    PaulaG's Note:

    DH and I have been going to a little place called Cafe Rio for years. About the only thing we ever order there is Portuguese kale soup. I have tried to duplicate the recipe for several years and this is as close as it gets. The linguica sausage is a must.

      Even though I couldn't find the linguica sausage, this turned out great. Spicy and flavorful!

      This is one of my favorite soups to make. I have made it now regularly and it keeps getting easier and better each time. I use cherizo instead of linguia. I also omit the beans. I sometimes to cut corners I have used frozen kale which works fine. I also add more red pepper as it is cold here in New Hampshire.Its a really yummy and inexpensive meal. I serve it with crusty bread. It freezes ok (except for the potatoes. Thanks for the great recipe.
