Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 4 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
  • 7 oz. can diced green chiles, undrained
  • 32 oz. chicken broth
  • 2 c. leftover turkey, chopped
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 1/41/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Melt butter over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven or stock pot.
  2. Add onions, celery and jalapeño. Cook 3-5 minutes or until softened.
  3. Add garlic, cumin and ground white pepper and cook 2 more minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the diced green chiles and chicken broth.
  5. Turn to high heat and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat, add the chopped turkey and simmer uncovered 15 minutes.
  7. Stir in the cream cheese until melted.
  8. Stir in the heavy cream.
  9. Add 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum to 2 tbsp. water and whisk or use a milk frother to ensure there are no clumps.
  10. Add to the chili and mix well. Remove from heat.
  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 if you want a thicker soup, keeping the mind the xanthan gum can take several minutes to thicken.

Notes

Start off small with the xanthan gum. A little goes a long way. Make sure the first 1/4 tsp. has completely thickened the soup before you add more, or you could end up with the consistency of canned gelatinous cream of chicken soup!
