Crock Pot Kielbasa Soup

Kielbasa Soup is one of our favorite fall/winter meals.  Growing up in a Polish neighborhood, I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to Kielbasa.  While the pre-packaged links at the grocery store will do fine for some recipes, we both prefer the flavor that the double-smoked kielbasa that we get from our local Polish Market gives this hearty soup. 



Crock Pot Kielbasa Soup

Ingredients:
  • 16 oz. double smoked kielbasa, sliced in half lengthwise, then cut in half
  • 58 oz. homemade Chicken Stock
  • 15 oz. can pinto or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 medium celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 14.5 can diced fire-roasted tomatoes with liquid
  • cooked rice
Directions:
  • Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours, or until beans are tender. 
  • Ladle into bowls, adding rice if desired. 
  • Shredded cabbage would be a wonderful addition to this soup as well. 

Notes:

I'll be linking this post to the following blog carnivals and linky parties:
