Turkey Chili Soup with Hominy (blue & green dots)

Turkey Chili Soup with Hominy

  • TOTAL TIME: 35 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

This recipe evolved from a soupy, thin chili I'd been served at a recent party that was lacking in texture and flavor. Determined to strike a balance between a soup and a stew, Grace Parisi started with the basic recipe and added a bit of tomato paste and flour to thicken the broth, then gave it a kick of flavor with cumin, chile powder and chipotle powder.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1 pound ground turkey
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
  6. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  7. 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  8. Salt
  9. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  10. 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  11. 3 cups beef stock or low-sodium broth
  12. One 15-ounce can hominy, drained and rinsed
  13. Shredded cheddar, chopped cilantro, sour cream and tortilla chips, for serving
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onion and garlic and cook over high heat, stirring, until barely softened, about 3 minutes. Add the turkey, ancho powder, cumin and chipotle powder and season with salt. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon, until the liquid has evaporated and the turkey is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and then the tomato paste. Add the stock and hominy and simmer over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve with cheddar, cilantro, sour cream and tortilla chips.

Suggested Pairing

Pair with a cassis-flavored, smoky Merlot like Havens Napa Valley.
