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.

"This was a yummy soup and a great way to use up some leftover Thanksgiving turkey! I made my own turkey stock and used that as the base and it was delicious and very filling. "

This soup is delicious. I used ground turkey, added some frozen spinach toward the end, and also added a small sweet potato that I baked and mashed for a creamier texture. Excellent. :o)


Made this soup with chicken and pureed it just before adding chicken and corn. Excellent!


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!!!!


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 :)
