Gluten, Dairy, and Soy Free Turkey Taco Soup

I made taco soup all.the.time. before giving up gluten, dairy and soy. I panicked a bit when winter rolled around and I didn't think I was going to be able to make taco soup any longer. But I was wrong! My recipe required a few changes where the seasonings are concerned, but the taste is identical.

You can easily make this recipe in your crock pot by cooking the meat and onion ahead of time, adding the seasoning, then placing the ingredients in your crock pot for the day. Your house will smell so yummy when you come home!

You'll Need:
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 lb. Ground Turkey {or beef, chicken}
1 {large, diced} Onion
Taco Seasoning {I use homemade--recipe here}
3 Cans of Beans {kidney, pinto, black, or a combination}
1 {large} Can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 Can of Whole-Kernel Corn {not cream-style!}
1 Can of Diced Green Chilis

Your choice of garnish: Fritos, Green Onions, {dairy-free} Sour Cream, and/or Dairy Free Cheese alternative {I love Daiya}.

To Make:
Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pan. I use my enameled cast iron dutch oven.
Saute the onion and ground meat until cooked through.
Add taco seasoning to taste, as you would for tacos, adding a bit of water to help blend the mixture.
Add the beans, tomatoes, corn, and green chili's, and stir to combine.
Add a bit of water {about one can full}, cover, and simmer for at least an hour.

Serve with desired toppings.

  1. Your soup looks delicious. We enjoy taco soup here. My dairy eaters will add cheese, but I think it's great without. Thanks for sharing this at Gluten-Free Wednesdays.

  2. I'm going to make this in the next couple days with some leftover taco meat!
