This is a FANTASTIC way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or any holiday.
My husband even had seconds, and he NEVER EVER has seconds on soup!!
2 TBS olive oil
1 cup white onion, finely diced
6 cups turkey or chicken stock
2-3 cups leftover turkey, diced up
2 cups frozen corn, or 1 15-oz can, drained
1 15-oz can black beans, I didn't drain mine
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes (Mexican style optional)
2 4-oz cans diced green chilies
1 15-oz can of red OR green enchilada sauce OR one envelope of enchilada sauce seasoning
2 cups spinach, sliced into ribbons
salt, pepper to taste
Couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce (optional)
1 TBS of sugar
fried tortilla strips or tortilla chips
In a large stock pot on med-high heat saute onions in the olive oil.
Add stock, turkey, corn, beans, tomatoes, chilies, enchilada sauce or seasoning, Tabasco (if desired), and salt and pepper.
