How to make a Chorizo and Potato Soup

This dish is a variation of something my mom would make for me, my brothers and sisters pretty regularly. Through the years i’ve adapted this to fit with my every changing pallet.

The addition of chorizo adds some much depth it’s unbelievable. I don’t use anything with a bright color, I want to keep the soup as white as possible. I also like to finish it with smoked paprika.

  • 1lb Chorizo – How to make Mexican-Style Chorizo
