Recipe by Irmgard

I don't know how this turkey and corn chowder got the name of Beggar's Chowder. Probably because it is so delicious, you will beg for a second bowl! From "Slow Cooker Favorites".

Holy moly oleyo. This is unbelievably good. I had that little booklet and made it today. It's pretty simple, appealing. Great smell factor. You could probably "liten" it, but I made as is for a first try. 10 thumbs up.
