Start off by placing the smoked turkey into a large pot.
Pour the broth or water into the pot, then turn the heat to high.
Let the turkey cook until it’s nice and tender, then remove it from the pot. Be sure to NOT drain the liquid from the pot. We will use it!
Shred or dice up the turkey meat. Make sure to remove all the bones, and skin.
Now toss the green beans, smoked turkey, onions, and garlic into the pot with the liquid.
Sprinkle in the seasonings, and stir the ingredients.
Cook for about 10 minutes, then add in the potatoes.
