Taco Soup

So, a couple of years ago, I decided to use more turkey than beef. Last night I made this chili using ground turkey. It was GREAT! I am sure every Mormon household has this recipe in it's book, but just in case, give it a try. It is also a QUICK meal, taking all of 20 minutes. (I do make huge batches of black beans and kidney beans and freeze them to avoid using so much canned items in this recipe.)


1 lb. of ground turkey (I use the very lean stuff)
1 large can of petite diced tomatoes in it's juice
1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
2 cups black beans
2 cups kidney beans
1 can water
1 pkg. taco seasonings
salt and pepper to taste


Brown the turkey. (when it's lean there is nothing to drain)
Add rest of ingredients and simmer. Serve. 
This works great in a crock pot and tastes even better after simmering all day!
Best served with shredded cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce and oyster crackers or chips.
