Recipe by ctrmom
My mother won $500 for this soup recipe. We always had it after Thanksgiving and Christmas with the leftover turkey in it. It goes together quickly for everyday dinners as well, when we usually use chicken instead. I think it's the seasonings that make it so good, warming you right through on a cold day.
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 cup cooked turkey or 1 cup cooked chicken, cooked and chopped
- 2 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
- 2 cups potatoes, diced
- 1 cup celery & leaves, chopped
- 2 cups broth, from the turkey or 2 cups chicken bouillon

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
