  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil extra virgin extra virgin
  • 1 large sweet yellow onion  Vidalia
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt  kosher as needed
  • 1 teaspoon  garlic  finely minced ( 1 large or two small garlic cloves) 
  • 1 Tablespoon  jalapeño finely minced 
  • 2 pounds  ground turkey  97% lean 
  • 1/8  teaspoon  garlic granulated
  • 1/8  teaspoon  cumin ground
  • 1 package  taco seasoning mix  Trader Joe's
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans tomatoes  fire roasted  
  • 2 15.5 ounce cans beans  black
  • 1 cup  corn sweet cut off the cob
  • 1 quart  chicken broth  unsalted
  • 1 Tablespoon  Masa Harina
  • 1 pinch  sugar  granulated
  • 12 ounces Mexican shredded cheese
  • 16 ounces Greek Yogurt  2% plain
  • 1 bunch cilantro  fresh
  • 16 ounces Tortilla chips  salted or unsalted


  • Add olive oil to a large 6-quart pot. Test the oil by adding a piece of the diced onion. If it sizzles, add the onions—season with a pinch of salt. Sauté for 3 minutes, and then add garlic and jalapeño.
  • Add the ground turkey. Using the star meat chopper, break apart the meat—and season with salt, granulated garlic, and cumin. Add 3/4 of the Taco seasoning, then continue cooking until the meat is cooked. 
  • Add tomatoes, beans, corn, and 1 quart of chicken broth. 
  • Combine 1 Tablespoon cold water with enough Massa Harina to create a thin slurry, then add it to the soup with a pinch of sugar. Garnish the soup with Mexican shredded cheese, Greek Yogurt, Cilantro, and Tortilla chips, and serve.
  • Cook the soup for 15-30 minutes. 
  • Note: Soup will thicken as it cools. Tortilla chips are not included in the nutrition calculation.
