In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add turkey, coriander and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and breaking up meat with wooden spoon, until turkey is no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; set aside.

In saucepan, add potatoes, celery, leek, onion, garlic and jalapeño; cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Stir in broth, lemon juice, white beans and reserved turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in cilantro. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.)

When ready to serve, top hot soup with dollop of sour cream and Cheddar Croutons.

Bake, stirring halfway through cooking time, until croutons are golden and crisp, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.) Makes 4 servings.
