Recipe by Rai
I decided that I needed to share this recipe after two people came into our break room tonight to see what I was eating that smelled so good. The recipe is adopted from a woman I work with, she calls it "Party Kielbasa". I like using turkey smoked sausage, but it works well with either smoked sausage or kielbasa. I brown the sausage in a frying pan with the Liquid Smoke before I bake it, because I like it to be a little bit crunchy on the outside, but you can just throw it all together without browning it, it tastes good either way. I serve it over rice because it soaks up the juice nicely. It could probably be a crockpot recipe in the summer, but I like baking it in the winter.

Great recipe, so easy and quick to put together. Tonight will be our 2nd time making it, even our fussiest ones enjoyed it. My husband loves things to be spicy so I did add some cayenne pepper to spice it up some more. Thank you.
- 12 ounces chili sauce (I use Heinz.)
- 20 ounces crushed pineapple with juice, undrained
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 bell peppers, cut into bite size pieces (I use yellow or red and green, to make it colorful)
- 1 lb smoked sausage or 1 lb kielbasa, cut into bite size pieces
- 5 -10 drops liquid smoke (I use it if I think my smoked sausage isn't smokey enough.) (optional)
