- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cans (16 ounces each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
- 2 cups frozen corn
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
- 1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
- Sour cream and minced fresh cilantro
- In a Dutch oven, cook turkey in oil over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Add the beans, broth, corn, salsa, chilies and chili powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve with sour cream and cilantro.
Freeze option: Before adding sour cream and cilantro, cool soup. Freeze soup in freezer containers up to 3 months. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary. Serve with sour cream and cilantro. Yield: 6 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
Reviews for Southwest Turkey Soup
"I love this soup. Also, agree with divadesigner. How can someone rate a recipe they haven't tried or one they've altered so much, it doesn't vaguely resemble the original. Beats me!"
"Wicked easy, Wicked delicious, I used cubed chicken instead of ground turkey. Pairs nice with a couple slices of a cheese quesadilla with clinatro on wheat tortillas."
"Love this soup, the only change I made was that I used black beans instead of kidney beans( personnal preference)"
"@tdpries1:All you've done is note how you'd change a southwestern flavored soup into basic, boring vegetable soup. Why write a review for a recipe you will not eat? Also, green chiles are available in a mild version with no heat what so ever and chili powder adds smokiness, not heat. It is very irritating to read reviews for a recipe from someone who has not or will not make said recipe."
"It sounds good, basically, but I do not like spicy foods, so would eliminate the chilies and the chili powder. I would add a lot more veggies: carrots and green beans at least. Haven't actually tried it, not into salsa, but would add home-frozen tomatoes instead. Overall, sounds good, especially with a hot loaf of home-made french or italian bread."
"My husband loves it! Said to make it again. I used reduced sodium kidney beans & used homemade chicken broth to reduce the sodium."
"whole family loves!"
"Have made this twice now since my hubbie loved it so much. Very easy to make and very flavorful!"
