Quick Turkey Tortilla Soup
I'm always thankful when I can pull such a delicious soup together in under 30 minutes. -Amy McFadden, Chelsea, Alabama
Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
7-1/4 cups hot water
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Taste of Home - Great Flavors Turkey Stock Concentrate
3 cups shredded cooked turkey or rotisserie chicken
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 cup medium salsa
5 corn tortillas (6 inches), cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Additional salsa, optional
In a Dutch oven, combine the first five ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, spread tortilla strips in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° 4-6 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
Stir cilantro into soup. Top servings with tortilla strips. If desired, serve with additional salsa.
Freeze Option: Reserving tortillas for later, freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary. Meanwhile, bake tortillas as directed and sprinkle over each serving. Serve with additional salsa if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
