This soup will be your friend on a cold winter day. Ground turkey, kale, brown rice, and spices in a tomato-based broth make this a great stand-alone meal. Add croutons, Swiss cheese, garlic bread, PJs, and a good book for a taste of happy comfort.
Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir turkey, onion, and garlic in the hot pot until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Stir in brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder, smoked and regular paprika, thyme, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, brown rice, and water; bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until rice is tender, about 40 minutes.
