Turkey and Wild Rice Soup (great for leftover turkey!)

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup (great for leftover turkey!)
Serves around 12

I just got an order from them with a handful of imps, so I don't need any more. But here's a recipe anyway in the spirit of Thanksgiving feasting.......

4 to 5 (10.75 oz each) cans condensed chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 cup wild rice
     (I use a package of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild rice, and use their spice packet)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (I use 2 bunches of green onions)
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup whole kernel corn ( I usually use a whole pkg of the frozen one - the smaller pkg)
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups half and half (the fat free one works fine)
2 to 3 cups cubed turkey or chicken (cooked)
8 slices bacon - fried crisp and crumbled
3 tbsp. diced pimento

Add the Rice ( I use original or the herb one) to the chicken broth and water in a large pan Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 min. Add veggies and turkey.

In separate pan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and stir till bubbly Add in poultry seasoning, salt and pepper and the half  & half. When smooth and bubbly add to the rice mixture, stirring constantly until well blended. Simmer 30 minutes.
