Leftover Turkey Tortilla Soup

For the past 3 years I make an emergency text to my friend Tamara, to get the recipe she shared with me 4 years ago for this turkey tortilla soup that was delicious and most importantly EASY!

I figured I need to put it some place where I can get to it after each holiday instead of bugging her again..and again...and again!!

  • Leftover turkey carcass with some turkey meat left on it
  • Chicken broth (low sodium)
  • Regular size can of Rotel
  • Can of Black Beans (low sodium) -drained
  • 1/2 Large onion - diced
  • Avocado - diced
  • Poultry seasoning/rub
  • Tortilla chips
  • Shredded cheese

  • Put turkey carcass in crockpot with enough chicken broth to cover most of it. Cook on high for several hours until remaining turkey falls easily off the bone. I stirred occasionally and helped break the carcass up a bit. Sprinkled some poultry rub in for a little extra seasoning.
  • Remove turkey bones, use slotted spoon to get the little pieces.
  • Add in Rotel, drained black beans, onion cook for 3-4 hours on lowland let all the stuff meld together (the longer the more tastier it got!)
  • To serve: I like pouring mine over a handful of tortilla strips then garnished with avocado, and some shredded cheese
