  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey breast

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 (1-ounce) package 25%-less-sodium taco seasoning

  • 2 ½ cups water

  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels

  • 1 (15 ounce) can unsalted black beans, rinsed

  • 1 (15 ounce) can unsalted pinto beans, rinsed

  • 1 (15 ounce) can unsalted diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 (10 ounce) can mild red enchilada sauce

  • ¾ cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese

  • 6 tablespoons plain whole-milk strained (Greek-style) yogurt

  • 1 medium avocado, pitted and chopped

  • 1 ½ cups tortilla chips, coarsely crushed

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add turkey; cook, stirring often to crumble, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and taco seasoning; cook, stirring constantly, until the turkey and onion are coated, about 1 minute. Stir in water, corn, black beans, pinto beans, tomatoes and enchilada sauce; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Divide the soup among 6 bowls; top evenly with cheese, yogurt, avocado, chips and cilantro.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
