Recipe by kennedyfish

A healthy, hearty, crockpot-friendly recipe for a tasty black bean & turkey polska kielbasa combination. Serve alone or over brown rice for a complete protein. Easy on the waistline & checkbook. My kids like it -I go easy on the cayenne pepper for them. From Once-A-Month Cooking cookbook.

I loved this! What a hearty delicious meal. I couldn't find turkey polish sausage, so I just used turkey brats. Cooked them whole (below all other ingredients) for about two hours and then sliced them and added them back in. I used Heineken Light instead of water and went ahead and added the whole bottle. I will definitely be making this again (maybe with a jalepeno b/c we love the heat!) Thanks!
