Easy Chourico Soup

Recipe by  

"As long as you have the right kind of chourico, you cannot mess up this filling, slightly spicy soup. It's perfect for an autumn or winter meal, and can easily be adapted for vegans by using soyrizo (see note) instead of chourico. You can also use other vegetables, such as butternut squash or kale. I like to use organic spinach and vegetable broth when they are available."

Directions

  1. Cook the chourico in a soup pot over medium-high heat until it releases some oil. Add the chopped onion; stir and cook until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Mix in the garbanzo beans, diced tomatoes, sweet potatoes, vegetable broth, and thyme. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the sweet potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the baby spinach into the soup and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I loved this! I doubled the recipe and added extra sausage. I could not find dried Chorico sausage so I used Andouille. Yum!

This is so simple yet flavorful. Chourico is the same as hard chorizo, which is what I used. I subbed chicken stock for the vegetable and baby kale instead of spinach. I will use sweet onion the next time I make this because I didn't care for the look of the red onion but that has no bearing on the taste. Thanks, Ashley! This is a winner.

This was really great and hearty! This had a lovely balance of sweet and spicy. It seems very healthy too! I did make some changes though. I used chicken chorizo, black beans instead of garbanzo, and zuccini instead of spinach.

Very good, I did not have Chorico so I used a red pepper and spinach chicken sausage and it was great.
