Very good soup, the combination of chorizo, tomatoes and potatoes is really yummy. I left the chicken out, since it would have been too much meat for us. I used 3/4 of the chorizo and skipped the hot sauce, since the chorizo we get is pretty spicy. I also used just a half tablespoon of oil and a lot less of the chips/cheese, just sprinkled on top. This did serve 4 people for a meal. Very enjoyable!
This was so easy and super tasty! Do all of your chopping before you start and it's a breeze to put together. I followed recipe and added a small can of drained corn. However, I cannot believe the nutritional facts are correct . . . over 2000 calories & 122 grams of fat per serving?!?! No way!
I have been making this soup for about a year now, my whole family loves it! I double the recipe and use half spicy chorizo and half mild. I use black beans instead of kidney beans and throw in a can of drained corn. We also skip the broiler, I just put a huge bowl of shredded pepper jack cheese and another of tortilla chips on the table. Everyone adds them to suit their own taste. I make about once a month all year long.
