Taco Soup - Fast & Easy

1 lb. lean ground turkey (85%-90% lean ground turkey is best)
1 28 oz can tomato sauce
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can corn (drained)
1 14 0z can kidney beans (drained)
1 package taco seasoning mix (check out your local health food store for a healthy taco seasoning mix)

Cook the ground turkey and drain the excess oil. In a saucepan add turkey to remaining ingredients. Add 4 cups of water to the mix and cook on med/high heat until nice and warm. Serve with home baked chips, light sour cream and a little cheese. Yummy!

*Optional variations:
Cook turkey with desired amount of onion.
Use textured vegetable protein or any other meat substitute in place of turkey.
Use low-fat plain yogurt in place of light sour cream.
Frozen corn can be used in place of canned corn.
Black or pinto beans are also a wonderful additon!
Add tofu for a creamier texture with the added benefits!
