Turkey Vatapa Soup

Posted in : Recipe, Soup, Waste Not Want Not on by : Nicole

I discovered this recipe years ago when i had a whole left over turkey breast from honey baked ham store, and some beer that we were not going to drink. This recipe filled the void perfectly!

I’ve updated and changed it over the years, but think it’s a great way to use up left over turkey and beer!

Different beers, adding diced chilies, etc.

I find getting the jalapenos and onions cooked fully help the soup to be best.
