This recipe was such a brilliant find...it's got an amazing flavor and is delightfully low in fat and calories.
Begin by chopping up a green pepper and an onion.
Saute the pepper and onion in about a tablespoon of oil until they are tender. Use a big stockpot...this recipe makes a lot!
Now add some kielbasa, pinto beans, great northern beans, stewed tomatoes, Rotel, tomato sauce, garlic powder, and pepper. Just dump it all in at once!
Bring everything to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer until it's heated through.
This works well over rice or just served by itself with a salad and fresh bread. It's delicious!
