Spicy Turkey and Sausage Paleo Soup

It's as good as it sounds. So versatile too. It can go many ways, soup, stew, and breakfast!
It just hits the spot, and freezes up great for left overs. You can make up any size batch, nothing is too exact with this. My measurements are more of what I did, it's not set in stone. 
It's hearty and healthy, enjoy.

1-2 Pounds of Ground Turkey
1 Pound of Jalapeno Sausage
1 large sweet potato (more or less)
3-4 cups of chicken broth (more for soup, less for stew)
1 can of organic tomatoes fire roasted pepper w/ green chilies (I used Muir Glen Organic)
1-2 cups baby carrots
1+ cups of bell peppers, I used red, yellow and green for color and taste. Use your favorite.
4-5 celery stalks
3-4 scallion/green onion (save the green for garnish)
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp basil
1/4 cup fresh cilantro 
Salt & Pepper 

Peel and dice sweet potato. Slice your sausage. 
I mix all my spices in a bowl with the can of tomatoes before I add it to the crock pot. That way I can ensure every thing is soaked in flavor!
If you will be around while it's cooking give it a stir occasionally to make sure everything is distributed evenly.
I cooked on low for 8 hours. That should be the minimum time. For hearty stews I wouldn't recommend the 4 hours on high. You can, it just doesn't do it justice.

A fried egg and bacon is an amazing addition! Have a slice of Paleo Sandwich Bread to dunk!

  1. Wow, lots of protein! I love that. I'd just skip the cilantro because there are so many haters in my family!
