That should be excellent compost. If it smells sour or otherwise bad, it should be composted in a pile until it smells good again.

Don't till it in. Just use it on top of the soil. Fluffy tilled soil will become dead soil before it gets healthy again. Tilling disturbs all the soil's microbes and those are what gives the soil health.
