Smoky Turkey Corn Chowder with Bacon

['6 slices bacon (4 ounces)', '1 medium yellow onion, chopped', '1 medium carrot, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds (halved lengthwise if large)', '1 teaspoon kosher salt', '1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper', '1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped', '1/2 medium jalapeño, finely chopped, plus more to taste', '1 teaspoon ground cumin', '6 cups (48 ounces) homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken or turkey broth', '1 medium sweet potato (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes', 'Two 4-ounce cans mild diced green chiles, drained', '2 teaspoons dried oregano', '2 dried bay leaves', '4 cups shredded turkey or rotisserie chicken', '10 ounces frozen corn, thawed', '3/4 cup half-and-half, plus more to taste', 'Sliced scallions, for serving', 'Chopped parsley', 'for serving']

In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and crumble into small pieces and set aside, reserving the fat in the pot.
Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat, return the pot to medium heat, and add onion, carrot, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes more. Add jalapeño and cumin and cook, stirring, 1 minute more.
Add broth, sweet potato, chiles, oregano, and bay leaves and bring to a simmer. Cook until sweet potato is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the turkey or chicken and corn and cook until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and half-and-half. Continue to cook until just warmed through. Taste and adjust seasoning, thinning the chowder with another 1/4 cup half-and-half, if desired.
Serve chowder topped with crumbled bacon, scallions, and parsley.
