 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 lb Bacon; diced
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 1 Carrot; chopped
  • 1 Rib celery; chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic; minced
  • 1/4 c Each green and red bell
  • -pepper, chopped
  • 1 Jalapeno pepper; seeded and
  • -chopped
  • 3 sm Potatoes; peeled and diced
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 c Beer
  • 1 "dry-style" smoked sausage
  • -(about 6 " long, chopped
  • 2 cn (about 17 oz. each)
  • -cream-style corn *
  • 1 c Half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c Chopped fresh parsley
  • Grated cheddar cheese


Cook bacon in 4-qt. pan over medium heat until mostly cooked. Set aside
about 2 Tbs. bacon bits for garnish. Drain off and discard drippings, all
but 2 Tbs. Add onion and vegetables to pan with bacon and reserved
drippings; cook, stirring often, until onion is soft (about 5 minutes). Add
potatoes, water, and beer, and cook about 15 minutes, or just until potato
is tender when pierced. Add sausage and corn; let come to a simmer, then
turn off heat and let sit until cool enough to put in fridge. Refrigerate
until about a half hour before you are ready to serve it. Reheat gently,
stirring often. When soup is hot, add half-and-half and let come to a bare
simmer; do not boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Optional: Garnish with parsley, grated cheese and additional bacon bits.
Makes 6 to 8 servings. Serve with homemade bread, and eat by candlelight.

* Note: Try to find creamed corn that does not have added sugar. (Seems
like most canned creamed corn has sugar in it nowadays, so if you can't
find it without, don't worry about it. I usually add just a squeeze of
fresh lemon juice (1 to 2 tsp.) to cut the sweetness.)
