This crowd-pleasing Turkey Taco Soup gets its flavor from an aromatic base of tomatoes, onion, garlic, chipolte chile, refried beans (yes refried beans), and seasoning (cumin, oregano and chili powder). Quick and easy to make and perfect for taco night and game day!
This Turkey Taco Soup combines many of the ingredients you might find on a taco-Tuesday platter of food, but in this case they re all souped-up. Ground turkey, refried beans, tomatoes, tortillas and of course chilies. This soup is rich and flavorful and likely to become one of your favorites.
A can of organic refried beans is added to this soup, which makes the broth rich, creamy and incredibly flavorful. I like to use Amy’s  beans, because they’re organic, low in sodium and have a great flavor. But you could easily use refried black beans if you prefer, since they’re loaded with more nutritional goodness. A single canned chipotle pepper and a few heaping tablespoons of the adobo sauce are added to this soup, giving it an incredible smoky and spicy kick. I use Embasa chipotle peppers, but you could easily use a fresh jalapeño instead. This soup is on the mild side, so if you prefer things a little more spicy, add more peppers or chilies to your liking.
I also add a handful of crushed tortilla chips to this soup adding to it’s incredible flavor. But you could add fresh sweetcorn kernels, sliced straight from the cob instead. This soup is awesome as-is straight from the pot, but you can also be generous with cheese, cilantro, avocado, sour cream and green onions for garnish. I’m sure no one would complain either way. 
This Turkey Taco Soup is quick and easy to make, and it’s popular with everyone it meets! This soup will remind you of turkey chili, but the broth is a little thinner than chili.
