This is the best soup I've ever made - pure happiness (my family acutally calls it happiness soup because of the bright and vibrant color and how good you feel after eating) I do like chicken a little better and use bone in chicken breast instead of turkey and sometimes instead of cumin (if I am out) will use curry with great results. Yummy!!!!
Turkey & Squash Soup
This Southwestern-inspired turkey-and-squash soup gets a little kick from crushed red pepper and some zing from fresh lime juice. You can use leftover turkey or chicken (instead of the cutlets); dice it and add a few minutes before serving. Serve with cornbread.

I made this soup the other day with some leftover Christmas turkey. It was delicious! I added more turkey and squash than the recipe called for, so it was more of a stew than a soup. I will cook this again really soon!
I made this with leftover Thanksgiving turkey & it was A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I did not follow the recipe exactly because I had a bit more turkey, squash, broth, & thyme leftover then it called for so I just through it all in! I increase the amount of the other things to make-up for the extra ingredients. I added a little cayenne pepper too which gave it even more of a kick! I would def make this again :)
Easy to prepare with Thansgiving leftovers, I used green onions instead of leeks. I could have used more cumin, nice combination of ingredients.
I made it with ground turkey that I sauteed before adding to the soup. Turned out like a great turkey/corn chili! YUM!
