Turkey Taco Soup
I love soup. I especially love making soup in my slow-cooker. Come dinner time this warm, filling meal is ready with very little prep.
At Thanksgiving I cooked up a giant turkey and after our meal I put bags of this turkey in the freezer for future meals. Today, I used a bag of cooked turkey breast to make this soup. You can also use uncooked turkey breasts, or even chicken breasts (cooked or uncooked). You can also use a rotisserie chicken. Total flexibility here.
We served up this soup with easy Puff Pastry breadsticks.
And the leftovers, if you have any, are fantastic!!
Use that leftover holiday turkey (or chicken) to whip up a delicious dinner of Turkey Taco Soup. Made in the slow cooker, this is an easy meal for any time of year!
- 3-4 cup shredded turkey (or chicken)..or use raw turkey breasts
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 16 oz jar corn and black bean salsa
- 32 oz chicken stock
- 15oz can corn, drained
- 15oz can creamed corn
