This is a warm and fragrant soup which isn't overly heavy. The delicious smell lingered in my house for a couple of days. making me hungry for yet another bowl . I used authentic chorizo (mild flavor) which I precooked, discarding most of the fat before adding to the soup. Also, I added kale for color. Thank you Diva for posting - I'm looking forward to checking out more of your recipes.
Yum! I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. It really hit the spot for a cold day. Thanks for posting this quick and easy meal!
It really is a meal-in-one soup. I used smoked turkey keilbasy. I added an extra cup of water, otherwise it would have been pretty dry. I loved the flavor that the caraway seeds gave. I think I would add a little extra brown sugar next time or just omit the vinegar, because I thought it was just a little too acidic. Thanx for posting a yummy soup!
