Well, I had all this turkey. Still have all this turkey..
And I made enchilada sauce for the Smoked Turkey Enchilada Pie. This just seemed to come next.
It is starting to get cold here, so this soup came just in time.
Still have some of that enchilada sauce left. I put it in the freezer.. (Then I made this)
- splash of oil
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1 carrot, cubed
- 1 garlic clove, diced
- 2 tablespoons enchilada sauce
- 1/4 cup rice (brown), uncooked
- 2 cups water or stock
- some black beans (like 1/4 to 1/2 can)
- 1/2 cup cubed smoked turkey
- 1 big dash of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 pinch of fresh diced cilantro
Heat up a splash of oil and sweat the onion and carrot for a few minutes. Then add the garlic for a minute or two. Add the rice and enchilada sauce and just brown for a minute and pour in the water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes or so. Add in the turkey, beans, and cheese. Cook for another five minutes. You want the rice to be cooked.
Top with the cilantro and more cheese..
It makes 2 large portions.
