Turkey Taco Soup

Gina Roberts


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.
  4. 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.
