Kari’s Tortilla Soup (Chicken or Turkey)
This is delicious with smoked chicken or turkey as well as unsmoked. A great way to use up leftovers.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 poblano peppers, seeded and chopped (roast/blacken and peel for better flavor)
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon tomato paste
4 cups chicken stock (or stock made from the carcass)
2 cups canned tomatoes
1 to 2 pounds cooked chicken or turkey meat (or boneless, skinless chicken breasts*)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Additional salt to taste
Sugar or honey if needed to balance acidity

Garnishes
Fried tortilla strips or crunched up tortilla chips, chopped avocado, chopped tomato, chopped scallion, sour cream, additional fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges

Directions
In a large heavy pot, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, peppers, salt, cumin, and coriander, and sautť for 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the stock and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the chicken or turkey and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the cilantro and lime juice. Ladle into bowls and add your favorite garnishes.

*If using whole raw chicken breasts, add the whole chicken breasts at the same time you add the stock. After simmering for 20 minutes, remove the breasts and shred.

Kari,
I made this with a smoked turkey breast last night. Very good. If a can of hominy was added, i would swear it was the Mexican classic Pozole. Very tasty. Thanks for posting.
