    Turkey Corn Chowder

    What to do with leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Make this super easy recipe for Turkey Corn Chowder. Preparing Thanksgiving dinner can be a lot of work and take a lot of time. Working in the kitchen the whole day can be quite stressful so after the busy Holidays, it’s nice to sit back and relax with an ice cold beer or a bottle of wine without worrying about what’s for dinner or what to cook for lunch. Reward yourself with a warm and hearty bowl of corn chowder made with leftover roasted turkey.

    As easy as casserole, this recipe allows you to simply throw all the ingredients in the pot without much fuss and effort, and let the soup cook practically by itself. You’ll have a deliciously comforting dish in no time. With this simple recipe, you don’t have to eat the same roasted turkey over and over again until the large bird is gone, you can make salad with some of the meat and eat it with this special bowl of turkey corn chowder. Together they make an intimate dinner spread that is almost as special as Thanksgiving itself. This chowder recipe also makes a heartwarming and uplifting meal during cold winter nights or depressing rainy days.

    This corn chowder recipe also works excellently with roasted chicken in place of turkey and lima beans instead of corn. Or for a truly flavorful thick and filling soup, why not make it with both turkey and chicken, and corn and lima beans. This way, the soup makes up a full meal. Serve it with some garlic bread for a really yummy dinner.

    For a magical meal, savor turkey corn chowder with a glass of Pinot Noir, an exquisitely flavored red wine that pairs well with turkey. Low in tannin, this gorgeous wine won’t overpower the very tasty dish. If you like white wines more than reds, go for a light and crisp Chardonnay or lean and subtly spicy Pinot Gris.
