There’s nothing more satisfying on these cold days than having a hot, spicy, and thick, yet deliciously savor soup. This turkey chili soup contains all that one could wish for: hearty healthy ground turkey, creamy and thick soup with a variety of vegetables, beans, and lovely sweet corn.
To carry out the most flavor, a slight saute to brown turkey, garlic, and all the herb before simmering is a need. For the beans, pea and all, canned version work better to save time. However, you can use dry/raw bean, just soak them beforehand to save cooking time.
For the tomato, you can use can puree or prepare raw tomato just like you would for pasta sauce to produce that thick and chunky texture. To season, to light on salt and ground pepper at first, then add more as you need. Some would use Italian seasoning with the ready dried herb for extra fancy taste as well.
