  • In a large soup pot brown sausage. Once good and brown remove and set aside.
  • In the same pot use the drippings from the sausage and add the onions , bell pepper , celery and garlic. Stirring every so often cook until the veggies are soft . If you don't have enough drippings from the sausage you can add a little water during the cooking process.
  • Once the veggies are soft add the stick of butter and allow it to melt.
  • Once the butter is melted sprinkle in the flour and stir until the flour is absorbed . Cook for about 3-4 minutes , stirring with a spatula .
  • Slowly add chicken broth stirring while you add it, the add the water.
  • Add the browned sausage, diced tomatoes , rotel tomatoes , tomato paste, garlic powder, onion powder , and your choice of Cajun or creole seasoning . Bring to a boil and make sure the tomato paste has dissolved .
  • Turn down to a simmer then place the lid on top and simmer for about 45 minutes.
  • After 45 Minutes add the frozen corn and cream style corn. Put the lid back on for about 15 minutes.
  • Check to see if you need salt or pepper


I use a good smoked sausage for this recipe . If you have access to an andouille sausage it is a good choice as well. 
Other meats can be added to this like Tasso ,  pork , beef , shrimp or even ham. 
I use Tony's Chacheres and it has plenty of salt but if you use a different brand you may need to add salt .
