  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 6 servings


In a large pot over medium heat melt the coconut oil.

Add the diced onion, zucchini, squash, bell pepper and jalapeno. Saute until translucent and fragrant.

Add the ground turkey and cook until no longer pink.

Add the spices and garlic at this point and let "meld" together a couple minutes before adding the liquids.

Add the canned tomatoes, beans, chicken stock and the hot sauce. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until flavors develop more richly.

Adjust seasonings if needed ( I usually always add more salt )

Top with cilantro and Greek style yogurt if desired and Enjoy!

I think it’s very tasty, satiating and a meal for anyone! Whether they’re doing PS1000 or not! Thanks for it. This is my 1st week (officially 1 full week tomorrow) and I’ve prepared numerous meals from your collection of recipes. Each has been great! My wife eats so well anyway. So she is loving that I’m now doing the cooking of food that she’ll actually join in with me to eat. 🙂 Thanks so much!

I frozen the soup in small containers for a delicious meal anytime!

I don’t like squash but made this due to recommendations. I did leave out the zucchini but I loved it.

Loved it and I don’t like squash.

Absolutely delicious!!! I think this will be a weekly meal. I live in Florida and even in this heat (all year round these days) I can still eat this almost daily.

It’s very flavorful and I added more cayenne and hot sauce so it’s extra hot. My son is dying to try it, this is dinner for me tomorrow night ?

This is wonderful! I am so glad that you enjoyed it and your husband did as well! I find that people are often afraid that “healthy” food is going to be gross, but once they taste how good it can be they are much more open minded about it.

Today is my first day and I decided to try the Taco Soup. It was delicious and very filling. My husband was very skeptical. He loved it as much as I did and had to have an extra serving. (He is not on a weight loss program.)
