Number of Servings: 1


    2Tblsp of Light Olive Oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped green pepper
    2 tblsp of minced garlic
    1 lb lean ground turkey
    1 lb sweet Italian sausage
    2 16oz cans of diced stewed tomatoes
    6 cups of hot water
    2 10oz package of frozen mixed vegetables
    1 Tbsp of oregano
    2 Tbsp of basil, 4 Tbsp is fresh
    2 Tbsp of Chili powder (smokey flavor works best)
    1 tsp of cayenne pepper or a couple of dashes of Tabascos sauce
    1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp of ground cumin
    salt and pepper to taste


Add olive oil to at stock pan and add medium heat. Add chopped onion and peppers and saute until tender, about 7 minutes, add minced garlic just before onions and peppers are tender. Brown ground turkey and sausage, sometimes I will use a hot Italian sausage to give it a bit more kick. If you used lean meat there should not be any liquid to drain. Once the meat is browned add your seasonings: salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, ground cumin, chili powder, basil, and oregano. Stir in you stewed tomatoes, water and frozen vegetables, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. A nice option to this soup, is to top it off with with a lite or fat free sour cream, just a dollop.
