Smoked Turkey Chowder


This is one thing to do with leftover turkey!  Turned out really good.  Butter, cream and a shot of sherry makes everything turn out “good”! 

Brown 1 large chopped onion and a pound of chopped carrots in 1/2 stick butter. I added 4 large whole cloves of garlic.   Stir in 3 – 4 T of flour; cook for a minute or two.  Whisk in 4 cans chicken broth; bring to a simmer.  Add leftover chopped turkey.  Cover and simmer.  Cook rice separately. My “inspiration” recipe called for wild rice but my post-Thanksgiving budget called for generic white rice.  Thus the compromise of a “blend”.  Stir cooked rice into soup; add 1 cup heavy cream; bring to a simmer; turn down the heat and ladle it up!!
