DIRECTIONS

  • Break up turkey carcass and place with leftover meat in a large stock pot.
  • Cover completely with water.
  • Add chopped onion and bay leaf.
  • Bring to boil then cover and simmer for 1 hour (Meat should fall easily from bone).
  • Strain juices and pour back in pot, along with one or two cans of chicken broth for a fuller flavor (Boullion is also OK, but keep in mind you will have less liquid to work with).
  • Separate meat and chop any large pieces, then return to pot.
  • Discard any bones, skin, leftover stuffing and other non-edibles.
  • Add beans, tomatoes, garlic and spices.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for twenty minutes to reduce liquid.
  • You may wish to add a bit of flour, if the sauce is thin: To minimize lumps, ladle a cup of liquid into a mixing bowl and whisk in flour a teaspoon at a time, then stir into chili (Keep in mind that chili will thicken in the refrigerator or freezer, so if you are planning to store it, a little thin is OK).
  • Serve and garnish with shredded cheese, chopped onions, scallions, cilantro and sour cream, or dip with crackers.
