I make turkey dinner for pretty much every holiday but I also make it when it’s not a holiday so I can reap the benefits of the leftover turkey (the best part in my opinion)!! Leftover turkey is perfect for quick and easy meals and in particular, belly warming soups!
1 package HamBeens® Cajun 15 BEAN SOUP
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 cup diced celery
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
2 cups diced leftover turkey
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
salt & pepper to taste
parsley for garnish (optional)
Rinse beans and remove any debris.
Place beans, onion, pepper, celery, garlic, chicken broth, water, and turkey a 6 quart slow cooker.
Cook on high 5-7 hours or until beans are tender.
Add seasoning packet, sausage and tomatoes.
Cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Serve with cornbread.
No soaking is required for this recipe. If you do soak your beans, reduce water by 1 cup and check for doneness at 4-6 hours.
