  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, onions, celery and pasilla pepper, sautéing until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add in the turkey, garlic, salt and pepper, breaking up the turkey as it browns, until the turkey is fully cooked, about 7 minutes. Add the spinach, and stir until wilted.
  3. Pour in the chicken stock, cauliflower, potato, and beans with their juices, and bring the mixture up to a boil.
  4. Once boiling , add the cream cheese and stir until it is melted into the soup. I used a whisk to help the process.
