With all the cold weather and snow, it seems like every weekend all we think about is making a soup. One that we can enjoy that night for dinner and then hopefully have for lunch a few days the next week. I love taking a nice warm soup for lunch! It is a great way to warm up since I'm always freezing at my desk. We have had a ton of taco soups, but never made one on our own. After looking up recipes and seeing they all called for taco seasoning mix and ranch seasoning mix, I knew we were on our own! Seasoning mixes have way too much sodium!
1 lb ground turkey
1 container of salsa
1 box of broth
2 cans black beans (or dried beans that have been cooked already)
1 green pepper
1/2 cup frozen corn
2 TBS chili sauce
1 TBS Onion Powder or more after tasting soup
1 TBS Cumin or more after tasting soup
1 TBS Chili Powder or more after tasting soup
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper or more after tasting soup
Brown the turkey with the onion, garlic, and spices.
In a pot combine the broth, salsa, green pepper, corn, black beans, chili sauce, and browned meat.
Allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes. Taste and add more spices by taste. I really need to improve my photography and take photos in bowls other than my red dishes!
