The smoked turkey makes all the difference.

Top Review by Martha Cooks

This was so yummy. I did change a few things. I added about 1/2 cup of diced onions, 1/2 tsp of salt. I only had dried chives. I put 3 tsp of dried chives in. I used green split peas (couldn't find yellow). I used homemade chicken stock. That always makes such a difference for me with soups. Also, I'm assuming that the dried tomatoes are sun dried tomatoes. I bought the jared kind and chopped a little bit to make smaller pieces. The key to this is the smoked turkey. I used leftovers from my husbands last hunting trip. The turkey was a Wal-mart purchase... not a result from hunting. Ha! This soup needed to go longer than 7 hours on my crock pot. But, that will vary from crock pot to crock pot. Yum, I'm sitting here eating a tiny bowl waiting for my husband to come home from work so that we can eat it together.
