Smoked chorizo gives Tortilla Soup with Chorizo and Turkey Meatballs a deep, smoky flavor without overpowering. This Tortilla Soup is a perfect go-to for parties or quick get-togethers.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, poblano, and chorizo; sauté 2 minutes. Add stock and tomatoes; bring to a simmer. Stir in tortillas.

Step 2

Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and next 4 ingredients (through egg). Shape turkey mixture into 12 meatballs. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add meatballs; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Add meatballs, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and corn to stock mixture, and simmer 5 minutes. Top with cilantro.

Quick and delicious. Have a hard time finding Spanish chorizo in my local markets, substituted with a dry cured (not refrigerated) italian salami that listed paprika on the ingredients, this seem to work well. Topped soup with a few unsalted tortilla chips and about 1 1/2 tbs. of diced avocado.

I made a double batch and was very glad I did. Very flavorful. I needed 1/2 cup of panko crumbs to get the meatballs to stay together, otherwise I was true to the recipe. Next time I will used diced fire roasted tomatoes and add a squeeze of lime just before serving. DH loved it and wants to have it again soon.

This was very tasty but I needed to add some bread crumbs when making the turkeyballs, other wise they would not take the shape of a sphere. But lovely light tasting soup .

This was very tasty. I don't eat pork so I bought vegetarian chorizo, and the recipe still worked great!

This is a keeper recipe which I will make again and again! It went together pretty quickly and was delicious! I tend to make a lot of soup because it works into our busy lifestyle so when the kids saw I was making "soup again" they groaned but they were pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. All four if us felt it was one if our favorite soup recipes. I wasn't able to buy ground turkey during my shopping trip, so substituted lean ground chicken. I was a bit afraid that this may be too spicy (my daughter doesn't like spicy) but it was well balanced and very flavorful.
