  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups diced vegetables onions, celery, peppers, cabbage, zucchini, etc.
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 to 3 cups low sodium chicken or beef broth use more if you want a thinner soup
  • 1 15- oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15- oz. can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 4- oz. can chopped green chiles
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add vegetables and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft around the edges. Take them out of the pan and place in crock pot.
  2. With same pan, place additional tablespoon of olive oil and cook ground turkey until it is browned. Use a spatula to break up the ground turkey into smaller pieces as it cooks. Place in crock pot.
  3. Add the remaining soup ingredients and spices in your slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours. It's fine if the soup cooks a little longer or the slow cooker switches to the "warm" setting.
