My husband and I really enjoyed this chowder! I used Jimmy Dean Hot breakfast sausage so I didn't add the cayenne pepper (yes I'm a wuss). My husband added the cayenne to his bowl at the table (he's not a wuss). I used evaporated skim milk because it's what I had and this still turned out great. I'm sure the regular evaporated milk or even half-and-half or whipping cream would have made it thicker and more chowder-like. Read More

This was a fabulous corn chowder. Instead of cans of corn, we used a 1lb package of frozen corn kernels and cut the kernels off of 4 ears of fresh corn to replace the creamed corn. We were all scraping our bowls for the last drop. Read More

This is quite delicious and VERY filling. I used ground mild Italian sausage and since I didn't have any evaporated milk omitted that. Don't think we missed out on anything. Maybe next time I'll pair this with some warm onion rolls. Perfect soup for a windy chilly evening. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks! Read More

This was delicious! I had a pound of frozen corn that I added with the potatoes. Then I skipped the canned corn but still added the creamed at the end. Served with cornbread. ( Lots of corn this meal.) Hubby went back for seconds. Read More

The spiciness was just right. I think next time I make it, I'll use shredded chicken breast to reduce the fat and overall calories. Read More

I made this exactly as written (except I maybe put too many potatoes in it) and it was FANTASTIC. I loved that it was super easy and the ingredients weren't hard to find. My wife loved it as well and it made so much we froze some for leftovers when we don't want to cook. Read More

My wife makes this for the family on cold days or just that "curl up on the couch with a movie" kinda day. I do add additional cayenne pepper since she makes it for the kids as well. This is one of our favorites. Read More
