Turkey Taco Soup Mac Ingredients

Here’s your line-up of ingredients.  I used Old El Paso’s Taco Seasoning and Chopped Green Chilies.

Why Should I Use Ground Turkey?

Turkey Taco Soup Mac

Ground turkey is a great alternative to ground beef every now and then!  Three ounces of ground turkey has 190 calories while three ounces ground beef has 248 calories. There is one gram of fat in ground turkey and ground beef has 18 grams. The cholesterol levels have a major difference. While ground turkey has 55 milligrams, ground beef has 76 milligrams. And finally, ground turkey has 26 grams of protein and ground beef as 20 grams.

Start by browning and seasoning your ground turkey.

Can I Leave Out The Pasta?

Turkey Taco Soup Mac

Yes, you can leave out the pasta in this recipe, no problem.  The mac gives the soup lots of volume, so just know it will be much more “soupy” than thick 🙂

Add your dry pasta, cover to cook until ad dente.

Tips For Turkey Taco Soup Mac

*Feel free to substitute the protein to whatever you are in the mood for.  Ground beef, chicken and even sausage works great

*Be sure to not overcook the pasta.  Test it after 6 minutes then turn heat to low/simmer.

*Top each bowl with sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro and your favorite hot sauce if desired.
