Our weather has been cold and rainy for the last several days. It was the perfect weather to cook up a batch of spicy kielbasa soup. The red pepper flakes give it a little zip. If you have any leftovers don’t worry this spicy kielbasa soup is great reheated, after the flavors have had a chance to blend. I served this soup with some bread and a salad and it was the perfect rainy day dinner.spicy kielbasa soup

This spicy kielbasa soup recipe is even better the next day when the flavors have blended a bit. I’m sure it would be one of those soups you could freeze as well. We enjoyed it for diner one night and lunch the next day and there were no other leftovers!spicy kielbasa soup
