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 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).

Pantry Turkey Taco Soup Recipe


  • 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.
