A Winter Recipe: Corn Cowder

I don't really share a lot of recipes here, but this is one of those soups that literally everyone asks about and it is SO easy! It's a go to when taking food to families welcoming new babies, or who are under the weather! And seeing as how our weather has finally turned cold in Mississippi, it's a good one for this time of year!

Sausage and Corn Chowder:
1 lb of ground italian sausage ( or really any kind of your choosing)
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 onion
1 jar of pimentos
1 can of creamed corn
1 can of regular corn
1/4 cup of flour
milk ( to desired consistency)

1. dice the onion and bell pepper
2. brown sausage with onion and bell pepper
3. drain any grease and return meat and peppers to pan
4. add 1/4 flour and stir until sausage is coated
5. add corn, pimentos and milk ( usually about 3 cups I think)
6. season with salt, pepper- to taste!
              * I also sometimes add a few red pepper flakes to the sausage when cooking it to give a little extra kick!

the longer it cooked the more the flour thickens it.. but it can be ready in about an 45 minutes. I usually double the recipe because we eat it leftover for days.
