How to Make Southern Harvest Soup


  • 1Prep and chop veggies so they are ready for the pan. Heat up a 4 qt plus soup pot on medium.
  • 2Add a few rounds of olive oil to the pan.
  • 3Then add the onions, followed by the garlic. Immediately season with thyme, sea salt, pepper, natures seasoning, and smoked paprika.
  • 4Give the mix a couple or stirs, then add the carrots, and celery and mix in.
  • 5Simmer for aprox 5 minutes, then add the zucchini and summer squash and season again with a quick shake of salt.
  • 6Bring the flame back to medium and add the ground turkey.Season again with salt, pepper, natures seasoning, smoked paprika and 1/2 the cumin, a dash or cyan pepper and a dash of chili powder. Crumble meat into small pieces.
  • 7Once the meat is just cooked, add a couple of tbsp of butter to the pan and let melt.
  • 8Once butter is melted into the meat mixture, add a couple of tbsp of four. Immediately work flour it to give everything a nice coat.
  • 9Let cook for aprox 5 minutes, then make sure the flame is at a high medium and add 1/2-1 can of the red gold diced tomatoes and rinsed black beans. (When I mention things brand specific, it's because I find it to be the best tasting for the dish.)
  • 10Stir the tomatoes into the mixture and let set for about 30 seconds, then add 1 container of chicken stock.
  • 11Stir and bring to a boil on high. Once boiling or very near to it, reduce heat to medium and do a taste test. Remember that the spices will get stronger with time, so if you decide to add more, be liberal. I usually hit is with one more round of all the spices used already.
  • 12Add more chicken stock if necessary and simmer 15-20 minutes. Add corn 5 minutes before serving.
  • 13Dress it up: Fill bowl with soup, Sprinkle some Mexican blend cheese on top, then lay 2 tortilla chips on top of the cheese. Add a small dollop of sour cream and some green onions and voila!
