turkey tortilla soup


Prep Time
15 mins

Cook Time
10 mins

  1. 4 cups homemade turkey broth
  2. 2 large garlic cloves
  3. 1 to 2 tablespoons chipotle chiles in
    adobo sauce or homemade chili puree
  4. 2 small carrots, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  5. 1-1/2 cups cooked, shredded turkey meat
  6. 1 lime, juiced
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. Garnish with tortilla. Add avocado or fresh cilantro
    along with lime wedges for extra flavor.


  1. In a medium pot, heat the broth until simmering. While it is warming, blend the garlic with 1 to 2 tablespoons chipotle chiles and their sauce in a food processor until a paste is formed. Season to taste on spiciness, and check heat level with 1/2 tablespoon before adding it all.
  2. Whisk this paste into the broth, add the carrots and simmer until carrots are soft, but still have a little bit of crunch, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the turkey along with the lime juice and simmer until the meat is heated thoroughly.
  3. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. Add tortilla strips on top. Serve immediately with any garnishes you like.
