Turkey Taco Stoup

This "stoup"(stew-soup) is thick and hearty and oh so delicious. I came up with the recipe during one of our budget-is-tight-so-what's-in-the-fridge nights. It is a combination of several recipe favorites (taco soup, mexican stew, and my mom's famous chili) using what I had on hand.

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 T taco seasoning
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 large yellow squash, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 can (14oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • optional: 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups water or broth

 In a large soup pot, brown ground turkey over medium heat. After turkey is browned, add taco seasoning and onion and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes. Next add squash and carrots, stir well and let cook for another 2-3 minutes to give flavor; add remaining ingredients. Simmer for at least 20 minutes, longer is better if you have the time though. Serve as is for 4 servings, or over rice or quinoa for 6+ servings.
