Smoked Beef Sausage and Potato Chowder

Bettie Clark


This is my daughter's recipe. My three precious grandchildren love this soup. In fact, she doubles the recipe to feed her family of five. That's how much they like it.

The original recipe calls for a pound of sausage, I prefer less meat, so I only use half a package.

I also add red pepper flakes if the grand babies are not over.
