Tex-Mex Inspired Turkey Soup

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

This soup is a great way to cure a craving for the unhealthy offerings at tex-mex restaurants -- and it's a lot better than yet another re-hashed taco salad. Kids LOVE this soup, and it's easy to adjust the seasonings for their palates.

Serve it up with a side salad and fresh-baked corn bread for a hearty, spicy, cold-weather meal!

Ingredients

    ~20 oz 93% lean ground turkey
    ~1 chopped onion
    ~ 1 bell pepper, chopped
    ~2 carrots, sliced
    ~6 c. beef broth (low sodium is better)
    ~1 Tbsp chili powder
    ~1 tsp cumin
    ~1/2 tsp oregano
    ~1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    ~1 can diced tomatoes
    ~8 oz whole wheat elbow macaroni
    ~Salt to taste, Tabasco to taste

Directions

Brown the turkey in a soup pot. Drain any extra fat.

Add the onions, pepper and carrots and saute until transparent.

Add the herbs, tomatoes and worcestershire sauce, then the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10-15 min.

Raise the heat to a boil again, add the macaroni, and cook until the pasta is tender.

Add salt if desired -- I think the beef broth gives enough salt though! If you're into spicy, spike the soup with a teaspoon of Tabasco sauce, or let folks garnish their own.

Makes 8 servings.
