Okay! This is NOT MY RECIPE! A friend, who has now passed gave me this recipe years ago when I was a Firefighter! This is hearty, absolutely yummy! And super, super easy! It came from a recipe he had clipped from a magazine or the local newpaper, and it was from S&W brand canned Foods. I tweeked it to my liking and we have this regularly in our household because it's so hearty! Enjoy!
The number of servings will very, based on how much everyone likes it! This one is great a potlucks because is so tasty and filling!
Open you package of Kielbasa Sausage and cut into your preferred bite size. I like them fairly small so you can get a little of everything in each bite!
In a large pot sear the meat pieces so they have a good color to them. This is going to enhance the flavor of the dish, overall. Then lower your heat under the pot to a low simmer.
Line up your cans and jars, open them and have ready for dumping into the pot when the meat is done!
Once the meat has a nice searing on the bite sized pieces, start dumping all of the beans in! Juice and all! Again, DO NOT WASH OR DRAIN YOUR BEANS!!!
Once I have the beans in, I then add the whole kernel corn, juice and all and the two jars of Salsa! I give it a nice stir and then let is simmer for about 30 minutes while I set the table and make a salad or cornbread!
Give the pot a nice stir frequently, because the salsa will scorch easily if you don't keep the heat down, and don't keep it stirred.
As a caution to you! This soup stays very hot in the bowl, I would use a chowder or cream soup bowl so it can cool easier! I ladle the soup into each bowl, and have the shredded cheese and diced onions on the side as a condiment! Enjoy!
