Turkey Chorizo Soup
with kale, potatoes, and corn
We love any opportunity to cook a soup - they're filling, full of comfort, and fairly simple to make. This one was featured the week of 1/4/16 and has been one of our recent faves, so we're bringing it back.
Smarts: If you're limited in spices and want a shortcut, you can also purchase chorizo from your meat counter.
- Ground turkey, lean (sub other ground meat) - 1 lb
- Chili powder - 2 Tbsp
- Paprika - 1 Tbsp
- Cumin - 2 tsp
- Garlic powder - 2 tsp
- Coriander - 2 tsp
- Oregano, dried - 1 tsp
- Salt - 1 tsp
- Adobo sauce (opt - usually found with canned chipotles - sub smoked paprika) - 1 Tbsp
- Garlic - 4 cloves
- Onions - 1, chopped
- Kale (1 bunch = ~6 leaves) - 1 bunch, leaves torn, stems chopped
- Potatoes, any type - 1 lb, chopped
- Oil, cooking - 2 tsp
- Tomato paste - 4 Tbsp
- Chicken stock - 4 cups
- Limes - 1/2, sliced into wedges
- Corn kernels, frozen or canned - 1 cup
- Sour cream - 6 Tbsp
- 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.
- 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)
- Add potatoes and chicken stock. Cover and bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
- While soup cooks, slice lime into wedges.
- 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.
- Ladle into bowls and serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
Left out the corn but served with corn chips like chili, so good!0 Helpful
Have made one time with turkey and spices, one time with real chorizo. Delicious both ways!1 Helpful
Omitted the corn and sour cream. Pretty good.0 Helpful
A very good satisfying soup.0 Helpful
Didn't have kale so I used spinach. A little too spicy for the kids, but hubby and I loved it!0 Helpful
Packed a great flavor punch - yummy! Turkey chorizo felt very lean and a little tough. I think I overworked it mixing in the spices.0 Helpful
