After a full day of teaching and coaching, I'm often too tired to spend a lot of time preparing dinner. So I rely on this thick, chunky blend that I can have on the table in 30 minutes. The whole family enjoys the wonderful flavor of the smoked sausage. -Jennifer LeFevre, Hesston, Kansas

"Delicious! I always double this recipe, but not the amount of potatoes. I add 1 (14.75 oz.) can creamed corn to the soup when I add the milk and cheese.....I really like the creaminess it adds. I also use turkey kielbasa rather than regular kielbasa. This soup has become a favorite at our house."

"Like many of you, I love soups. But, I'm very much a novice cook. I'm a grandpa, and a retired Soldier, not a chef. I decided to make this soup when my church group was having a chili and soup pot-luck dinner; I wanted something with sausage in it.

I made one and a half times the recipe and substituted garlic that I chopped up myself, so obviously it took longer time to prepare than suggested here. I think the real prep time is closer to an hour, for a newby like me, anyway.
The soup was terrific. I received many compliments. This will be a fall and winter staple for me, simply due to the simplicity of preparation and delicious taste."

"This is very tasty and easy to make; however, it is a bit peppery for me and my family so the next time I make it I'll reduce the amount by half. A plus about this recipe is that I was able to serve the soup without the meat for my vegetarian daughter and with the meat for the rest of the family."
