Creamy Turkey Taco Soup

For most of us that have turkey left over I thought todays recipe could come in handy, you could even replace the turkey with tofurky  giving this a meatless Monday meal.

I think everyone has had taco soup but I do some of the things different.

The seasonings will differ depending on taste.

 

Creamy Turkey Taco Soup:

2 cups of shredded turkey of diced tofurky

2 cups of veggie broth but if using turkey you can use chicken broth

1 cup of milk ( I use almond or soy I just make sure they are sugar-free )

1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil

2/3 cup of Salsa any kind that you like will do

A can of black beans

1 small Onion diced

4 cloves of Garlic diced

About 1/2 cups of flour

About 1/2 cups of grated cheese

The following seasoning per your taste: Salt, black pepper, chili powder, cumin

In a large pot add olive oil, onion, garlic and sauté then make a rue by adding your flour and cooking a minute longer. Add salsa, turkey ( if using tofurky wait to add until the last 10 minutes) black beans. Next the veggie or chicken broth, milk, seasonings and stir together. Let simmer on low about 30 minutes or 20 if making this with a tofurky. Add cheese last stir until melted then serve.

Toppings: Crunched up corn chips, diced avocado, spoon of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt and just a little more grated cheese.
