This is one of my "tried-and-true" recipes that I always make after Thanksgiving when the turkey leftovers are just about used up. The carcass makes a wonderful broth, and it's amazing how much more meat is made available after boiling those bones!

"I made this soup for dinner tonight and it was so good hubby went back for seconds. I pared the recipe down for the two of us and used baby carrots which I had on hand. I took another reviewer's advice and used whole kernel corn. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. Delicious and so easy to prepare. I highly recommend this delicious soup as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"Our fellowship teacher said this was delicious.

I used two different chicken stocks, Wolfgang Puck's & Swanson. Also used organic carrots, celery and 1 1/2 tsps. chili powder. Added minced garlic & garlic powder.
Next time I'll substitute plain corn instead of the creamed corn as that gave it a sweet taste."
