Turkey Caldo Tlalpeno

Photography: Karry Hosford
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 cups soup and 1 lime wedge)
Named after a community on the outskirts of Mexico City--Tlalpan--this is a simple brothy soup studded with bits of turkey and chickpeas. If you've already eaten all the leftover turkey, chop some rotisserie chicken. Adjust the spice level to your taste by using more or less chipotle. We liked it spicy.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 2/3 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
