The Saturday Simmer: Soup, stew and chili recipes for leftover turkey

Leftover turkey pinto bean chili, from Kalyn's Kitchen.

By the time next weekend rolls around, we'll be knee deep in leftover turkey (and leftover everything else) from the Thanksgiving feast. For some people, leftovers are the best part of the meal! In our house, we reheat the T-day meal on the next day, but by the day after that, someone will have stripped the turkey carcass, and left a container of turkey meat waiting for creative repurposing. What's more inspiring -- and easier -- than chopping or shredding the turkey and magically transforming it into soup, stew or chili, like this leftover turkey and pinto bean white chili with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen?

I'm always on the lookout for new ideas, and these recipes caught my eye:

Simple leftover turkey noodle soup, from Simple Nourished Living

White turkey chili, from Taste and Tell

Chipotle turkey pozole, from Simply Recipes

Leftover Thanksgiving turkey recipe for Moroccan stew, from Vintage Mixer

Leftover turkey coconut curry soup, from Endless Simmer

Leftover turkey and pinto bean white chili with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Leftover turkey stew, from Cooking by the seat of our pants

Butternut, black bean and turkey chili, from In Praise of Leftovers

Turkey soba noodle soup, from Jeanette's Healthy Living

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.

I'm always looking for new and different ways to use up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. The first thing I do after Thanksgiving dinner is throw the turkey carcass into a big pot and make turkey stock. Thanks so much for including my Turkey Soba Noodle Soup!

Jeanette, love your turkey soba soup! I'm always looking for new ways to serve leftovers, too.
