Get Yo Soup On! - Jalepeno, Corn & Sausage Soup

For the record this soup was really supposed to be Chipotle, Chrizo and Corn Soup. But one cannot find Chrizo or Chipotle peppers on Sunday afternoons in Indianapolis to save ones life.  Note to self:  Buy ingredients for weird recipes on Saturdays.    
Anyhow despite that I had to improvise for almost 1/2 this recipe it turned out good and we had enough leftover for lunches. 
Ingredients:
2 onions chopped into large pieces
16 oz frozen corn
1 lb sausage  - I used skinless smoked sausage
4-6 jalapenos seeded and chopped (not I might even use 8 next time to spice it up)
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups of milk
2 Tbls cilantro
1 tsp chili pepper flakes
1 Tbls Olive Oil (FYI I used spicy chipotle oil) 
2 garlic cloves chopped
Directions: 
1. Heat oil and onions over medium heat in large pot for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.  
2. Toss in corn frozen and cover cook for 3 minutes
3. Mix in garlic, peppers and chili flakes.
4. Add in 1 cup of milk, broth bring to boil and then reduce heat and cover for 15-20 minutes.
5. Meanwhile:  Cut cilantro and set aside and slice the sausage and in a skillet cook sausage until hot and browned on both sides.
6. Add sausage, cilantro and remaining milk and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. 
7. Serve and eat.
Surprisingly despite the fact I had to substitute a ton of things in this soup it was good, Jono liked the bread the best - he gobbled up 4 pieces.  I would still like to try the other version though.
