Busy Night Turkey Taco Soup with Avocado Cream


My family loves Tex-Mex dishes and I love quick and convenient but healthy and interesting dishes, and this soup fits the bill in every way. No one can believe that this hasn't simmered for a long time, as the flavors blend beautifully. If I don't have guacamole on hand, I blend green chilies with the sour cream -- it's very adaptable. Serve with tortilla chips!
