Made this using a 7-bean soup mix (dried beans). Soaked them all night in slightly salted water, then drained the next morning. Did not use the green peppers or zucchini as didn't have on hand. I browned the onion, sausage and garlic in a little olive oil and added it to the crock pot scraping all the goodies from the pan into the post. I then added the beans and cooked for about 1 hour on high setting. Finally added the remaining ingredients and set the temp to low. Let it cook for about 8 hours - served with jalepeno corn bread - delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
I had to make one change, I used beef stock paste vs chicken bouillon granules because my son is allergic to chicken/products. It was very good. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
Home Run!!! I added a can of tomato sauce and used turkey kielbasa. I also sauteed the onion, garlic and kielbasa in butter-flavored spray, then dumped it along with everything else in the crockpot and let it cook all day. Excellent recipe with a unique flavor from the kielbasa. Will be making again.
