This is a great chowder recipe. Easy to make and tastes so good. It is colorful with the red and green peppers and the corn. My family loves this recipe and I hope you do to. I got the recipe about 50 years ago in the local newspaper. The newspaper has since gone out of business. But the Chowder lives on! 🙂
Below is the printable recipe!
- 1 pound Sausage (hot or mild)
- 1 cup diced onions
- 1/2 cup diced red bell peppers
- 1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 4 cups milk
- 1 can sweet cream style corn (15 oz)
- 1 can of whole corn (I use frozen corn)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 3 teaspoons sliced green scallions to the top (optional)
- Over medium-high heat, brown and crumble sausage in dutch oven or heavy pot.
- While sausage begins to brown, add onions and red and green peppers and cook until tender and sausage is no longer pink.
- Drain excess grease from pan.
- Add flour, stir into mixture and cook for 5-6 minutes.
- Add milk and combine with sausage/flour mixture.
- Add cream corn and whole corn and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the chowder thickens.
- Add garlic powder, salt and pepper.
- Garnish with scallions on top in soup bowl.
- This recipe came from a winning entry in the local newspaper 50 years ago (It has since gone out of business)
- I was not able to find the recipe originator and I have changed a few ingredients over the years. This is a hearty soup...we used to have card parties and the host was responsible for the soup. I served this and received raves....I still do, so it must be a winner. Plus, it is colorful! My family says it is a winner.!
