Winter Soups: Chipotle Turkey and Sweet Potato

 

Y'all, I saved the best for last! Run to the store for these ingredients because you're about to discover your favorite new soup! Both Matthew and my mom were thoroughly impressed and I have to say, I helped myself to seconds! It has just the right amount of heat and the sweet potato is a wonderful substitute for beans. Really. It's the best soup I've ever made and was very simple to put together!

 The fire roasted tomatoes and chipotle powder are what sets this soup apart!

  • 2 tbsp EVOO or Cocnut Oil
  • 2lbs Ground Turkey
  • 2 cups Red Onion, diced
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 4 cans Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 tbs Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Ground Chipotle Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Prep veggies (potato, onion, garlic) then set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large pot on medium heat.
  3. Add ground turkey to pot when oil is hot and break up with spoon or spatula. Cook approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Add onion and garlic then cook another 10 minutes or until onions are translucent and meat is cooked through.
  5. Turn the heat up to high and add the remaining ingredients, bringing soup to a boil.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer, uncovered, 10-15 more minutes.

This should make approximately 6 servings (unless, like me, you need seconds!)
