      This is a great and unique recipe, really. Delicious combination of flavors! I found I needed to cook the collard greens and chorizo a little longer than the recipe stated. I also used chicken broth for half the amount of water. This was a yummy dish and I'll definitely make again!

      Great recipe. I grew up on caldo gallego and this makes a great meal. Dip crustry French or Italian bread in this, and I'd recommend using the collard greens over the spinach. Thanks so much for posting!
