- Ground turkey
- Creamed corn
- Southwest corn
- Salt & pepper
In a frying pan over medium heat add the oil and cook the diced onions for a few minutes then add in the ground turkey. While the turkey is cooking you can cut up the potatoes. You can use peeled or unpeeled, whichever you prefer. I used mini gold potatoes for this recipe, cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
Once the turkey is cooked, drain it and add it to the slow cooker. Add in the creamed corn, southwest corn, cream, salt & pepper.
Here is the southwest corn used in this recipe, if you can’t find this exact can just look around in your grocery store for something similar. You could also use regular canned corn and add in some diced peppers and jalapenos. Frozen corn is also an option and your local grocery store may carry a southwest frozen corn blend.
The cream I use is a half and half cream. You can use heavier cream if you wish it just might affect the overall WW points in the recipe for those who count points.
Cook the soup on low in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours, until the potatoes are cooked through, or high for 3-4 hours.
Can I use a different meat in this other than ground turkey?
Yes absolutely! You can swap out the ground turkey for ground beef or chicken. Maybe use shredded chicken or sausage. Feel free to add any cooked meat to this soup recipe that suits you best. You could also make it vegetarian by leaving out the meat and adding some beans, lentils, or rice instead. If you want to bulk it up with some extra vegetables you can add some. You might need to add in extra cream or some broth if it seems to thick if you do add extra vegetables.
Can I add some spices to this soup?
You sure can! I kept it simple with just some salt & pepper. You can add in some garlic, oregano, or parsley. If you want to spice it up a little try some red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Can I make this soup in a pot on the stove?
Yes, if you’d rather use a pot on the stove then cook the ground turkey and onions in a frying pan. Drain and add all of the ingredients to a large pot. Cook over medium heat for 1 hour, check the potatoes, if they are still firm continue cooking until the potatoes are tender.
Storing and reheating
Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days, or freeze it. To reheat, dethaw then cook in a pan on the stovetop over medium heat. You can add a little cream or broth if it seems too thick.

If you cannot get southwest corn (never heard of it here in South western Ontario) is regular kernel corn suitable with maybe some seasoning?
Hi Allison, yes absolutely!
