Monday nights are Crock Pot nights since Joe and I have FPU. This week I made Hearty Corn Chowder which was sooo good and sooo easy.
Hearty Corn Chowder
1 box or half a family-size bag of frozen corn (use the whole bag if you are making this for more than 4 people)
1/2 box or 1/4 family-size bag frozen peas
1 tub or block of low-fat cream cheese (the original recipe called for chive cream cheese but I couldn’t find low fat chive cream cheese so I went with regular)
2 cups milk (I used soy milk)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 log crumbled sausage, cooked and drained (I used spicy sausage but turkey sausage would be a healthier choice)
1. Dump (technical term) the corn, peas and milk in crock pot and set crock pot on low.
2. Scoop the cream cheese into crock pot, melt in the microwave a little if you need to.
3. Brown and drain the sausage and add to the mix.
4. When the soup is warmed up a bit, add shredded cheddar and mix to combine.
Serve with warm crusty bread!
