When I worked full time in the city, on those rare occasions I don't bring leftovers for lunch at work, I always bought the Turkey Chili Soup from Fresh and Co. This homemade version is just as good, and so much cheaper than buying it! Light, healthy and one cup always fills me up.
Now I know I have quite a few chili recipes on my site, but this one is perfect when you need a quick meal. Courtesy of my friend Julia, of Julia's Healthy Italian Cooking. She's an amazing cook, a working mother of four, and always cooks her family quick healthy meals made from scratch. This soup is a super easy to make and is ready in less than 20 minutes.
For a thinner soup add more broth, or you can leave the broth out and you have yourself a bowl of chili. Don't you love recipes that can be so versatile?
