    • Cook the ground turkey, onion, garlic, taco seasoning, salt, and pepper, breaking up the meat as you go until cooked through.

    • If cooking on low, turn the pot up to high about 30 minutes before serving the soup. Mix together the cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl, then whisk into the soup. Cook for 10-15 more minutes until thickened.
