CAJUN CORN SOUP
If you're giving Dad a big party, this is sure to be a success, and summer is the perfect time of the year to use some fresh corn instead of frozen. I found this in Taste Of Home Magazine, submitted by Sue Fontenot of Kinder, Louisiana.
Serves: 12
1 cup chopped Onion
1 cup chopped Green Pepper
6 Green Onions -- thinly sliced
2 cloves Garlic -- minced
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Flour
3 cups Water
1 can Stewed Tomatoes (14-oz.) with juice
2 cups chopped Tomatoes
1 can Tomato Paste (6-oz.)
2 packages frozen Corn (10 oz.each) -- thawed
3 cups cubed fully cooked Ham
1/2 pound fully cooked Garlic-flavored Sausage -- sliced
1 tablespoon Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne
Salt to taste
Tabasco Sauce to taste
In a large kettle, saute onion, green pepper, green onions and garlic in oil until tender. Add flour; cook and stir until smooth and bubbly. Add water, tomatoes and tomato paste; mix well. Stir in corn, ham sausage and seasonings; bring to a boil stirring frequently. Lower heat; simmer uncovered 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
