MollieBean's Spicy Turkey Soup

This is good when you have leftover Turkey from a Turkey Dinner. I boil the Carcass from a Jenny-O Turkey Breast and discard the bones and skin. Save the meat for the soup, refrigerate. Then I put the broth in a container and refrigerate overnight. Skim off the fat the next day. This is my Turkey Broth. I had issues with SP ingredient list so I put in 99% chicken broth instead for my ingredient list. I think its the same amout of calories ???

Beans in Their Own Broth

Vegetable oil may be used in place of lard, but the beans will not have the same authentic flavor. 240 minutes cooking time is 4 hours.
