Despite moving to Florida, we had a cold front roll in this past week like much of the rest of the country experienced! When cold weather rolls in, I love to pull out my Dutch oven and make soup! Today I’m sharing one of our all-time favorite recipes, my mom’s turkey corn chowder! We typically make it with chicken, but the turkey option is great if you’re looking for ideas for leftover Thanksgiving turkey!
Before jumping to the recipe, many of you know we downsized quite a bit with the move to Florida. That included purging and donating a lot of items that were seeing regular use around the house. But it also helped us identify some pieces we could really use on a frequent basis. My Dutch oven was a no-brainer to bring along, but as we donated some of our dish sets, we realized we’d really love some “real” soup bowls.
After a bit of research, I found this set of four soup bowls on Wayfair that were exactly what we were looking for. Since we typically treat soup as the entire meal when we have it, we like heftier portions. We both love the size of these bowls, and even more so, the fact they have handles! So happy we found these! I’ll be sharing even more kitchen favorites from Wayfair, along with some budget friendly alternatives to our Dutch oven, after the recipe for the chowder below.
Since it’s typically just the two of us, we’ll have leftovers with this recipe for some time. Wayfair currently has our favorite glass food storage containers on sale right now!
The Best Turkey Corn Chowder Recipe
If you’re looking for the best corn chowder recipe, look no further! Easily swap the turkey for chicken, if you’d prefer. In fact, many times I use skinless rotisserie chicken in the recipe for even more flavor! It’s the perfect cold-weather recipe, and ideal to use with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

Kitchen Essentials From Wayfair
Wayfair has all the kitchen essentials for making everything from a basic soup recipe to a holiday feast! I’m sharing some of my favorite finds below, many of which are on sale! Tap any of the images below to learn more about each of the items shown.
We currently own the 7.25 qt Dutch oven, but we’ve also strongly considered buying the 5.25 qt for smaller meals. We get so much use out of our larger one, and think the smaller size could be a great addition for smaller batches. And the soup bowls truly are a game-changer for us!
I’d love to hear if you end up trying this recipe! It truly is one of our all-time favorite meals!
