Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Plan ahead. Make your own sodium free vegetable broth by saving the seasoned water anytime you boil or steam veggies. It will keep in your freezer for several months. Prepared broths available for purchase at the grocery store are not usually sodium free.
  2. Puree 2 lbs of roma tomatoes in food processor. Slice onions into rings. Chop bell peppers into large slices.
  3. Chop cilantro, then add all vegetables (except spring onions) to 5 quart crock pot with 24 ounces tomato paste. Sprinkle Fajita sauce, Chile powder, and Ancho Chile Pepper over vegetables. Add 2 cups sodium-free vegetable broth.
  4. If you wish to reduce sodium content further, substitute 2 additional pounds of pureed roma tomatoes instead of using tomato paste. Soup will still have great flavor but be a bit less sweet with less sodium.
  5. Cook in crock pot on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Add browned turkey or lean ground beef anytime after 6 hours.
  6. Top off with a few bell pepper rings and spring onions during last hour of cooking.
