This corn chowder soup is filled with sausage, corn, and potatoes! It is the kind of satisfying comfort everyone craves!
What Is Corn Chowder Soup?
A corn chowder soup is similar to other chowder recipes in that it has a milky soup base. It also has corn, potatoes, sausage, herbs, and cheese. Chowders are often thick, creamy, and quite rich. It is such a filling and satisfying soup!
I love chowders, but they can be a little heavy at times. Instead of using heavy creams, I like to keep my soups and chowders on the skinny by using evaporated milk and only stirring in a little less cheese than some other chowder soup recipes. The chowder will still taste creamy and luscious!

How To Make Corn Chowder Soup?
This recipe starts with Italian sausage that is cooked and crumbled. My vegetable base is a blend of onions and bell peppers. If you have fresh vegetables, that is awesome, but using frozen is perfectly acceptable and a total time saver. The soup is thickened with a little flour and chicken broth. Instead of cubed potatoes that you find in traditional chowders, I used bagged hash browned potatoes, again this is a huge time saver. Frozen corn, evaporated milk, and a little cheese finish off the recipe!
Can Corn Chowder Soup Be Frozen?
No, the milk and the potatoes will no reheat well, the milk could separate and the potatoes will get soggy, but I am going to bet that there won’t be any soup left over to freeze anyway!
