Turkey Tortilla Soup

Got leftover turkey (or even chicken)? Here’s a recipe to use it all up! What I like about this is that all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in a pot and turn on the heat. Then, you can just set up little stations of cheese, tortilla crumbs, and avocados so everyone can pick and choose for themselves. A nice simple dinner for a week night 🙂

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 cups cooked organic turkey (or chicken), shredded

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 tsp chili powder

3 cups chicken broth

1 28oz can tomatoes with juice

salt and pepper to taste


grated cheese

tortilla chip crumbs

avocado, cut into slices


Heat oil in pot. Sauté onion and garlic cloves for 7 minutes. Add in turkey, black beans, corn, cumin, chili powder, chicken broth, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 25 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into individual bowls and top with cheese, crumbs, and slices of avocado.

    Sounds delicious. I recommend adding a splash of lime. So delicious.
