Turkey Tortilla Soup

This recipe is a perfect way to use your turkey leftovers and a exciting alternative to boring, old chicken noodle soup.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 cups water
6 chicken flavored bouillon cubes
1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes with green chilies (Ro*Tel)
2 cups cooked turkey breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/3 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
Tortilla chips

      Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Let it set 5-10 minutes before serving. Garnish with Mexican crema or sour cream, sprinkle with Cotija cheese and slices of avocado.
