Make this Spicy Soup with Chorizo Packed with Garden Vegetables 3


The spicy soup is packed with vegetables. If you’ve got a thriving garden, it’s a great way to incorporate some of your garden produce.

Spicy Chorizo Soup

This spicy soup featuring chorizo is a great way to heat things up. It’s ready in an hour on the stove top, but works in the slow cooker, too.
This spicy soup is always a hit at gatherings, and in fact, I have one friend who requests it if she knows she’ll be visiting.
I make soup nearly every week and this chorizo soup is one of our favorites.
If you’ve got kids who like chips and salsa, but balk at vegetables on the dinner table, this might be a hit at your house, too.

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 oz. chorizo or vegetarian Soyrizo
  • 3 cups finely diced or crushed tomatoes (jarred or fresh)
  • 2 cups chicken stock/broth
  • ½-1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • crushed organic tortilla chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. Note: If you have a food processor, you can make quick work of the chopping by pulsing the onions, garlic, and pepper until they're all finely chopped. Ditto if you're using tomatoes fresh from the garden.
  2. Heat the oil in a stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, bell pepper, and chorizo. Sauté until onions start to brown slightly. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, and pepper flakes. Simmer on low heat for an hour. Stir in the cilantro. Divide the spicy soup between four bowls, then top with cheese and crushed chips.
  3. This spicy soup recipe works well in a slow cooker, too. Simply combine sautéed ingredients, tomatoes, broth, and pepper flakes in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Recipe Notes

If you have teens as I do, or like to have leftovers, I recommend doubling this recipe. You can even make enough to freeze for a second meal later in the week.
