This combines the flavors of a chili dog in one bowl! I make it when I need a hot, hearty meal in a hurry. It's also great for football games. —Audra L. Duvall, Canoga Park, California

"It was easy and delicious. I had all the ingredients in my pantry except the olives. I don't think leaving them out affected the taste that much. I will definitely make it again."

"I am always looking for a new kielbasa recipe so I was pleased to find this one. I took the suggestion of one of the writers and sauteed the sausage with onions and garlic. instead of the two cans of tomatoes I also used one can of Rotel. I simmered on low for a couple of hours. I added the corn and olives after simmering. I also added about a teaspoon of corn starch to slightly thicken the sauce. I let it set in the fridge overnight to enhance the flavors. The next day it was delicious. I look forward to finding more new interesting recipes."
