Healthy Recipe: Green Chile Taco Soup

I made this recipe for the first time this week, and we both loved it! Great for a nice chilly fall night!


Green Chile Taco Soup


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 can diced green chiles, drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 carton low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can green chile enchilada sauce
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning mix


Fry the ground turkey with minced garlic and pepper in a skillet until fully cooked. Drain grease and set aside.

Combine all ingredients, including the cooked turkey, in a stock pot. Simmer on low for 1 hour.
Serve with tortilla chips or place a handful of tortilla strips right on top of the soup!

(Note: you can amp up the heat of this recipe by using Hot taco seasoning or Hot enchilada sauce, or dial it down by using Mild versions.)
