I loooove soup…noodle soups, clear soups, soups that are a meal in itself.  One soup that is very easy to make and which may double as a viand is Picadillo or Ground Beef soup.  Instead of ground beef, however, I use ground turkey. :)

This soup can easily be a go-to dish when one is in a hurry because, one, it is easy to make and two, chances are, the ingredients are already in the fridge and pantry.  Oh yes, three, it is healthy, so one can take a break (if not stop altogether!) from thinking about weight loss products and eat a healthy yet filling soup.


1 head (approximately 3 Tbsps) garlic, minced
1 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion, minced
3-4 tomatoes, cubed
1 lb ground turkey
salt or patis (fish sauce) and freshly ground pepper to taste
4 cups chicken broth (beef broth if using ground beef) or water
2-3 potatoes, diced


1.  Saute the garlic in a saucepan until brown, then add the onions and tomatoes and cook until soft.
2.  Add ground turkey, salt/patis and pepper to taste.
3.  Add broth/water and potatoes.  Simmer until the potatoes are done.

Alternatively, you may use half a pound of ground beef and half a pound of ground pork.  ;)

Have a great week ahead, y’all!  Cheers!
