This is a great winter soup. Make it as spicy as you want. It's also a great way to get rid of leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

Directions

  1. Place a heavy pot over high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes without stirring until browned. Immediately pour in the chicken stock, and stir to release vegetables from the bottom of the pot. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the garlic, turkey, salsa, vegetable juice, hot pepper sauce, and lime juice. Simmer over medium heat until heated through, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

This was fantastic! We had a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving, so we had tons of leftovers and were looking for what to do with them. I doubled the recipe, added more garlic, fresh tomatoes, and a red pepper for color, also a bag of frozen mixed veggies and we added the turkey carcass and cooked it with the lid on. Cooked it for an hour or so, then it was even better the next day. Didn't need any salt or pepper. The tomato juice and chicken stock are salty. Wonderful soup, more like a stew!

Outstanding! Lots of flavors come together for a very satifying soup with just a little "zing". Family loved it.

I thought this was very good, mildly spicy, and easy to make. I used turkey thigh (skin off) from our local German market, yellow pepper because that was what I had on hand, and Pace picante sauce, medium heat. It is an excellent basic recipe which I will make again. Thank you, Ross B.
