Sausage, Corn, and Red Rice Chowder

Brrr! It’s freezing cold outside in our part of Texas this week — perfect weather for this Sausage, Corn, and Red Rice Chowder.

Our daughter Rebekah came up with the following recipe one cold Saturday several years go. At the time, we hadn’t made our weekly run to the grocery store, so she just threw together what she could find on hand.

The results were so delicious that we added the recipe to our family favorites and have been enjoying it ever since. Especially during cold snaps like the one we’re in now.

The following proportions will make about 12 servings.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 cup roughly chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 package ground sausage, browned
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 packages of brown and red rice with chia kale (we use Seeds of Change brand from Sam’s)

  1. This sounds so good! I’m going to try making it tonight! I don’t have the rice blend you recommended on-hand, but I do have some precooked brown rice in the freezer. I think that will be an ok substitute.
