Hearty Corn Chowder

Monday nights are Crock Pot nights since Joe and I have FPU.  This week I made Hearty Corn Chowder which was sooo good and sooo easy.

Hearty Corn Chowder

Ingredients:
1 box or half a family-size bag of frozen corn (use the whole bag if you are making this for more than 4 people)
1/2 box or 1/4 family-size bag frozen peas
1 tub or block of low-fat cream cheese (the original recipe called for chive cream cheese but I couldn’t find low fat chive cream cheese so I went with regular)
2 cups milk (I used soy milk)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 log crumbled sausage, cooked and drained (I used spicy sausage but turkey sausage would be a healthier choice)

Instructions:
1. Dump (technical term) the corn, peas and milk in crock pot and set crock pot on low.
2. Scoop the cream cheese into crock pot, melt in the microwave a little if you need to.
3. Brown and drain the sausage and add to the mix.
4. When the soup is warmed up a bit, add shredded cheddar and mix to combine.
Serve with warm crusty bread!
