  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage, onion, and celery in the hot Dutch oven until sausage is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Mix potatoes, chicken broth, salt, and pepper into sausage mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes. Add whole kernel corn, cream-style corn, evaporated milk, paprika, and cayenne pepper; simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 more minutes.

I used mild italian sausage; if using hot italian sausage I would probably eliminate the cayenne pepper.

Delicious! My husband loved it, and claimed it was a keeper! I used half n half instead of evaporated milk, because I had it on hand. Also added some parsley for color. I think next time I will...

Good base recipe to start with...

Will substitute another can of whole kernel corn for the creamed corn. The creamed corn was mushy.

Delicious. A bit too much sausage for me, but that is my own personal preference. Husband and grandchildren liked it.
