sweet potato & sausage soup

from vanillasugarblog.com

1-2 boxes of Trader Joe's sweet potato bisque

12 ounces (more or less) of cooked kielbasa, chopped

1 jar of roasted red peppers, chopped

1 medium sweet onions

1/2 - 3/4 cup diced drained tomatoes or leftover plain salsa

dashes of hot sauce

olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

cook notes:

the beauty of this recipe is that you don't have to follow it to a tee.

you can add in or take out what you don't like.

I just want to show you how easy it is to get creative with leftovers.

I gave the veggies, onions and chopped sausage a quick stir fry to get them all browned.

Then put them in a crockpot with a bit of olive oil. Got those heated through.

Then added in the sweet potato bisque, some chopped or diced tomatoes, and the chopped

red peppers.

Heat on low for a few or couple hours.

Taste test to see if you want to add hot sauce and salt & pepper.

Feel free to add in anything else like: leftover rice/pasta, leftover veggies, kale, corn, etc...(endless list).

Use hamburg or ham or shrimp if you don't like sausage.

I left this in the crockpot for about 5 hours on low, and it was fine.

I would NOT use the high setting for this.
