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.
- 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
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.
