“No, that's not a typo. My DH calls my soups "stoup" because I make them THICK. My oldest son is down with a head cold and a sore throat and I didn't have time for my usual, homemade chicken and noodle soup so I whipped this up instead of the planned dinner he wouldn't have been able to eat. You don't have to have a head cold to enjoy this. You just need to be looking for a bowlful of meaty goodness and colorful veggies with a little extra zip. Note -- "vegetable juice cocktail" is V-8. But that isn't in the ingredient database so I can't say it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, brown the ground turkey and onions in a little olive oil.
  2. Add all the other ingredients and bring to boil.
  3. Simmer 15-20 minutes, until rice is soft and flavors are well blended.
  4. Note: If you prefer a thinner, more brothy consistency add more chicken stock and taste to adjust seasonings.
  5. Note: The jalapenos don't make this really hot -- just a little zippy. If even this is too much substitute the milder Anaheims or "Cubanelle"-type sweet peppers. If its not spicy enough for you go for whatever variety suits your taste.
  6. Note -- I haven't frozen it, but it ought to freeze as well as any other soup.
