"Leftover Turkey"
Throw together this easy soup to serve guests who remain after the Thanksgiving holiday!
This soup provides the perfect balance between spicy, savory and herbal flavor.


1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with their liquid
4 cups low-sodium, gluten-free chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle or cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
3 cups shredded cooked turkey meat (white and dark)
1 small bag white corn chips
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
2 avocados, sliced
2 limes, cut into wedges


Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and onions. Cook, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes, until onions are translucent. Stir in tomatoes, broth, oregano, ground chipotle pepper, cumin, black pepper, bay leaf and turkey. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer. Simmer 15 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

To serve, break corn chips (about 5 or 6 per serving) into bite-size pieces and place in bowls. Ladle soup over chips. Sprinkle with cilantro and cheese. Garnish with avocado slices and lime wedges.

Do you have any creative ideas on what to do with leftover Thanksgiving turkey?
