Southwestern Turkey Soup Recipe

This spicy soup is loaded with turkey, beans, corn and tomatoes. We like it really hot, so we tend to use all three tablespoons of jalapenos...and then some. It's so good on a wintry Midwestern day. —Brenda Kruse, Ames, Iowa

Delicious and easy... Next time I will at least double this recipe. Full of flavour but not too spicy... This will become my go-to recipe for leftover turkey methinks....

I make this every time we have leftover turkey. We grill our turkey and corn, which adds great flavor!

I have made this several times now & one of the best things about this recipe is how quickly it comes together. It's a real treat to be able to make a delicious meal without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Love the combination of the spicy flavors. If I don't have jalapenos in the house, I use canned diced tomatoes with jalapenos & it's just as good. I reduce the cumin to 2 teaspoons, increase the broth to 16 ounces, & use canned corn instead of frozen. Perfect every time!

My family and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! We have a family of 5 and I would suggest doubling it because we didn't have any left over. I made it last week and it was delicious. I made a turkey again today so that I could use the leftover and make a big huge pot of this soup. So yummy and great for a cold day!!!

Delicious! Flavorful and spicy but not too hot. My whole family enjoyed it. I doubled/tripled parts (used 3 different kinds of beans, 3 jalepenos and added an extra can of diced green chilis) so I could make enough to use all my leftover turkey. If you like cumin flavor you will love this soup.
