This recipe is the perfect way to use leftover chicken or turkey or just when you want a very hearty winter meal. If you cant get tomatillos then just substitute with regular diced tomatoes. Add red chili flakes if you like your soups hot and spicy. For serving suggestions you can add one or all of the following and let people choose. Avocados, sour cream, limes ,tortilla chips or a nice crusty bread. As always if a dish is not thick enough for you simply add a little cornstarch.
