Calypso Kielbasa

Calypso Kielbasa

This is a sweet, spicy and very colorful island-like tasty treat. It'll make your taste buds dance. I created this recipe when I was running really low on groceries and had to throw something together for dinner. It has evolved a bit since, but it still retains the same basic concept.

  • Yield: 4 servings ( Serving Size: Servings )
  • Cook time:1 Hour
  • Prep time:5 Minutes


  • 1 lb. Kielbasea or smoked sausage sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 6 fresh serrano or jalapeno peppers, sliced (can substitute about a half of a medium sized green bell pepper - slice about one inch long and 1/4 inch thick)
  • Half of a medium sized yellow bell pepper - slice about one inch long and 1/4 inch thick
  • Half of a medium sized red bell pepper - slice about one inch long and 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans - drained and rinsed
  • 1 20 ounce can pineapple chunks - half of the juice reserved
  • 1/4-1/3 cup brown sugar (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb egg noodles


Heat olive oil and add red pepper flakes in a large skillet. Brown kielbasa on both sides in olive oil and pepper flakes for 5-7 minutes.

Add peppers and onion to skillet. Cook until peppers start to soften. This should take about 10-12 minutes.

Add reserved pineapple juice and brown sugar to skillet. Cook for another 20 minutes.

Add black beans. Cook for another 10 minutes.

Add pineapple chunks. Simmer until you have desired sauce amount and thickness. This should take about 20 minutes.

While kielbasa mixture is simmering, boil egg noodles, according to package directions, and drain.

Serve kielbasa mixture over egg noodles.
