Ground Turkey Soup with Salsa Verde

I discovered this ground turkey soup recipe at Trader Joes last year. It was one of their taste testers, which I never turn down. It was full of flavor and packed just enough punch. I loved its Mexican flavor, and when I found out how easy it was to make, I decided to buy the ingredients and give it a go.

This easy recipe has stuck with me, but I have made a few tweaks to it. I know you will love this ground turkey soup recipe especially if you find yourself in need of a quick and easy weeknight meal. I can throw this together in less than 10 minutes and be out the door!

Tips for Making Ground Turkey Soup

This soup recipe initially called for an entire carton of chicken broth, but I find that when I use an entire carton the soup becomes too salty. I also like to add a can of beans to the soup. You could try black beans or pinto beans, or leave them out altogether. If you prefer homemade chicken broth, check out my favorite recipe!

I add some Mexican seasoning to the ground turkey while I brown it, but it isn’t really necessary. The salsa verde adds a lot of flavor! You can use any type of salsa verde, I typically keep a few jars of mild store-bought salsa in our cupboard just for this recipe, but I am sure homemade salsa verde would be amazing!

I love to top my soup with avocado, cilantro, and lime. Red onions would be delicious as well, but these aren’t necessary! This soup is truly delicious without any toppings. I think you will be surprised how flavorful this easy soup is, I know I was!
