Gather the ingredients to make a recipe for stew:

3 carrots, sliced

2 peppers, chopped

1 large onion, chopped

3 medium potatoes, chopped

3 stalks celery, sliced

3 cups cooked turkey or chicken, chopped

1 cup turkey broth

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 can corn

1 can butter beans

Let’s Cook

Slice or chop the carrots, peppers, onion, potatoes, and celery. Place the vegetables in a large five-quart Dutch oven, and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and then lower the temperature to just a simmer. 

Chop up the leftover turkey, and add it to the vegetables in the pot. Add turkey broth. If there is no leftover turkey broth, use chicken broth or dissolved bouillon cubes in water (follow the directions on package). Make sure there is enough liquid to cover the ingredients in the pot; if necessary, add some water. 

Add the diced tomatoes, including the liquid in the can. If you only have canned whole tomatoes, then place them in a bowl, and cut them up before adding.

Add a can of corn, including any liquid.

Add a can of butter beans, including any liquid.

When making this recipe for stew, add salt, pepper, and sugar to your taste. Simmer about 45 minutes.

When done, serve it from a beautiful soup tureen, to add an extra touch. To complete the meal, make a fresh garden salad, or slaw, some homemade bread, a delicious dessert, and your family won’t recognize that leftover turkey.
