Made some changes to fit ingredients on hand: Used 5 red potatoes and did not peel them. Quartered and sliced. Used a large leek, both white and green parts, instead of onions. Halved leek to rinse it well, then sliced thinly. Used 1/2 lb. sausage. I think it was a mild Andouille (unmarked from my freezer) microwaved to cook, then removed from casing and cut in thin pieces. I used beef broth instead of chicken broth, and at the end added one teaspoon of smoked paprika which added great depth of flavor. The potatoes do stick to the pan! I'll try to watch them more closely next time. Next time I will omit bay leaves. I didn't think they added that much, and they were hard to find and fish out amongst all that kale. Not fun to chew if you miss a piece! Soup looks comforting and tastes great. I will make this again, thanks so much!

EXCELLENT SOUP! I substituted the can of tomatoes for 2 cans of Hot Rotel to give it some kick, and turkey summer sausage for the chourico to cut down on the calories. I also added a can of corn. Turned out amazing!

Am eating this soup as I type! Delicious!!! Like HT, I used red potatoes and did not peel. Added a cup of sliced mushrooms that were handy and used jalapeno sausage to give it a bit of a kick. Left out the bay leaves as I didn't have any handy. Adding to my cookbook as a favorite.
