  1. Combine chicken broth, celery, onion, garlic, Mexican oregano, and ground chipotle in a large pot; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat; simmer until vegetables are softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir butternut squash and turkey into the broth mixture; simmer until turkey is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • European oregano can be substituted for Mexican oregano if desired. Parsley can be used instead of cilantro.
  • Use a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler to cut the butternut squash into noodle shapes.
  • This can easily be converted to a vegetarian recipe by using vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth and eliminating the turkey. You can also substitute chicken for the turkey.

I just got a new spiralizer so was looking for new recipes. Since I had left over turkey this was the perfect recipe. And my family all loved it.
