Red Bean Soup with Smoked Turkey

READY IN: 6hrs 30mins
Recipe by JHansen

I love this soup because of the "Cajun feel" to it, but it's not at all spicy. It freezes well, and it's a great protein source! Additional Cajun seasonings could be added if desired.

I had some left over chunked smoked turkey and used this recipe as a spring board for an idea. I had left over rice also. I cheated and used 2 cans of red beans. I added some stewed tomatoes and about 1/4 cup of dried green peppers. And I confess, I added some Penzey's cajun seasoning and 3/4 tsp of oregano. The combo of smoked turkey in Red beans and rice is a great idea and I'm looking forward to my left overs!!!
