Soup comes in many different flavors, sizes, shapes, and macros! This Slow Cooker Turkey Tortilla Soup recipe we’re making today is great for meal prep, packed with protein, and absolutely delicious.
Start this one by browning 2 pounds of lean ground beef or turkey.
You could also use chicken as long as you cook it and either shred or break it up first.
Next, take out your slow cooker. You can optionally line it with one of these for easy clean up. Add in whatever meat you’re using.
Follow your meat with 1 can of enchilada sauce, 1 can of crushed or diced tomatoes, 1 can of chopped green chile peppers, 1 chopped up yellow onion, 1 package of frozen corn, some cilantro, 1 can of drained & rinsed black beans, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder, a little salt & black pepper, 1-2 bay leaves, and 4 cups of your choice bone broth.
I like to pair my bone broth with whatever meat I’m using. Turkey today means I’ll use turkey bone broth. Make sense?
Mix all of those ingredients up.

A lot of recipes don’t specifically say size, like a can of something. There are various sizes. If you are counting macros seriously that really throws them off. Some good recipes though
