    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.  -  10 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  06 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!!!
