All You Jive Turkeys Clap Your Hands!

Turkey Soup made with the leftover broth, wings and legs of the Thanksgiving bird.  Not a new idea, but definitely a winning one.  It is often hard to use up the wings and legs in particular but a word of caution;  When you simmer long to get all the flavor, every inch of that leg will give it's meat but left in it's wake are dozens of tiny tendons that are dangerous if you happen to let one slide down your throat, so take the time to fish them all out.  

I added carrots, celery, peas, corn and diced canned tomatoes as well as chunks of potatoes, a bit of leftover wild rice and of course jalapenos to make this chunky soup burst with robust flavor.  A squeeze of lemon and cilantro to garnish.
