Bean and Turkey Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by MelinOhio

Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you, its a lot of canned beans and spices. My Husband goes Deer Hunting, actually camping (he is the cook) and I sent a giant pot of this for all the guys-it was a big hit. It smells so good and can be very spicy, so be careful with the jalapenos-(I used sliced in the jar.) I always make this after Thanksginving with leftover turkey.I usually double the recipe and use full cans.

Good soup for a cold day! Be sure to serve with some hearty cornbread. I took Melody's advice and doubled the recipe, freezing the leftovers. Spicy, in fact I would cut back the chili powder and curry since I thought it overpowered the other ingredients all of which I quite like. BUT it also was a great way to hide some leftover turkey. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
