Stylish Eats: Southwestern Turkey Soup w/ White Beans

SOUP, SOUP, SOUP! I thought I would get bored with eating soup for lunch the entire month but I was so mistaken. I told the hubs that I had a taste for some sort of white bean and corn soup. The Hubs held down the fort this weekend and found this amazing recipe from For the Love of Cooking; of course he switched things up a bit and I loved the way it turned out.
