You can make ahead and freeze both of these. These recipes are for our family of 6 with about 1 or 2 servings left over (we like leftovers for lunch….), so adjust as necessary! Also feel free to add, subtract, etc and make it your own…I did!!

We served it up with cucumbers, tomatoes, baby carrotts and peppers. No complaints from this crew!
2 packages of Kielbasa, chopped and browned in pan.
2 cans (15 oz) chopped, diced tomatoes
1 can chili with beans
1 can corn (or since we ate the corn earlier this week….oops….we used pinto beans)
Mix and simmer.
Instead of serving over rice, I used millet. Aside from the question of “What IS this?”. It was eaten and enjoyed. A good alternative to rice 😉
