Kay Nichols Wellsburg, West Virginia Warm your body and spirit with this comforting chowder. I love sausage and sweet corn, so I put them together, and voila! This is a great soup to serve on a chilly day, along with piping hot homemade biscuits.

"Love this chowder recipe. It doesn't take long to make, reheats easily the next day and my husband LOVES it! Come to think of it...I LOVE it too. I usually add a little more onion to the recipe...but that's the only change I've made."

"This recipe was super easy to put together. I omitted the corn and added some cheddar cheese and Italian cheese blend, served with a side of cheesy breadsticks, it was a hit with my entire family!"

"Used mild Italian sausage, added 1/2 tsp. Chipotle pepper and 1/2 cup of Tex-Mex Shredded Cheese at the end. Quite tasty! I will also try this with Smoked Sausage to see how it compares. We had cheese croissants with the chowder and they were a perfect compliment. Thanks for the recipe!"

"This is SO good and great on a cold night. My husband was away for a few days and I served this to him when he got home and he said "now I feel like I'm home!" I used canned potatoes so it came together even more quickly. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks Kay!"

"I've made this recipe for the last couple of years and am always asked to share it!! I add a little carrots and sliced mushrooms and substitue fat free half-in-half for half the milk. My family loves it and it's become my signature soup among friends!"
