Spicy Turkey Soup

This was a great way to use up leftover turkey. This simple soup was really yummy! This recipe was adapted from Whole Foods.

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 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) 
1/2 cup chopped cilantro 
1 avocado, diced 
1 lime

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.  Turn off heat, add cilantro. Serve topped with diced avocado and squeeze of fresh lime juice.

I served this with white corn chips, roasted sweet potatoes, and a romaine salad with Mexican Lime Dressing.
