Very different results… Earlier in the week, I had some leftover ground turkey so I made these turkey meatballs with a greek yogurt/sriracha dipping sauce. I am so paranoid when cooking chicken and turkey I totally over baked them so they were a …

Meatball Tortilla Soup

daisi - December 12, 2011

I love tortilla soup. I’m very picky about a few things in life, though, and tortilla soup is one of them. Hamburgers are another, but I’ll save that for another day.
