Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then onions, garlic, chopped kale stems, and tomato paste to heated oil. Saute until tender, ~3 minutes.
  2. Fold in seasoned ground turkey and break up with a wooden spoon. Brown meat for 4 to 6 minutes. (If you couldn’t find lean ground turkey and a lot of fat has cooked out, drain out as much fat as possible before starting next step)
  3. Add potatoes and chicken stock. Cover and bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
  4. While soup cooks, slice lime into wedges.
  5. Once potatoes are tender, fold in kale leaves and corn. Turn off heat and season to taste with salt, pepper, other spices, or even hot sauce.
  6. Ladle into bowls and serve with sour cream and lime wedges.

Taste better a few days out, similar to another soup we had recently but still very tasty

Would have preferred this with Adobo, but am on the Whole30 and couldn't find a compliant brand. Subbed a spicy chipotle salsa.

So yummy! I halved the spices because I used half chorizo, and half ground turkey. Did everything else per the recipe. Prepped all of it ahead of time, which made a quick easy meal and nearly no mess! With a ton of sour cream, my toddler even ate it!

So delicious. The adobo sauce gave it an amazing flavour! Must remember to chop the kale leaves into smaller pieces next time.
