Heat aficionados will love this hearty, tasty and pretty healthy recipe using lean ground turkey. Shredded sharp cheddar, diced onion, and light sour cream make excellent toppings.
In soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup of the onions and the habanero peppers (avoid breathing the fumes) and saute, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add ground turkey and stir to break up into small pieces; cook and stir frequently until turkey has all turned white on outside, about 5 minutes. Add quinoa and stir to thoroughly mix in. Add remaining ingredients and stir to mix thoroughly. Cover the pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and let cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with remaining onion and optional cheese and sour cream as toppings.
