Corn and Kielbasa Chowder

I took another one from Rachael Ray Magazine this time.  I’ve made this before, and it’s one of our favorites so I couldn’t help but throw it in the rotation this week.  After all, it was on the suggested recipes of the week on her website.

I just cant’ say enough about this soup … it’s creamy … it’s sweet … it’s got kielbasa in it … how can you go wrong?  I’ll definitely make this one again and again.

I’ve got the recipe below with my own edits as to what I changed, but give the original a try if you want!

What do you need?

8 ounces kielbasa, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
2 onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
One 14.5-ounce can chicken broth
1 large baking potato (about 12 ounces), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup half-and-half
One 1-pound bag frozen corn, thawed
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh dill, for garnish

Serves 4

Now what?

Heat a deep skillet or a wide 4- to 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the kielbasa and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Add the onions and butter to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Add the broth and potato and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer until the potato is tender, about 10 minutes. Add the half-and-half and corn and cook, stirring, until heated through.


Using a blender or food processor, puree 1 cup chowder until smooth. Stir the puree back into the chowder along with the browned kielbasa and season to taste with salt and pepper. ** I actually just used a stick blender to lightly puree it with still leaving some chunks. ** Top with the dill.


How did yours turn out??

Until the next time…
