“Stir in kielbasa and remaining ingredients”. Pretty sure the phrase ‘remaining ingredients’ includes the chicken stock?
The instruction omit or ignored the chicken stock. I thought someone reviewed these recipes...
Since we've been having such cold weather, I thought I'd try this soup. The southwest flavor of this hearty soup was warm and comforting. I used smoked sausage from the farmer's market and I did not have crushed tomatoes so I used a 15.5 ounce jar of mild salsa instead. Next time I make it I want to try it with regular ground meat and maybe cut back on the cumin a bit. Also, it is one of those soups that tastes better "the day after" ... and it freezes well. All in all ...... this is a delicious and warming soup .... made thick and hearty with the barley. 5 stars for sure.
I used cooked ground turkey in stead of the sausage.
