This hearty corn chowder packed with sausage and potatoes is perfect for a cold weather meal or an everyday lunch. Serve with homemade bread or biscuits.

The chowder calls for bulk Italian sausage, but a spicy fresh chorizo or country-style sausage may be used as well, or use a mild breakfast sausage.



Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, brown the sausage with the chopped onion until sausage is no longer pink and onion is softened and lightly browned.

  3. Stir the flour into the sausage and onion mixture until well blended. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

  4. Gradually stir the chicken broth into the sausage mixture until well blended.

  5. Add the diced potatoes, corn and cream-style corn, pepper, and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

  6. Cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender.

  7. Add the half-and-half, light cream, or milk; stir in butter. 

  8.  Taste and add salt, as needed, and heat through.

  9. Serve and enjoy!
