Barely anything in the refrigerator can make some interesting dinners.

I looked online for Smoked Sausage & Corn Chowder and found a few recipies I thought would help concoct something worth eating.  I based my recipe soley on what I had in the refrigerator and cupboard that needed to be used. Everything I used was cooked prior to placement in the pot. The only thing that I cooked was the onion, garlic, and corn.

1lb Smoked Sausage chopped in ¼" Cubes
1 Medium Onion Chopped (Saute this with the butter before adding it)
2 Cloves Garlic Minced (Saute this with the butter before adding it)
4 Tbsp Butter
4 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Ears Corn-on-the-Cob (Cut the corn from the cob after cooking it for three minutes wrapped in plastic in the microwave)
1½ Cups Milk (I used 2%)
1lb Diced Potatoes (Seasoned French Fries worked for me)
½ tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Salt to taste (I used about a tbsp of fresh ground Sea Salt)
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper

The Corn-on-the-Cob part of this recipe is important for texture. I might try adding celery next time. 

This was a super easy and fast. Basically, just warm up the stuff for a few minutes and chow down! The kids and wife loved it.
