Just the perfect casual bowl of deliciousness after the big holiday meal.
In a large heavy pot or stock pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add bacon and cook until bacon begins to brown. Add celery, onion, red pepper, mushrooms, carrots, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is transparent and completely softened. Sprinkle with chipotle powder and stir to coat evenly. Blend in flour and cook until it starts to bubble. Gradually add the broth, stirring constantly.
Turn up the heat a bit and bring the soup to a low boil. Boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat slightly and add the corn, sweet potato, half-and-half, soy sauce, parsley, and thyme. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until sweet potato is tender. Add turkey and simmer for 20 minutes or until thoroughly warmed. Test flavor and add salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with crackers or warm bread.
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
I found this copycat recipe online—it really does taste remarkably similar to Wendy’s Chili, only it’s a bit heartier than what I usually get when I hit my local drive-thru. Be warned, this recipe makes a ton—it’ll fill a 5 1/2-quart Dutch oven almost to the rim. Add cheese or sour cream if you like, but they’re really not needed here.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
