Directions

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage, onion, and celery in the hot Dutch oven until sausage is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Mix potatoes, chicken broth, salt, and pepper into sausage mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes. Add whole kernel corn, cream-style corn, evaporated milk, paprika, and cayenne pepper; simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 more minutes.

My husband and I really enjoyed this chowder! I used Jimmy Dean Hot breakfast sausage, so I didn't add the cayenne pepper (yes, I'm a wuss). My husband added the cayenne to his bowl at the table (he's not a wuss). I used evaporated skim milk because it's what I had and this still turned out great. I'm sure the regular evaporated milk or even half-and-half or whipping cream would have made it thicker and more chowder-like.

This is quite delicious and VERY filling. I used ground mild Italian sausage and, since I didn't have any evaporated milk, omitted that. Don't think we missed out on anything. Maybe next time I'll pair this with some warm onion rolls. Perfect soup for a windy, chilly evening. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks!

My wife makes this for the family on cold days or just that "curl up on the couch with a movie" kinda day. I do add additional cayenne pepper since she makes it for the kids as well. This is one of our favorites.
