  • Prep

  • Ready In

  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.

This light-tasting soup is a great use for leftover poultry, and it comes together quickly from common pantry items. I did not have any turkey, so I used chicken. That was my only change to th...

The chipotle pepper gives it a nice kick. Nice use of the butternut squash.

Loved this recipe! I used ground turkey instead of diced turkey and browned it while broth was boiling. Will make this one again.
