"This unusual sounding soup is delicious. Even if you are not crazy about collards, you'll enjoy this, my family loves it!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (16 ounce) packages
kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
potatoes, peeled and diced
frozen, chopped collard greens, thawed
3 (14.5 ounce) cans
great Northern beans
green bell pepper, diced
salt and pepper to taste
Made this in the crock pot and it turned out wonderful and thick. Used fresh (instead of frozen) collard greens that I needed to use up. Kept everything pretty much the same as called for and it was wonderful. Don't really need too much salt or pepper. The main ingredients provide enough natural seasoning and taste.
would hsve been better without the potatoes and bacon.
Great recipe! Everyone in the family loved it. Makes a big pot of thick, hearty soup/stew. If too thick for your liking add an extra cup of water. Not much tweaking needed...only added an extra clove of garlic. Bacon was too soft, so next time I'll cook the bacon until crisp, remove from pan and then saute the onion, green pepper and garlic. Don't dice the potatoes too small or they'll break apart when cooked. Would also be good with black-eyed peas. Definitely a great tasting soup!
This definitely is a hearty soup. A great way to use collard greens. It was a bit on the thick side, an extra cup of water with 1 tsp. of beef granules made it perfect, or I should say to our liking. We shall make this dish again during the winter months. Thanks for sharing.
Loved the heartiness of this. Made a pot of it to take into work for a pot luck and it went quick, no leftovers to take home. I like my food a little on the spicy side so I added about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and cumin while sautéing the onion and bell pepper and also added some beef granules to another batch for added flavor. This recipe is great and easy to make and adjust to your taste buds and is also a winner for the crock pot.
Cooked this soup just as the recipe states and it was great!! I'm even from the South and it passed our Southern taste buds.
This was very good! Instead of water, I used reduced-sodium/fat free chicken broth, and instead of regular smoked sausage, I used turkey smoked sausage. I didn't have any bacon, so I left that out. Instead of frozen collard greens, I used about 12-13 oz of fresh chopped collards. I put it in the crockpot on high for 2 1/2 hours but that wasn't long enough, so I put it on the stove for another 30 minutes and it was perfect.
Delicious soup and a great way to use collard greens! Came out great in the crockpot! Fried 4 slices of bacon, onion and garlic, drained and put in bottom of crockpot. In same pan (minus the bacon fat!) i sliced up one pound of lite kielbasa, put cut and washed collard greens on top and let it cook down a few minutes. Added that to crockpot. To the crockpot I added 2 cut up potatoes, poured 1 container chicken broth over all of it, and cooked on low for 6 hours. Unbelievably delicious and even better the next day. Next time I would cut potatoes a little smaller, and maybe add carrots. You don't need any salt if you make it in the crockpot, the kielbasa and bacon are salty enough.
