Black Bean Soup With Chorizo and Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 12mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is an easy to make, hearty soup perfect with a side salad and a good corn bread or rustic loaf. It's originally from the R.S.V.P. section of a January 2008 issue of Bon Appetit and was requested from Siena restaurant in Cape Cod.

This is my favorite soup! I reduce the amount of chorizo to a link or two and use rotisserie chicken. The spice from the chorizo makes this soup wonderful!
