Using turkey carcass creating white turkey chili is a magic trick. Well not really magic but it is the first thing that Grill Man enjoyed eating when flipping flu showed up uninvited. Apparently when you have flipping flu everything that you eat does not taste good. Imagine my continuous surprise when after whipping up a made-from-scratch meal, Grill Man didn’t like it. We won’t discuss how many times it happened.
Believe me when I say that I tried many times before I called for backup and ordered a pizza. Creole Red Beans and Rice, Beef Stew with lots of vegetables, Persimmon Walnut Sticky Bread, Salmon Quiche, Pumpkin Bread and then some. Nothing brought a smile to his face.
Somewhere around week two, I started getting a complex . Grill Man requested Popeye’s red beans and rice. By this point I really just wanted him to eat. Happy to buy the desired Popeye’s. His taste buds turned his nose up to this as well. Ha, I have to say I was relieved.
Use Turkey Carcass to support Waste Not Want Not
Despite the challenge, I kept cooking for my patient. Using turkey carcass creating white turkey chili was an answer to a prayer. Finally, I managed to break thru the huge barrier of the flipping flu wall and found something he would enjoy eating.
Chicken or turkey soup is good for what ails you or your patient. Although it’s not a miracle pill it will help your patient feel better. There is nothing better than a hot bowl of homemade soup on a cold wintry day. White Turkey Chili could also be made from a rotisserie chicken. Follow the same method but swap chicken for turkey.
Using turkey carcass creating White Turkey Chili is part of my Waste Not Want Not category. Using a turkey carcass offers great economy and a base for a healthy soup. Homemade stocks are delicious, offer so much more flavor and health than store-bought stocks. Yes they are more work but so worth the extra dose of love, flavor and benefits.
