Kielbasa Corn Chowder

Life has been pretty crazy lately (in a good way)! I start a new job tomorrow, so I spent today doing some serious food prep since I have no idea what the week will hold! I decided to make a big batch of soup I could easily re-heat for hassle-free dinners the next couple days... 

 

I created a recipe for this colorful, delicious Kielbasa Corn Chowder from our 'go to' Slow Cooker Corn Chowder recipe.


I have to pat myself on the back for this one... this soup recipe turned out amazing!!!! The smokey flavors of the sausage really cuts through the sweetness of the corn and red bell pepper, the little bit of crushed red pepper flakes kicks up the heat a notch, and since the soup is packed with hearty veggies, it's very filling and satisfying! Yum.

Kielbasa Corn Chowder
based on a recipe from tasteofhome.com

Ingredients:
  • 2-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, fat-free
  • 15 oz. turkey kielbasa sausage, cubed
  • 2-3/4 cups frozen corn
  • 6-7 small red potatoes, cubed
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 10 baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon butter (or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
In a large slow cooker or crockpot, combine all ingredients.


Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Enjoy!!!!



This Kielbasa Corn Chowder is one of my new favorites... it's easy to make, full of flavor, and a great soup for any time of year! And since it's a slow cooker recipe you can just prep your soup and walk away from the kitchen, having a one-dish meal is great for those busy days (or weeks)!
