Tasty combination of ingredients, especially like the leeks. Adding turkey cutlets for just the last few minutes keeps them tender. Those who love spicy can add more red pepper flakes at the table.
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.

Yummy flavors - so good! BUT next time I will cook the turkey separate. I was nervous as to whether it was cooked and ended up over cooking it - easier to cook the turkey on its own.
This soup is terrific...I used turkey sausage (cut into 2"in slices) and left over chicken breast...plus I had a bunch of butternut and cabbage from the garden...sooo yummy...the husband wants more!!!
Excellent soup for the kids.
Just ate a bowl of this soup for lunch and it's fantastic. Followed the recipe with just a couple exceptions--had only one leek, so added about a half cup chopped onion to sub for the second, used leftover Thanksgiving turkey and garnished with some chopped fresh cilantro. It is so delicious and one of the best ever uses of leftover Thanksgiving turkey. The added bonus is that it's so healthy. I won't wait until next November to make it again--I'll use the cutlets next time. Highly recommend adding the cilantro if you like it, because it really adds to that southwestern flair.
