Recipe adapted from Ann's Entitled Life.
It gets cold in Florida and nothing taste as good as a hot bowl of soup.
Lots of leftover turkey, plenty to make the broth and meat to add to the soup.
The soup I brought to Leta's didn't have any hot sauce. She had a very bad cold and soup always hits the spot when you aren't feeling well.
12 Green Onions, sliced lengthwise and then sliced thin
6 Celery Stalks, sliced lengthwise and then sliced thin
3/4 cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup Flour
3 cups Milk
3 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
4 cups Chicken or Turkey, cooked and diced
3/4 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
16 oz Cream Cheese, cubed
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter and then saute onions and celery until soft.
Slowly stir in flour until smooth.
Add the milk a little at a time and then the broth, stirring constantly until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients, and simmer stirring regularly until cream cheese is melted.
Season to taste. Add more Cayenne Pepper if you want more heat.
Simmer until thoroughly heated through, and hot.
