Turkey Chili Taco Soup Recipe
A budget-friendly meal option, this turkey chili taco soup is a great recipe that uses pantry staples and mixes up your normal chili or taco routine.
This turkey chili taco soup recipe is a delicious alternative for Taco Tuesday using ground turkey. It combines both chili fixings like kidney beans with canned tomatoes with some taco night components like refried beans and taco seasoning.
At a total cost of $11.08, if you have to buy everything new, this soup makes 6 servings, so your total cost per serving is just $1.85. If you make your own taco seasoning rather than use a pre-made mix, you can save even more.
My kids absolutely love chili and they love tacos, but they were a little weary of the whole chili taco soup concept because they saw all this liquid in the pot. But as soon as I plated each soup bowl with the toppings, they ate it up and didn’t say a word, other than asking for seconds!
How to Make Turkey Chili Taco Soup
Combine browned ground turkey with spices, canned beans, canned tomatoes and sauce, and chicken broth. Spice it up just a touch with the addition of chopped jalapeno pepper. I like a little heat in all my Mexican dishes.
Homemade Taco Seasoning
If you have a fully stocked spice cabinet, you can make your own taco seasoning for cheaper than buying the pre-made seasoning mix at the store. This recipe below makes 1/4 cup of seasoning mix. You’ll only need to use 2 tablespoons in the recipe.
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
Top with sour cream and your favorite shredded cheese and cilantro or diced scallions to have a complete meal. Super budget-friendly and because it’s loaded with veggies and healthy ground turkey, you can feel good about eating this meal for dinner and having leftovers for lunch!
We partnered with Kuner’s Foods to bring you this recipe and video. I love the Kuner’s Petite Diced Tomatoes in my soups, stews, and chiles as do my children because you get more bits and pieces of tomatoes in each bite, rather than just huge chunks of tomatoes.
The Kuner’s Southwest refried beans are great in this recipe – and they actually come in a variety of flavors including – refried black beans with lime juice, traditional refried pinto beans, refried black beans with roasted chiles, and refried pinto beans with roasted chiles. If you choose a refried bean option with the chiles, it adds another depth of flavor to the soup, so you may skip the jalapeno, or you can leave it if you like a little extra heat as I do.
Right now is a great time to pick up some Kuner’s canned beans at Safeway. They are on sale for $.79 through September 15th and there are printable coupons available over on Kuner’s website.
