Mexican Chorizo and Corn Soup

Mexican Chorizo and Corn Soup

This filling soup is great when you need to warm up on a blustery day! If you want a chowder consistency, use a potato masher to break down some of the spuds. —Laura Davis, Chincoteague Island, Virginia


¾ lbs. Jones No Sugar Pork Sausage Roll or ground mexican chorizo sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
