Ingredients

  • 10-13 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 6 cubes beef bullion
  • 6 cups water boiling
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2.5 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 medium dill pickles diced
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice optional
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Turn your crockpot on to the low setting. 
  • Chop and in a large deep skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. 
  • While the bacon is cooking, add the melted butter and spices to the crockpot.   
  • Mix tomato paste into the butter and spice mixture. 
  • Once the bacon is nice and crispy, use a slatted spoon to scoop out the bacon and let drain on a paper towel then set aside. Keep the bacon grease in the skillet. Add the ground turkey to the bacon grease and brown. I like to break up the browned meat with a potato masher. 
  • Add the ground turkey to the crockpot with all it's juices. 
  • Stir in the diced dill pickles. (Don't be scared of the pickles, they take this soup from ordinary to extraordinary!) 
  • Stir in the shredded cheese until melted. 
  • Boil the water and stir in the beef bullion cubes until completely dissolved. Then slowly stir broth into the crockpot. Cover and let cook for 3 hours.
  • Whisk in softened cream cheese and let cook for 10 minutes or until it's fully incorporated.  
  • Turn the crockpot off and whisk in the heavy cream. 
  • Serve in bowls, top with the crispy bacon and enjoy.
