6 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups soup and 1 tablespoon sour cream)

Tips: Crush cumin seeds with a mortar and pestle, or place seeds in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, and crush with a mallet or rolling pin. Make soup ahead and freeze in an airtight container up to three months, or store in the refrigerator for up to four days in a nonaluminum container. Thaw if frozen, then reheat over low heat.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and next 5 ingredients (onion through garlic), and sauté 5 minutes. Stir in water, salt, broth, and beans. Bring to a boil, and cover. Reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until tender.

Step 2

Place half of bean mixture in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Return pureéd bean mixture to pan. Stir in turkey, bell pepper, parsley, sherry, and hot sauce; cook an additional 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Ladle soup into bowls, and top with sour cream. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.

This was pretty good and fairly easy.  Next time I'll add more hot sauce though to give it more of a kick.
