This is a great soup, but I did make some minor changes. I had 2 frozen turkey legs that I partially cooked on the stove with the 4 cups of water and some chicken bouillon. While that was cooking, I chopped the carrots, celery, and onion and put them in a crockpot. I added the turkey legs (whole) and the broth and let that cook on high for a few hours. I then cut the meat off the bone and added it back to the crockpot along with frozen corn and a bag of frozen broccoli and cauliflower and some rice. Just before serving, I added the can of cream of chicken soup, but no cheese. My kids loved it and it is definitely a comfort food type of soup that I will make again.

Perhaps if I had followed the directions more exactly I would have wound up with the "super soup" that everyone else is raving about. Unfortunately, I wanted to make a big pot and used over 2 qts of water and my huge leftover turkey. Added 3 cans chicken broth to get some flavor. Then my mistake.. I hate celery, so I diced it in my food processor. That was alright, but I also diced my carrots and onions in there. End result (after 3 cans cream of chicken / 1 can cream of celery/ half pound of velveeta / half lb cheddar /some parmesan and romano and mounds of seasoning) was basically a slightly cheesy, creamy broth with mini chunks of potato and a few veggies. (Oh yeah, I ended up using 1 lb mixed frozen and 1 lb green beans.) I doubt I'll do this again, I prefer my usual, entirely homemade (i.e. no cans of soup and processed cheese!) turkey, lentil, and barley soup, but if I did, I promise to follow the recipe!! Thanks anyway. Cheers!

This is an exceptionally great soup. I generally don't approve of Velveeta, but in this case, I wouldn't try anything else It is one of my family's favorites, especially on a cold winter's night.

Ok Ok. This is an absolute awesome recipe!!! Here's what I did to make it even better!! First I poached my turkey. Used 3 turkey thighs, filled a big pot with water & a cup of chicken broth, waited for the water to boil,then put in my diced potatoes, cut up veggies & the 3 turkey thighs. Bring water down to a simmer, cover with lid and don't touch for 30 mins. I poured the water/chicken broth into a gravy strainer, and poured 4 cups of skimmed liquid into my croc pot. Put 1 can each Cream of Chicken & Cheddar soup {substitute for cubed cheese} & mixed it with a wire whip. Cut my turkey to mouth size bites & put in the croc. Added a half bag of Green Giant frozen mixed veggies, set on low for 4 hours. Didn't add the onions for no particular reason, will add next time. By far the most tender turkey I have ever had in soup. Incredible. Snowin' like mad here {Massachusetts} & sittin' back with a hot & hearty soup!!! TY Melody!!!!!

I made this soup using left-over turkey and it went over well with my family. I love recipes that let me sneak in vegetables that they normally turn their noses up to, like broccoli. The only thing I added was a healthy dose of ground red pepper. Thank you for sharing. On edit: The leftover soup was so thick that I used it for pot pie. I mixed 1 stick butter, 1 cup milk, and 1 c self-rising flour and poured it over the soup. Baked 350 for 1 hour. It was wonderful.

omg, is this soup yummy! i made my broth & took meat from a turkey breast carcass. from there, i followed the recipe exactly as written except for using fresh (blanched) broccoli & adding 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper. borden's "american singles" processed cheese worked very well. you'll discover this soup is even more delicious when served the next day! thank you melody!!

I highly recommend this soup. It is a fast & easy meal all in itself. I will be making this a lot this winter.

This soup was excellent. I made it as recommended and it was delicious. Even my kids 4,3 and 3 liked it....veggies and ALL! They were a little suspicious of the broccoli at first, but once they tasted it in the cheesy soup they were sold. My son ate 2 bowls! My husband loved it as well. It is a great soup if you just want some comfort food on a cold day or to use up veggies you have sitting around. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
