Bring on the leftover turkey and make some yummy.

Notes about this recipe.
This is a great use for leftover turkey or chicken. I like to freeze leftover turkey in two-cup portions for quick and easy meals like this.
Salsa verde has a fresh, tangy flavor that is delicious in this soup. If you’ve never used it, I suggest starting with half the amount and adding more to your liking. Especially if you make it fresh like me with extra jalapenos.
If you like more broth, feel free to use more. And if you like a thicker soup, just use a little less.
I used the homemade broth to give this a deeper flavor, but store-bought will work just fine.
I keep a variety of frozen vegetables on hand to make quick soups. They’re inexpensive and a huge time saver. You can also use fresh vegetables if you prefer.
