A healthy taco soup that's beyond delicious and so easy to make!

  • 1/2 yellow onion or one small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey or preferred ground meat
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed (kidney beans would work too)
  • 1 (11-15 oz) can (fiesta or regular style corn), drained and rinsed
  • 1 (4.5 oz) can green chilis (optional)
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans fire roasted (or regular) crushed tomato
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth (veggie or beef broth work fine too)
  • 1 packet store bought taco seasoning (or try my favorite homemade taco seasoning)
Topping options
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream or yogurt
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Corn chips
  • diced avocado

  1. Heat about 1 tsp oil (or use cooking spray) in a pot over medium high heat. Add onion and cook for about 3 mins and then add garlic and cook for another 1-2 mins.
  2. Add ground turkey and cook, breaking it up as you go, until it is browned.
  3. Add remaining soup ingredients and turn heat down to a simmer.
  4. Simmer for 10-30 minutes to bring the flavors together. Adjust thickness with water if desired.
  5. Serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!
