Turkey dinners are usually a time with family, friends and delicious food. Whether it’s a large gathering or small intimate affair, memories are made, and turkeys are carved with the promise of leftovers the next day.

In this chowder recipe you can use leftover turkey or chicken. Add some bacon for a bit of smoky goodness, cream to thicken the soup and some chilies to give it a little heat. An easy soup to make and delicious the day after a big meal. Remove the chilies if you do not like heat or add more.


½ cup        bacon (4-6 pieces), chopped

½ cup        onion, chopped

½ cup        celery + leaves

1 cup         frozen corn

1 tbsp        fresh thyme, leaves removed from stems

1                yellow potato, peeled and chopped

4 cups        turkey or chicken broth

2 tbsp        green chilies, canned

1 cup         cooked turkey, chopped

½ cup        cream

1-2 tbsp     flour


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook your bacon.

When done, drain off most of the fat from the pan and place bacon on paper towel to drain. Set aside.
