This hearty Central Mexico-inspired soup is an easy, one-bowl version of everyone's favorite dinner: taco night. All of the ingredients simmer together to make a robust, flavorful bowl that's especially good with a side of crispy tortilla chips. And with only one dirty pot and a few dirty soup bowls, it's totally fuss-free.
This is a great soup to make after Thanksgiving, when you have leftover turkey to use up and want to do as little cooking as possible. It's a great way to repurpose cooked, shredded breast or dark meat to create a totally different dish. No one will be complaining of leftover fatigue with this recipe.
1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil
1 small red onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juice

Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the oil, followed by the onion. Sauté for 2 minutes.
Add the bell pepper, jalapeño and garlic. Sauté for 2 more minutes.
Add the chili powder, cumin, and oregano and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Add the tomatoes and juice, pinto beans, turkey and broth, and stir. Season with salt and pepper.
Turn up the heat and bring to a simmer.
Turn the heat to low and let simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Serve topped with diced avocado or a dollop of sour cream and tortilla chips.
- The typical ground beef is replaced with shredded turkey for a lighter meal—or you can replace it with cooked chicken, if that's what you have on hand.
