This leftover turkey soup is packed with flavor and veggies. As far as the meat goes, leftover turkey is great, it can also be made with leftover rotisserie chicken, or just about any kind of leftover chicken. However, if you need some leftover turkey ideas, this is the homemade soup for you!
You can also add your favorite vegetable combination to this turkey enchilada soup. I love the southwest flavors, rich tomato, chilies, beans, and corn. If you’re wanting to throw in some leftover green beans or corn, this is the recipe for you. As long as your base has a lot of flavors, you can mix and match your leftover turkey or chicken and just about any veggies you love.
How long is leftover turkey good for?
If the turkey is stored in an airtight container in the fridge, it can last up to 5 days, however, if you’re tired of turkey after your big meal, you can always put it in a freezer ziplock bag and freeze it for another day. It can keep in the freezer for 2-3 months. It helps to try and push as much air out of the bag as possible. This is help reduce freezer burn.
