Use your Leftover Turkey in this deliciousTurkey Wild Rice Soup. It is full of flavor and a great way to use your leftover turkey.
I wanted to share one more idea for using your leftover Turkey. Because my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is so delicious, I used it, I used my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to make this soup but substituted the chicken and noodles for leftover turkey and wild rice. It was a tasty and delicious way to use up the last of my turkey. I also made Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to go with it. Both of them were incredible!! I do not say this often, but I love these leftovers.

You can use chicken or substitute it for turkey and substitute the noodle for wild rice. This soup is super simple to make using your slow cooker.
