I was getting excited about soup season, because I know it is getting close, and I have several fresh ingredients from my garden, so I started putting this soup together. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and as much as I really am going to when it actually gets cold! The tomatoes, corn, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic and onions were from my garden.

How To Make turkey taco soup

  • 1
    Brown turkey with onion, jalapeno and garlic. Drain, if desired (I didn't because there was no fat on my turkey).
  • 2
    Add tomatoes with juice, all beans with juice, cumin, turmeric, chili powder, salt, black pepper, lime juice, cilantro, corn and butter.
  • 3
    Simmer for 15 - 30 minutes. The longer, the better. You could even put it all in your crockpot and let it simmer on low for a few hours.

    NOTE: I used low sodium chicken broth and low sodium beans, so that I could add my own sea salt amount to my taste. I just feel like it's healthier that way.
