Sunday Slow Soupers:Mexican Turkey Soup

6561073816_SundaySlowSoup.jpg

Where was this when I used to cook a Thanksgiving turkey? It is a wonderful, flavorful way to use leftover turkey. Poor Brad had to forego the cilantro and guacamole, because I can stand either one! Avocados are the only fattening food besides chocolate that I don't eat. Here is Jerry's great recipe for "Mexican Turkey Soup":

Mexican Turkey Soup

Ingredients
(Serves 4)

1-1/2 cups fresh corn niblets (frozen will work but thaw first)
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped green onions, white and light-green parts only; reserve dark-green ends to garnish
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp finely chopped, canned chipotle peppers
4 cups chicken stock (or if you have time, try making your own turkey stock)
3/4 cups shredded, cooked turkey
1 ripe avocado
2 limes
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp finely chopped, fresh cilantro

Instructions
In a large pot, dry-roast corn over high heat until lightly charred. Set aside in a small bowl. Repeat process with tomatoes.
Using same pot, saute onion, garlic and chipotle peppers in vegetable oil over medium heat. Add turkey and stock and bring almost to a boil then reduce heat to simmer.
Roughly chop tomatoes and add (with juices) to pot along with corn. Season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, mash avocado with a fork. Mix in juice from 1/2 of one lime and mayonnaise. Stir in chopped cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
Serve soup topped with avocado cream, finely chopped dark-green onions and a wedge of lime.
