Choose one of The BEST Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Turkey Soup Recipes to turn your leftover Thanksgiving Turkey into delicious turkey soup!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day and I hope you’ll be using some of our 50+ Recipes for a Slow Cooker (or Instant Pot) Thanksgiving to make your Thanksgiving dinner prep just a bit easier! And once dinner is over a lot of you will probably have leftover turkey staring you in the face, so I’m updating this post to give you The BEST Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Turkey Soup Recipes (plus Honorable Mentions). These are turkey soup ideas that are a bit more interesting than the usual carrots, celery, and noodles turkey soup variations that often show up after Thanksgiving.
But before we get to the recipes, 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; I hope you enjoy your day and then make at least one of the soups we’ve featured for The BEST Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Turkey Soup Recipes! At my house I’m having a huge Thanksgiving dinner with six of my siblings and a lot of extended family members! And a few of those people are staying at my house, so after I post this I’ll probably take the rest of the weekend off and enjoy spending time with my family. Hope you have a great day too.
