Turkey & Corn Chowder

Here's a new favorite recipe to use up your leftover turkey from Christmas. There were only four of us over for Christmas dinner this year and the smallest free range turkey we could find was 19 lbs (!) so we've got a fair amount of leftover turkey meat sitting in the fridge.

Here's a very friendly recipe if you are into soups:

Turkey & Corn Chowder

1 onion
2 celery stalks
2 green onions
3 garlic cloves
1/2 green or red pepper (optional)
2 cups of diced potatoes
2 cups of water
2 cups of milk
1 chicken bullion cube
1 can of creamed corn
2 cups of leftover turkey

Fry up the diced onion, garlic and celery in a large pot with some butter. Simmer.

Add water, chicken bullion cube and potatoes. Allow to boil until potatoes are cooked and soft.

Add turkey (in small pieces), diced green onions, milk, corn and diced green pepper. Mix well and allow to cook at medium heat for 8 - 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add pepper to taste.

Enjoy !
