Heavanly Smoked Turkey Soup in the crock pot

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s January. Left over turkey abounds in freezers across America. Here is a delicious, warm idea to use some of that up and one of the best soups I have ever eaten. Also, It’s done in the crock pot which is one of my favorite ways to fix anything. I cook for 10 people a day so I am using a really large crock pot. You could reduce this recipe down to fit yours or you could just buy a really big crock pot and freeze the left overs for days when you dont wanna cook. This keeps like a dream in the freezer.

ingredients:

1 Stick of Butter

1 bell pepper chopped

1 stalk of celery chopped

1 onion chopped

1 can mushrooms

1 can chopped green chilis

 I family sized can of cream of mushroom soup

4 to 6 cups chopped/shredded smoked turkey

2-3 drops of liquid smoke if you don’t have smoked turkey

3 packages turkey gravy mix

egg noodles

salt

pepper

 

Step 1: Turn crock pot on high and dump can of cream of mushroom soup in the crock pot to warm.

Step 2: While its heating, Melt stick of butter in large saucepan and saute onion, bell pepper, and celery until tender. Add Mushrooms and green chilis and saute for 5 minutes longer. Dump into crock pot on top of soup.

Step 3:  Add turkey to crock pot. If you have a smoked turkey already, omit the Liquid Smoke. If not, Just use a few drops. No Seriously that’s all you need. Dont go crazy with it. It only takes a little bit to get a big  job done.

Step 4:  In sauce pan, add  3 cups of water and whisk in the turkey gravy mix.  Allow to come just to a boil and pour it into the crock pot. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir to mix ingredients. Turn crock to medium/ low and cook 4 to 6 hours.

Step 5: Either power clean your house or watch Investigation ID while eating the last of the Christmas cookies. Your choice will not effect the recipe.

Step 6:  About 30 minutes before your ready to serve. Cook pasta for about 6 minutes. Drain and add to soup.

Step 7: Grill ham and Cheese sandwiches to  serve with the soup. This is dinner. OR Supper. Depends how you were raised.
