Creamy Turkey Chile Soup

Cream of Chile Turkey Soup

Creamy Turkey Chile Soup is the ultimate comfort food – perfect balance of flavors and spices, very easy to make, and a great way to use that Thanksgiving turkey. A favorite for everyone around here!

Got leftover turkey? Need an easy, scrumptious recipe that everyone will love? This soup is what I call the ultimate comfort food – just can’t get enough of it. It only has a half dozen ingredients and can be whipped together in about 5 minutes.

I used mild chiles for this. That’s to add that unique green chile flavor with almost no heat. The chiles and combination of spices just seem to create the perfect flavor balance. Can you use hot chiles? Sure, and I think that would also be very good but would also be a very different soup. Got some people who like it hot and some who don’t? Just divide the soup in half and add the hot chiles to one half. Another advantage of this soup is I always have the ingredients on hand – easy to whip up at a moment’s notice.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
