Good Morning Friends! It’s been so sunny here in central Oregon. I feel a spring in my step, and a desire to get into the beautiful outdoors more! On my stove cooking this week is this Pantry Turkey Taco Soup Recipe!

Last week I shared this salad recipe and a few goals, but quite honestly, goal setting sort of wears me out. Instead, reframing ways I want to change over the next few months (instead of a year) is more tangible for me. I say, start small, with things that will help us be more disciplined and healthy!

I don’t feel my life was out of balance to start with, except maybe a few too many sweets over the holidays, and slacking off on my exercise. Quite frankly, turning 55 this year sort of scares me! My mother was 59 when she got sick, and I know part of a healthy lifestyle is regular exercise. So I’m amping it up in that area. My kids keep reminding me, Mom, just keep moving. Never stop.

Running 4 miles this week was a huge accomplishment. I used to run for years, quite disciplined. So, with no snow on the ground right now, I’ve been able to accomplish that goal already.

I also believe if our souls aren’t healthy, it’s hard to do anything well. So for our family, we’ve started this new year reading a devotional together, God’s Wisdom for Navigating Life, by Timothy & Kathy Keller.

The Proverbs are bites of wisdom that help conduct our daily life and encourage us to make better choices. I’m so thrilled our kids are reading this with us. I feel honored to be our kids’ mom, and that our kids very much respect us parents. I don’t know what we did right, but we’ll take it. (Our kids are 25, 23, 21, the last one in college, the oldest applying for medical school this year.)

365 days of fresh, inspiring lessons and things to meditate on?

I’ll take it!

I’m also cooking, as usual, but trying to stay away from sweets. This Turkey Taco Soup Recipe is a large pot of comfort, with a lot of flavor, and our family devours it every time I make it.

Did you know that Bush’s Beans makes their refried beans with black beans?

I keep most of these ingredients in my pantry, which is why I call it Pantry Turkey Taco Soup (tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, corn, kidney beans, refried black beans, and chicken broth).

Add whatever toppings your family loves.

A little warning, that if guests are coming for dinner, you might want to double up on the recipe!

Delicous and so good and perfect for January!

What are you starting off the New Year reading?

Pantry Turkey Taco Soup Recipe

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 6


  • 1 container 14 oz mirepoix a mix of chopped carrots, celery, and onion, about 1 cup each - I buy at Trader Joe's
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 15 oz can corn drained
  • 15 oz Bush's kidney beans drained
  • 16 oz Bush's Beans black refried beans
  • 1 packet low-sodium taco seasoning
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth


  • In a large cooking/soup pot, heat the olive oil to medium heat; add the mirepoix (mix of onions, carrots, and celery), and cook on medium heat until soft, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the ground turkey and cook together until turkey is cooked through, about 5 more minutes.
  • I like to take a paper towel and lay on top of the meat mixture to take away any grease.
  • Drain the kidney beans and corn; set aside.
  • To the meat mixture, add tomato sauce, tomatoes, refried beans, taco seasoning and chicken broth. Add in the drained kidney beans and corn. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer about 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings, such as low fat sour cream, chopped red, onions, and chopped fresh cilantro.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight…delicious!!!!!  Thanks for the easy recipe!!!  Love getting your emails to inspire me!!!  

  2. Love that….I’m making a vegan enchilada casserole tonight for dinner. Trying to lighten things up and get rid of some unwanted pounds, to work on getting back into exercising. I just shared on Instagram how I want to do more reading. I enjoy fiction because, well, it doesn’t require much thought or focus, but I want to finish some of the books I’ve started, plus I should be getting a new one today (present over perfect)…lol. Right now I’m reading For the Love by Jen Hatmaker and Savor by Shauna Niequeist….great books so far.

  3. Happy New Year Sandy!!! This soup looks good.
    I am starting off the New year reading The Magnolia Story – Chip and Joanne Gaines. I have enjoyed watching their show. I think they portray the positive side of marriage.Then it’s also neat to learn about the different business’s they’ve created. So far it’s a fun read.
    Most of your blog readers probably know this but I like to buy used books off amazon – you can get great deals. So I bought this book for $7.50 :)
