An easy and delicious spicy soup made with ground turkey breast. Control the spice level by the picante sauce you use (we like medium). Also works well with ground pork.

5 stars for ease of preparation and 5 for flavor! Winner! I didn't have a jar of picante sauce but I had just made a fresh salsa from this site. I pulsed the salsa in my blender for a couple seconds. Wow did this turn out really good! Keep in mind that the soup will only be as good as the quality of picante sauce you use. This makes 6 small servings so it's perfect to pair with a sandwich for lunch. Read More

This is pretty tasty and very simple. As a starter it s good but it has little to stick to your ribs. I added corn and diced tomato which helped but it still needs something more if you want this as a meal. Read More

Surprisingly good! I didn't have high hopes for this one but I had all the ingredients on hand and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did! Next time I'll use homemade salsa since I think the flavor would be even better. I also don't think the oil Is necessary so I'll omit that next time. I garnished with sour cream shredded cheddar and avocado.. Read More

Excellent one of my favorite soups ever! I am only making tortilla soup this way it was so easy and very flavorful! I used my favorite salsa in place of the picante sauce just for my own personal taste preference. Read More
