A variation on a classic chicken tortilla!

This has a nice kick to it and makes for an awesome soup OR dip.

It’s diverse!

(Trigger warning: I use the word liberal below. Prepare your sensitive self. I also mention the word Vote in the video so be cautious!)


  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 cups of tomato juice
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of HOT Rotel
  • 1 can of black beans
  • ½ bag of frozen corn
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • Liberal amount of Cumin
  • Liberal amount of Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • TO EAT AS A SOUP: add cheese and tortilla strips
  • TO USE AS A DIP: Add the cheese and grab a bag of chips


  • In a large soup pot, add ALL ingredients – besides the ground turkey – and let simmer.
  • In a medium size pan, cook the ground turkey with a little seasoning until it has a little crispness to it.
  • Add the turkey to the pot and let all those ingredients marry each other!
  • Cook it all on high for 5 minutes!
  • Serve hot and enjoy!

This soup is bangin!
