Corn and Kielbasa Chowder

Heaven! Thank you Rachael Ray, I LOVED it! I kind of doubled it (see notes below) so I could serve it for lunch with a friend and for dinner that night too. Even Mike said it was good and he is not a soup fan...I think the sausage made it manly enough for him :-). Yum, Yum, Yum!!!

* 8 ounces kielbasa, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (used 16 oz)
* 2 onions, finely chopped
* 1 tablespoon butter
* One 14.5-ounce can chicken broth (used 2 cans)
* 1 large baking potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (used 2)
* 1 cup half-and-half (used 2)
* One 1-pound bag frozen corn, thawed
* Salt and pepper
* Chopped fresh dill, for garnish (didn't have...still good)

1. Heat a deep skillet or a wide 4- to 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the kielbasa and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
2. Add the onions and butter to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Add the broth and potato and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer until the potato is tender, about 10 minutes. Add the half-and-half and corn and cook, stirring, until heated through.
3. Using a blender or food processor, puree 1 cup chowder until smooth. Stir the puree back into the chowder along with the browned kielbasa and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with the dill.
