If you're watching your carb intake, this is a good recipe to substitute cauliflower for the potatoes. I actually prefer this soup with the cauliflower over the potatoes. To cut the fat/calories, using half (or more) the amount fat free evaporated milk and replacing the other half (or more) with organic chicken broth is really good, too. I do saute a couple cloves of minced garlic in with the onion and I'll shake in a little red pepper flake.

Made as is, this is delicious. I didn't cook my potatoes ahead of time, I just threw them in with the sausage and the corn to simmer. I also used skim milk, and it thickened up nicely. Aside from the entire stick of butter or margarine and the entire pound of sausage, this is a pretty healthy meal, you know, not counting these two Next time I'll omit the salt, as the sausage makes it salty enough, and I'll try a reduced fat smoked sausage. With all that said, this is one cheap, delicious meal.


DELICIFABULOSITY! I made this yesterday, and it is now number 1 favorite of my family. I can't believe how much flavor it has, and am glad I doubled it. Being that New Orleans leads the title, I had to add a pinch of crushed red pepper, a dash of cayenne, and a heaping tsp. of Creole seasoning, Tony Chachere's original since my husband brought it home from New Orleans recently. I read reviews and also added 4 cloves of garlic since I doubled, and a 12 ounce bag of jumbo cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp. I threw in uncooked unpeeled potatoes and the frozen shrimp and frozen corn and simmered it for 30 minutes and it was just perfect. This one's a keeper!
