Taco Soup

I bought a tube of the Jenny-O Taco flavored ground turkey and cooked it up last night. It was pretty good-- the other toppings masked the softer texture of the ground turkey (softer when compared to ground beef). With only 2 people in the house, I had a lot left over. So, I decided to make Taco Soup for lunch today. Due to the high garlic and onion flavors already pleasant in the meat, I should only have to add a few spices. This is what I did:

I added 3T. chili powder, 1T. ground cumin and 2tsp. ground coriander to the meat in a saucepan. Then I added 1 (15 oz can, no salt added) tomato sauce and 1 (14.5 oz can) low sodium chicken broth along with one can of red kidney beans (drained and rinsed). I'll let ya know how it turned out after lunch today!
