Frugal Recipe: Kielbasa Skillet

This recipe was pieced together from several others found in various magazines. We have been making it for several years now and are still occasionally tweaking the ingredients. One of the original recipes called for great northern beans to be added, which my family wouldn’t eat, so I haven’t tried that version. Here is the basic recipe.


One rope (16 oz) of cooked kielbasa, sliced

4 medium sized potatoes, cubed or sliced

2 stalks celery, sliced

1 medium onion, sliced

1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes, or dice a couple of fresh tomatoes

1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies

2 cups water

Spice to taste. We have used, in various combinations, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning, thyme, garlic, rosemary leaf, ground mustard, cumin and crushed red peppers.


Over medium heat in an electric skillet or on the stove top add all of the ingredients and simmer until done, usually about 20 to 30 minutes. Add desired spices during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve with mixed vegetables as a side.
