Turkey Corn Chowder

Submitted by: PIEGRRL

Introduction

This chowder is healthy due to fat free half and half, delicious turkey breast, and lots of vegetables. It is a terrific way to use previously roasted turkey. But if you don't have any leftover, most stores sell fresh turkey breast cutlets. Simply cook the cutlets over medium heat, then cut into chunks and add to the soup, along with the pan juices!

Ingredients

    16 ozs. Cooked Turkey breast meat, cut into chunks
    1 Cup Onions, chopped
    2 cups chopped green onions, divided
    2 cups Butternut Squash,cubed
    1/4 cup Flour
    9 cups Chicken stock
    4 tbsp Butter, unsalted
    4 cup kernelsYellow Sweet Corn, Frozen
    2 cups Russet Potatoes, diced
    1.5 tsp fresh thyme
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tblsp chopped fresh cilantro
    2 cup, chopped red peppers
    1 cup Fat free half and half

Directions

Add butter to a heavy-bottom soup pot. Melt over medium heat, then add onions and 1 cup of the peppers. Saute until the onions are soft, or around 10 minutes. Add flour and stir, cooking about 2 minutes. You want the flour to brown slightly, which will take away the flour taste. Add the stock, squash, potatoes and thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered til the squash and potatoes are tender-about 12 mintues. Add the corn, cream, and the rest of the peppers. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Add turkey, 1 cup green onions and cilantro. Simmer another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and top with additional green onion and cilantro as you wish.
