Ingredients


2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 link Smoked sausage (can use chicken andouille or other spicy smoked sausage - chopped)
227 gm Ham, sliced, extra lean (5% fat) (chopped)
1 medium White onion (chopped - about 1 cup)
2 large stalk(s) Celery (chopped - about 1/2 cup)
1 medium pepper(s) Green bell pepper (chopped - about 3/4 cup)
2 clove(s) Garlic
1 can(s) (28oz) Diced tomatoes, canned (like fire roasted)
3 cup Water
3 cup Chicken broth (stock)
2 tsp Cajun spice/seasoning, Topco
454 gm Frozen yellow corn kernels

Instructions


Heat the olive oil in a skillet set over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, another minute.

Scrape the mixture into your slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, until the vegetables are tender.

Taste and add more salt and pepper as necessary.

Note:

Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 5 to 6 quart. (I used my new Instant Pot).

I use 1 tablespoon Better Than Bouillon and 3 cups of water to make the chicken broth. You can skip the initial cooking of the onion, celery and pepper if you like, but your soup may take longer to become done.
