Crockpot Turkey Soup With Rice

After you are finished removing most of the meat of your turkey, use the carcass to make turkey stock. You can then use that stock to make this delicious turkey and rice soup right in your crockpot.

* 4 cups turkey broth
* 2 to 4 slices cooked bacon, diced
* 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1/2 cup diced or matchstick carrots
* 1/2 cup chopped celery
* 1/2 cup chopped onion
* 1/4 cup rice
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
* 1 to 2 cups diced cooked turkey

Chop up your bacon, carrots, celery, onion and turkey. Add everything but the corn and turkey in your crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours. Add the corn and turkey and cook an additional hour before serving.

I serve this with a loaf of homemade bread the day after Thanksgiving. By using my breadmaker for the bread and my crockpot for the soup, there isn’t much cooking to do which is nice. The rather light soup is always a welcome change in our house after the feasting the day before.
