This recipe is brought to us by our friend, Alyssa, from The Recipe Critic. Take it away, Alyssa!

Fall is officially here and winter is quickly approaching. I am not looking forward to the winter months and snow, but I am looking forward to one thing. Soup season. I could eat soup all year long, but there is nothing better than a warm bowl of comforting soup in the colder months. I love a good hearty soup and this creamy soup will become a new family favorite.

This soup is perfect for using up that leftover turkey from the holidays. And it has a secret ingredient that makes this soup rich, and full of delicious turkey flavor. McCormick’s Simply Better Turkey Gravy. I have loved using these ready to serve gravy mixes in my recipes lately. They add quality flavor and the spices are already packed inside. It is so easy to just pour the gravy into the soup. The result was a thick and creamy soup that my family couldn’t get enough of.
