Turkey Taco Soup

Come join Soup-a-Palooza at TidyMom and Dine and Dish sponsored by Bush’s Beans, Hip Hostess, Pillsbury and Westminster Crackers

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 onion
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!
