I've been asked a lot recently to share a recipe that I have modified from a few different sources. Carol and the kids love it, and it would be a perfect meal for this Sunday's Super Bowl. This is definitely a cheat day meal! Let me know what you think. - Jeremy
Turkey Potato Corn Chowder
1 package of Trader Joe’s mirepoix (Carrots, Onions, Celery)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
3 slices precooked Bacon diced (optional)
1 bag of Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn
1 32oz Container Organic Chicken Broth
1/2 cup water
3-4 large gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 pint half & half
1 cup shredded cheddar or mixed cheese
Minced fresh parsley, optional
Separate onions and celery from mirepoix mixture. Add diced cooked bacon, carrots, potatoes, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and chill powder to Crockpot and set to low for 4-5 hours.
While Crockpot is warming, sauté onion and celery with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until onions sweat.
Add Turkey meat to mixture and brown (I always use a couple of dashes Italian seasoning here too).
Transfer turkey meat, onions, and celery to Crockpot and continue to cook on low for 4 hours (taste periodically and season accordingly) or until potatoes are cooked fully. Add 1 pint of half & half and 1 cup of cheese at the end of cook time, continue to simmer for another 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
