Spicy Kielbasa Soup Recipe

Red pepper flakes bring a little zip to this hearty soup that's full of good-for-you ingredients. "Should you have any left over, this soup is great reheated, after flavors have had time to blend," writes Carol Custer of Clifton Park, New York. "I like to serve steaming bowls of it with rye bread."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2013

I increased to 3 celery ribs, 2 carrots, and one pound of smoked turkey kielbasa and I used low sodium tomatoes and beans; a very warming soup on a cold evening after working all day!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2013

I was excited about this soup but after making it I did not like it. Not enough meat in the soup. My husband even refused to try it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 9, 2013

I accidentally used diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of stewed tomatoes. Substituted 3 red potatoes for pepper & zucchini. It was quite tasty.

+ 2/3 cup barely last hour of cooking.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2011

I found this recipe on a search to use up a bit of leftover kielbasa, and picked it because the other ingredients were readily on hand. I was incredibly surprised at how fantastic it turned out! This is a restaurant-quality soup, hearty and delicious.
