Craving something warm on this chilly fall afternoon? Try out this healthy, easy-to-make corn and sausage chowder recipe:
Slow Cooker Corn and Sausage Chowder
1 pound of chicken or turkey sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 oz) package of frozen corn
3 red skinned or new potatoes, chopped (you don't need to peel these types of potatoes)
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk (I used 1% or 2%)
Salt and Pepper
In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your sausage until it's cooked through and crumbly.
In your slow cooker, layer your cooked sausage, onion, corn, potatoes and stock. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 hours.
Right before you're ready to serve your soup, stir in your milk and let it sit about 5 minutes or so.
Ladle soup into bowls and enjoy!
