leftover turkey Pozole Verde de Pavo

First off do not let the name Pozole scare you away from this recipe, it is simple and fun to make! I took my leftover turkey carcass and filled the crock pot up about halfway with water and let it run on high for about 5 hours building a fantastic broth for my turkey Pozole. While I was waiting for the turkey carcass to do it magic I made salsa verde. I started with 10-12 tomatillos and one jalapeno (not de-seeded), I sliced the tomatillos and jalapeno up and then sauteed it until the tomatillos and jalapeño were soft. Once it was soft, I removed it from the pan and added it to my blender with 1/2 of a white onion, a handful of cilantro, 1 TBS garlic, and salt to taste. I pulsed it a couple of times and then I placed it in the fridge to rest. After 5 hours I strained the broth removing the bones and fat, and then I poured it in a large saucepan. After the broth was added to a large saucepan, I then added 2 cups of the salsa verde and a ton of leftover turkey (appx. 2000 lbs). Then it to simmer for 20 minutes. For fun, I added a slice of red onion and lime! Yum!
