Turkey Overload: Soup To The Rescue

Holy cowbells I may never eat turkey again! How did I end up with so much? Nonetheless,  I refuse to waste food…period.  So I need a recipe that won’t make me feel like I am in leftover mode. As a huge fan of a hot pot of soup on a cold day, I figured I would do a spin on one of my favorite soups and substitute the chicken for turkey.
