Chipotle Turkey and Corn Soup

Stacking the turkey cutlets and then thinly slicing them will save you some time during preparation. You can freeze leftover chipotle chiles in the adobo sauce (package chiles individually with a little sauce in small plastic freezer bags) and use in salsas, with pork, or for Mexican-inspired scrambled eggs.
