A highlight is the three types of peppers used in this recipe -- poblano, red bell and serrano.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 oz Organic Ground Turkey 93 Lean, 7% Fat
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 Poblano Pepper (cooked)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 Serrano Pepper
  • 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Coriander Seed
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth Low Sodium
  • 12 oz Evaporated Fat Free Milk
  • 3/4 cup Couscous, Whole Wheat
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat the oil in a stockpot over medium. Add the turkey, onion, poblanos, bell pepper, serrano pepper, vinegar, coriander, and 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the peppers are just tender, about 15 minutes.
2 Stir the broth, evaporated milk, uncooked couscous, and remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt into the pepper mixture, increase heat to high, and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until couscous is fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning. Stir in the cilantro.
3 Ladle the soup into individual bowls, sprinkle with additional fresh cilantro leaves to garnish (if desired), and serve.
