Awesome recipe! Easy, healthy, cheap. I've been meaning to eat more kale, and now that I've made this recipe once, I know eating kale more often won't be a problem at all. I was lucky enough to have a bit of home made chicken stock in which I cooked the potatoes.

I used 2 cups of chicken broth for extra flavor. What a delicious soup!

Go to a good deli and get GOOD chorizo! Not mexican! YOu want good european chorizo. Has flavor. Used only 1/4 pound kale, as had kids eating and that was almost too much for them to handle. green floaties!!

This is the way it should be done!! To be honest, this is better Caldo verde than my husband’s family make (who are, by the way, Portuguese). Thanks for posting, Graybert! This one's a keeper!

I made this and everybody loved it. It's a very authentic recipe. I made to changes from the recipe as written. I used collard greens instead of kale, and I used Portuguese chouriço instead of Mexican chorizo. Good job with this recipe.

Very good! My husband makes a very similar one except he used 50/50 water to chicken broth. Both ways are good and not overly american-ized.

I'm portuguese and I think that you have written this recipie very well (if you see what I mean). I've never seen my parents cook caldo verde so now I can cook it myself. I ate caldo verde today too (Tuesday,12 of April,2005).Thanks!
