This Cheesy Sausage Soup is packed full of all of my favorite foods! Sausage, diced tomatoes and green chiles, chicken broth, corn, cheese, potatoes and sour cream. OMG! SO good! I made this for lunch and we both went back for seconds. Seriously delicious! This recipe makes a good bit of soup, so we ate this for lunch again the next day. Just as good!
I used a package of Tennessee Pride hot sausage in the soup. Feel free to use your favorite brand of breakfast sausage. If you aren't a fan of sausage, you could substitute ground beef in this recipe. I think it would be fine. I prefer sausage, so that is what I use in this recipe. We served the soup with some pretzel bread from Trader Joe's. It was a fantastic easy weeknight meal!
