Pan fry garlic, and kielbasa until kielbasa is golden brown. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine all ingredients.
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until vegetables are tender.
**High Altitude - cook 6-8 hours.
Tip: Can be prepared in less time if veggies are pre-cooked in the microwave and onion is fried with kielbasa and garlic. Just add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for an hour or so to blend flavors.
Can double recipe and freeze extra in a Zip-Loc for a quick future meal.
