Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 28 oz tomatoes diced
  • 1 medium squash quartered
  • 2 carrots shredded
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 sprays olive oil spray
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or less depending on preference
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 sprigs fresh basil chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat a nonstick skillet to medium-high heat and cook the beef and turkey until cooked through. Drain any fat and set aside.
  • Spray a large stock pot with the olive oil spray and heat to medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, garlic, carrots and celery and cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, including the meats, and cook until well combined, about 5 minutes.
