Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage & Corn Soup, an easy crockpot corn soup recipe that is ready in no time. Not much prep needed, and this corn soup makes an easy family friendly dinner! Use your favorite sausage or ground meat, or omit the sausage entirely for a vegetarian corn soup.
My husband and I have both been sick with bad colds this week. So I got out my slow cooker and made this quick soup. It’s nothing fancy but nothing wrong with an easy crockpot corn soup for comfort food when you don’t feel well.
We had some spicy Italian sausage in the fridge and since we both had colds the spicy sausage was kind of nice if I do say so myself. You could certainly use a mild sausage or ground meat in this corn soup recipe. Just be sure to cook the sausage or ground meat before adding it to your slow cooker.
You could also use precooked chopped chicken like a rotisserie chicken. You could even omit the meat entirely for a vegetarian corn soup. If you don’t use a spicy meat, I’d suggest adding some of your favorite herbs or spices to give the soup a little more flavor.
When the soup is done, add some of your favorite toppings like shredded cheese, green onion, and crushed crackers (we used pita chips) and you have yourself an easy Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage & Corn Soup! Hope you enjoy this super easy slow cooker corn soup recipe!
