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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound reduced-fat smoked turkey kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

"Absolute favorite! I have made it several different ways, due to missing ingredients, but I must say it's great no matter how I "fudge" the recipe."

MY REVIEW

"I loved this soup! Very hearty, but doesn't pack on the calories. It is high in sodium, so use low sodium when possible. I used a full pound of sausage, and it worked fine. Tasted better the next day when the flavors blended together."
