Easy Chunky Corn Chowder
- 1/2 cup onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup celery, chopped
- 1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed or ground
- 2 cans (14 oz) cream style corn
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks about 4
- 1 can (14 oz) corn
- 1 cup milk
- 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, drained (optional)
In a large pot, over medium low heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onions and celery and cook until tender. Do not brown.
In the meantime, using a large skillet, over medium heat, cook sausage. You have two options. You can thinly slice sausage and brown on both sides or break up meat and cook until brown. Regardless, reduce heat on your skillet to low to keep your sausage warm.
Now you have to add these ingredients to the large pot with the celery and onions in it. Add cans of cream style corn, salt, pepper, potatoes and chicken broth. Simmer, covered, until potatoes are fork tender, around 20 minutes.
Add corn, milk or cream, tomatoes (if using) and then sausage. Heat, but do not boil. Serve with crackers or a crusty bread. Enjoy!
