This soup works well with cooked chicken in place of turkey. We like things super-spicy, you can omit the jalapeno and dried chili flakes if desired. I also add in some chili powder or curry powder (which ever I feel like at the time lol!) also but that is optional, you can use milk in place of half and half cream but I have to say it is not as good, or use both!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot melt butter over medium heat; add in onions, garlic, celery, jalapeno, chili flakes and thyme; saute for about 4 minutes.
  2. Add in all remaining ingredients including the cooked turkey cubes (except whipping cream) simmer until the potatoes are fork tender (about 25-30 minutes, cooking time will depend on the size of you potatoes).
  3. Season with salt and pepper, then add in the whipping cream; bring to a simmer then remove from heat.
  4. Ladle into bowls and top/sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese then croutons if desired.

I just made this recipe - on a scale of 1 - 10 - I would rate it a very high 10!!!! It was great!!! I did not make it hot (no jalapeno or chili pepper). I also used some cornstarch to thicken it up.

Delicious soup! It's simple and tasty. This time of year I start looking for recipes to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey, so I made a trial run with leftover chicken. I used two cans of Mexicorn only because that's what I had on hand, and added every optional ingredient listed. Nice mix of ingredients and texture. Thanks, Carol, for another keeper.
