Turkey Taco Soup

This is really good.. better than it sounds.

Turkey Taco Soup

1 package Ground Turkey (the ones I can get come in 20oz packages)
1 onion, chopped (more or less to taste)
3 10oz cans Diced tomatoes w/ green chilies
2 15oz cans Pinto Beans, Drained
1 15oz can black beans, drained
1 16oz package frozen whole kernel corn
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
1 beef bouillon cube (optional)
1 cup beef broth or water (optional)
Non stick spray

Spray large frying pan (I used a wok style pan) with non stick spray. Add Turkey and Onion and bouillon cube and cook until Turkey is fully cooked and onions are clear or nearly so.. about 5 minutes.

Drain meat if necessary. Return to a large soup pot. Add the remainder of the ingredients. Simmer at least 20 minutes.. longer if you can stand it. The longer it cooks, the better it is.

This comes out very thick.. more stewish than soupish.

The original recipe called for ground beef and cream style corn and was rated at 281 calories/ 1.5 cups of soup. Ground turkey and whole kernel corn make it a little less calorie dense, but not a whole lot.

I like to add a little fat free sour cream.
