I labeled it as Top Recipes of all Time, cuz it is.

Recipes like this are exactly why I started this food blog in the first place.  Laura was famous for this recipe and I loved it so much I needed to have it.  Fast forward 10 years and now I am famous for making it in California.  Many of my friends are now famous for making it among their circle of friends and family.  And so it will go for many more years to come.  I love that by sharing something it can live on forever.  

I hope that you too can be famous for making this amazing Turkey Taco Soup too!!
