Southwestern Turkey Soup


Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 6

This hearty soup is a fantastic way to use leftover turkey and squash from the holiday feast.


1 Tbs vegetable oil

2 medium green bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 cups cubed, peeled, cooked butternut squash

2 cups shredded cooked turkey or chicken

2 cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)

1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained

1 can (16 oz) Old El Paso® refried black beans

1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso® 40% less sodium taco seasoning mix


Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat; add bell peppers. Cook 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers are almost crisp-tender. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking to bottom of pan. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors.

Are you using leftover cooked squash that's already mashed? Simply stir it in with other ingredients for a thicker soup.

Cut-up, ready-to-cook squash can be found in the produce section of many grocery stores and club stores during the fall and winter.
