Mexican Vegetable and Turkey Soup

Mexican Vegetable and Turkey Soup

IMG_6754This Delicious soup is easy to make, full of fresh ingredients, and really hits the spot when you want something healthy.  You could also omit the turkey, use vegetable broth and make this a vegetarian dish.  Heck, you could also add in a little bit of cooked barley for a little more substance if you are making this vegetarian.

Be sure to use the flavored diced tomatoes, as this will add lots of nice flavor to the broth.

 

 

 

 

 

Top with a little sour cream and more fresh cilantro and you have a delicious meal.  I froze about half of this so I can have it next week, too.  Fresh vegetables, lean meat, perfect meal.  Enjoy.
