Slow Cooker Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

Here’s a great recipe to use up some of the turkey leftovers from Christmas day. It takes just a few minutes to throw together. Simply put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, get outside and enjoy the holiday, and then come home to a fully cooked, healthy dinner. Not only is that great, but your home will smell amazing! Serve with a green salad and you’re good to go!
