Ten Amazing Recipes for Slow Cooker Turkey Soup featuring from-scratch ingredients and tested by food bloggers!

It's Friday morning a lot of you probably have leftover turkey staring you in the face, so I thought I'd spotlight this post from last Thanksgiving with Amazing Recipes for Slow Cooker Turkey Soup that are a bit more interesting than the usual carrots, celery, and noodles turkey soup variations that often show up after Thanksgiving.

But first, did you realize that turkey and chicken are pretty much interchangeable in soup recipes?  So if you have leftover turkey, you can use a recipe that calls for leftover chicken, and if you don't have leftover turkey you can use leftover chicken instead.  You can also substitute diced, cooked turkey in pretty much any recipe that calls for cooked ground turkey, but add the cooked turkey towards the end of the cooking time so it doesn't all shred apart. 

And Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone; hope you enjoy the Slow Cooker Turkey Soup ideas!

Of course I like this CrockPot Turkey and Wild Rice Soup because Stephanie from A Year of Slow Cooking adapted it from a stove-top soup recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen!

Who doesn't love Turkey Pot Pie, and I think this Slow Cooker Turkey Pot Pie Soup from 365 Days of Slow Cooking sounds like the best of both worlds.  Karen uses frozen hashbrowns, but you could use grated leftover potatoes too.

This Spicy Slow Cooker Soup with Ground Turkey, Pinto Beans, Red Bell Pepper, and Green Chiles from Kalyn's Kitchen is definitely one of my favorites.  If you're making with leftover turkey, just add it the last hour of cooking time so the turkey doesn't shred apart.

Finally, this Slow Cooker Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup from Center Cook sounds so delicious. I've seen a few other versions of this recipe made with turkey so I know it will be good; just add the cooked turkey towards the end of the cooking time.  The recipe calls for packaged long grain and wild rice, but if you don't want the packaged stuff you can substitute your own rice and wild rice.

  1. Love the idea of making soup with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, especially with the cold temperatures this week.

  3. Kayln-I have a question. This is my first visit to the crock pot site and I am slightly confused. Are these supposed to be "diet friendly" recipes or only if they say so in the labels at the bottom? Looking at some of these I don't think they're obviously diet even though they all sure do look good!

    1. Susan, you can sort recipes by diet type by clicking Recipes by Photo and picking the type of diet you want. And the tagline "Healthier Recipes from Food Blogs" refers to the idea that these recipes don't contain processed foods, therefore they are "healthier" than many crockpot recipes out there. But definitely not every recipe is suitable for all diets.
