This is a favorite at our house - perfect for a chilly afternoon and a great way to use the leftovers - and it is easily expandable in case you need a big pot of something to serve a crowd during a football game. —aargersi
Heat the oven to 350. Cut the tortillas in half, then into strips. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray, then spread the tortilla strips out evenly. Spray them with non-stick spray then sprinkle with cumin. Bake them until crunchy, tossing and stirring 2-3 times while they bake (app 20-25 minutes)
chop the onions, celery, carrot, tomatillo and garlic. In a large saucepan, saute the onion on med-high heat until it begins to sweat. Add the cumin, celery, carrot and garlic. Add the turkey and saute another minute or so. Add the broth, corn, tomato and tomatillo. Bring to a simmer. Remove the stem and seeds from the ancho and tear it into pieces and add them to the soup. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed. Squeeze in the juice of the lime and stir in the chopped cilantro.
To serve, spoon the hot soup into a bowl. Sprinkle with jack cheese, and add the tortilla strips, sliced avocado and cilantro leaves, garnish with lime to serve.
