Southwest Turkey Soup Recipe

Ground turkey and a handful of other ingredients are all that’s required for this satisfying soup that’s nicely spiced with salsa, green chilies and chili powder. “It’s perfect on busy weeknights in the winter.” —Genise Krause, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
