Black Friday Jerk Turkey Soup

Recipe by Chelley-Chelle

An "everything but the kitchen sink" concoction I made from leftover Jerk Turkey we bought from a Caribbean restaurant and other Thanksgiving leftovers (thus the name Black Friday). I wanted to make a soup with a Caribbean flair. I used homemade stock I made with the turkey bones but storebought will work just as well.
