Holy Mole!

the winter struggle is real.

I make this stoup (half soup, half stew) every winter. Mainly because it's super easy and it pairs great with a major storm or hurricane - because eating a bunch of meat and melted cheese is going to take away the fact that we're all duck and covering under our beds somewhere. At least we can enjoy some comfort food during an uncomfortable time, right? This is all you'll need:

Turkey Mole Soup

  • 1 t oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 T chili powder
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup bottled mole
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans low sodium chicken broth, combine mole and chicken broth whisk together
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 1 (19 oz) can black beans drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies 

Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium heat.  Add turkey, cook 5 minutes or until browned stirring to crumble.  Add onion, bell pepper, chili powder, and garlic.  Cook 5 minutes stirring frequently. Combine the chicken broth and mole.  Add this broth and rest of ingredients and bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve with chopped cilantro, crushed tortilla chips an some shredded cheese.*
