Turkey Dill Chowder

Did you have lots of turkey left over from Thanksgiving? I cooked my own turkey on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and had tons leftovers!  I decided to use some of it to make a chowder.  This chowder is thick and hearty. It's somewhat similar to my Chicken and Rice soup, but the dill adds a little tanginess to it.

Turkey Dill Chowder
The Double Dipped Life

2 Tb butter
1/2 onion, diced
1 Tb dill
1/2 teas garlic (or 1 clove fresh garlic)
1/3 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup diced cooked turkey
1/2 cup diced celery
1 cup red potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup corn (I use frozen)

Additional add-in possibilites:
wild rice

Melt the butter in a large soup pot. Add in the onion, dill and garlic and cook until the onions are soft.  Whisk in the flour, and cook another 2-3 minutes.  Slowly pour in the milk, whisking constantly. Add the broth and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes or until soup is thickened.

Add in the remaining ingredients, and simmer until the potatoes are cooked.
