Very salty for our tastes (because of the ham, sausage and Cajun seasoning). We found that this made more like 10-12 servings. The green pepper was nearly nonexistent after all of that cooking. I would put the pepper in during the last half-hour of cooking if you're going to try this recipe.
This was very good. The cajun seasoning gave it a really different flavor. I took a few liberties with the ingredient list (Ok, I messed with it) as I made it during our snowstorm yesterday (16 inches) and had to compromise on a few items that I lacked. I did not use green pepper or sweet potato and had to toss in some leftover sausage in place of the andouille. Also added a can of diced tomatoes and about a cup of tomato juice. Voila! It worked fine and was a hit. Will make again with the andouille and sweet potato. Thanks for a good and easy soup, JanetC-KY!
We thoroughly enjoyed this hearty, spicy soup! It's a nice change from the traditional bean soups you find. We don't have a crock pot, so we made it on the stove and adjusted the cook times. Also, we couldn't find andouille sausage, so we substituted with a portugese smoked chorizo instead. We served it with some crusty bread - we'll be sure to make this again!
