Turkey Tortilla Soup

You NEED this recipe after consuming your Thanksgiving turkey. I have used it for over 15 years and never fail to appreciate it and neither will you.....It only asks for 2 cups of your left over chopped turkey..that is NOTHING compared to the big bird you decided to cook.

This recipe is soooooooo old I don 't remember where I got it. You will never cook a bird again without reserving turkey for this soup......GUARANTEED!

1 tsp. Olive oil
1 cup onions, chopped
1 package taco seasoning
6 cups of chicken broth or bouillon
2 cups of diced cooked turkey

1 tub of frozen green chili....for my Alaska friends....4 cans, diced
1 can (16 oz) tomatoes
1 10 oz. pkg.frozen corn
1/3 cup cilantro
1/2 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, grated

Tortilla chips (like Tostitos) to top

In a 5 qt. saucepan, over medium heat, saute onion in oil 3-4 min. or until soft. Stir in chile, cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, stir in turkey and broth. Add corn and reduce heat to simmer about 5 minutes. Add cilantro. To serve, spoon 1 1/3 cups soup to a bowl, top with tortilla chips and grated cheese.
