I love soup in the winter time, because it is the perfect comfort food. And what is better for this time of year than a soup recipe using leftover turkey, like this recipe for Turkey Corn Chowder, made in the Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Turkey Corn Chowder

I received my Instant Pot for Christmas a few years ago, and I love how easy it is to cook with it. Especially for foods like soup which used to require hours of simmering the pressure cooker makes it possible to have rich, tasty soup in less than an hour.

One of my favorite things about the Instant Pot is that I can sautee ingredients right in it before using it a pressure cooker, which means less dishes to wash!

Make this Instant Pot turkey chowder even tastier by using homemade Instant Pot turkey stock in the recipe!

For this recipe I made a tasty potato chowder and then stirred the corn and turkey in at the end. I have found that prolonged cooking of smoked turkey removes a lot of smoked flavor, so I didn’t want to add it for the part where it is cooked under pressure.

Of course the recipe would still be tasty even if your turkey wasn’t smoked! I also use coconut milk to make the stew creamy, which makes the meal Paleo friendly. But you could substitute 10 oz of half and half if desired.
