CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - We're about to get our first taste of fall with temperatures dropping. StormTeam Meteorologist Grant Dade is ready with the forecast and something to warm you up. Grant is a wiz in the kitchen and whips up his quick and easy Turkey Corn Chowder that's great for warming you up on a cold day, or getting rid of any turkey you have leftover from holiday meals throughout the autumn and winter months.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. leftover turkey (shredded)
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cans of cream of potato soup
  • 1 can of cream style corn
  • I can of yellow corn kernel (do not drain)
  • 1 can of white hominy (do not drain)
  • ½ cup of diced onion
  • ½ cup diced bell pepper
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • ¼ cup of blackening seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cans milk

Directions:

In a stock pot sauté your peppers, onions, and celery along with the blackening season and 2 tablespoons of butter. Cook until onions are translucent, or about 8 minutes.

Do not drain your canned corn or hominy. Add canned corn, hominy, and cream soups to stock pot and simmer for 5 minutes.  Next add 2 cans of milk, measuring by pouring milk into empty corn cans.

Finally, add your turkey and simmer for 2 to 3 hours on low heat.

If you don't want to wait, you can bring the soup to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
