  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" dice.

    Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes.

    While potatoes microwave, trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Start the Chowder

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add Italian sausage, white portions of green onions, potato, and corn to hot pot.

    Break up meat until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Chowder

    Add flour to hot pot and stir until no dry flour remains in pot.

    Stir in 11/2 cups water, chicken base, half the sour cream (reserve remaining for crema), and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer, stirring often.

    Once simmering, stir until chowder is smooth and potatoes are tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While chowder cooks, make crema.

  4. 4

    Make Crema and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, combine remaining sour cream and pesto.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chowder with crema, green portions of green onions (to taste), and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
