"This hearty slow cooker dinner will fill your kitchen with a delicious aroma and isn't that same old chicken and cream-of-something slow cooker meal. Serve it with a crisp green salad and a loaf of crunchy bread for a stick-to-your-ribs dinner. This tastes better the longer it cooks, so letting it cook on Low for an entire work day will only improve the taste." — janet7th

pork sausage links
1 1/2 cups
1 (14.5 ounce) can
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
carrots, cut in chunks
1 (14 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 ounce) can
kidney beans, rinsed and drained
The broth was tasty. So much so, that I would want to double it. Adding rotini pasta might be tasty. Having the sausages cut to 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch pieces to too big. Instead, try three quarters of an inch. Siracha in place of Tabasco adds a better quality spice.
This was very good. The only reason why I gave it 4 is because I added stuff to it. I added a can of white beans and jar of green chili's. We also said you could easily add peppers of any kind to it to add more flavor, but it was VERY good and a big hit!
I really liked this recipe! I changed a few ingredients just because I didn't have them. I was out of garbanzo beans, so I used great northern beans instead and omitted the tomato paste because I didn't have that either. I used hot smoked sausage, threw in a dash of garlic, some cayenne and some chilies for extra spice as well as 2 cups of beef stock. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. At the last minute I decided to throw in some rotini, so I'm glad I used extra broth. I thought this was soooooo tasty, but my boyfriend said it was "missing something". Next time I'll try it with the garbanzo beans, I think they would've been better. Either way, I loved it. This is a very flexible recipe and even though it doesn't look like a lot of food, it's very filling. :)
I made a few changes to the recipe. I couldn't find pork sausage links so I ended up chopping up some kielbasa (which tasted fabulous). After I combined all ingrediants, I simmered on the stove instead of the crockpot and it turned out FABULOUS! I accidently omitted the tomato puree, but we couldn't tell the difference. I added two cups of beef stock since I cooked it on the stove to prevent it from being too thick. I will make this again. It was super easy and quick and my family LOVED it!
A great easy recipe for a cold winter night ~ I did use Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles in place of the sausage slices. I used fire roasted chopped tomatoes and increased the stock to 2 cups. I also added 1/2 cup of anellini pasta uncooked to the crockpot for the last two hours of cooking. A nice filling dinner for a hungry family ~ thank you for sharing.
I made a few changes but this is an awesome recipe. I used smoke onion and pepper sausage. Instead of garbanzo beans, I used cannelloni beans. I didn't add in the carrots, tomato puree or the hot pepper sauce. It was so tasty and it's a hit every time I serve it.
