Serves: 6-8

This recipe is very changeable to accommodate whatever you may have in your pantry or garden. I have written as I made it the first time but check the tips at the bottom to see how you can customize it to meet your needs.

1 lb. ground turkey
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes & green chilies

Tips: The base for this soup is the diced tomatoes & green chilies, salsa and vegetable broth with the added cumin. The rest of this recipe can be changed to accommodate whatever you might have at home or whatever meat, beans and vegetables your family prefers. You could substitute ground beef or shredded pork or chicken for the ground turkey. Any variety of vegetables can be used. If you choose to use all canned or frozen vegetables, then the soup can cook for less time or on low. If you are using fresh vegetables that take time to cook, such as carrots, celery, winter squash or potatoes, make sure it has enough time to cook. Experiment with other beans as well, such as great northern beans or pinto beans. Make Easy Corn Bread at dinner time since you let the crock pot do the work during the day. I also shared this recipe at Life As Mom's Recipe Swap and Simply Sugar & Gluten Free's Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays.
