Easy Sausage & Corn Chowder Recipe With Charred Corn & Jalapeno

Pleasantly surprised was my family's reaction to this corn and sausage chowder recipe. As a soup lover, they tend to get tired of how many times a month that soup is on the menu. But there were no complaints at all after their first taste of this easy creamy sausage and corn chowder.

The soup is made with corn (you can use fresh, frozen or even canned in a pinch), onion, celery, gold potatoes, chicken broth, jalapeno, Italian sausage and cream. For a richer chowder, use heavy cream or half and half; for a lighter chowder use milk or even nut milk.

Serve this quick and easy chowder with hot bread and a salad for lunch or dinner. Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When reheating, add a splash of cream to loosen the chowder. If you don't like jalapenos, try using a poblano or even bell pepper.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (divided)
  • 2 cups corn (divided)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 4 cups butter gold potatoes, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 pound bulk spicy, mild or regular Italian sausage 
  • 1 cup heavy cream, half and half or milk

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup of the corn and cook, stirring often, until it chars and starts turning golden brown. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. 
  2. Heat the other 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onion, celery and jalapeno, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. 
  3. Add the potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. 
  4. While the soup simmers, add the sausage to another skillet. Cook, breaking up into pieces, until cooked through. 
  5. Add the sausage and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of corn to the soup. Stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper. Heat until warmed through. Serve with charred corn on top and extra chopped jalapeno, if desired.

Corn and sausage recipe is there a way that you could use a mile instead of a spicy and also other meat alternatives to this I found it The fresh sausages are great spicy is a little much I could probably use a mild maybe a jalapeno if you have any tips I'd appreciate it thanks a lot
Is there any fish stews you can recommend what kind of fish will be in a good stew cuz you know some fish break apart they don't get the essence of the fish something I've seen on like Ming si who's made some wonderful dishes and Lydia bastianich someone that makes a lot of European dishes stews and Giada something that could be benefited vegetable base and fish sauce or oyster sauce I'd appreciate it thanks a lot
