This delicious and easy Tortilla Soup is a great way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey or chicken.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced thin (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 quart chicken or turkey stock, 4 cups
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey meat, about 13 ounces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • chopped fresh cilantro, for topping
  • Additional toppings: sliced avocado, Greek yogurt, sour cream, shredded cheddar or jack cheese
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a 3-quart or larger pot, heat the oil over medium. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, and oregano and cook, stirring often until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the tomatoes and the stock, raise the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • While the soup is simmering, brush each tortilla with the oil, then stack on a cutting board. Cut the tortilla stack in half, then into 1/2-inch wide strips.

  • Arrange the strips on a sheet pan in a single layer (you may need to use more than one pan, or bake in rounds.) Season the strips with a few pinches of salt and bake until golden and crispy, about 10 minutes.

  • Add the turkey meat to the soup pot and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for another 5 minutes to heat the turkey meat.

  • To serve, top the soup with a handful of tortilla strips and cilantro, plus optional avocado, sour cream and cheese.
