I got this recipe from Pete at Mockingbird Farm (where I get my delicious, pasture-raised beef & pork). He had mentioned the soup on his Facebook page so when I went to pick up my meat that same week, he shared his recipe with me. I tweaked Pete’s recipe slightly, subbing potatoes for beans, and it was a perfect, warm bowl of deliciousness on a cool, Fall day.

Chorizo & Kale Soup

Chorizo & Kale Soup // Primal Noms

Serves: 4

1 lb. chorizo

1 yellow onion, minced

5 garlic cloves, minced

3 potatoes, chopped

6 cups broth

1 tsp. salt

1 bunch of kale

Using kitchen shears, cut the chorizo into 1/2 inch chunks. Brown in a large stock pot over medium heat, then remove chorizo & set aside. (Don’t worry if some of the chorizo sticks to the bottom of the pot as it will mix in with the other ingredients.)


Add the onion & garlic to the pot and cook until fragrant – about 3 minutes.


Next, add the potatoes & stir everything together.


Add the broth, water & salt and let it come to a low boil. Cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Mash the potatoes so they blend in with & thicken the broth.

Tear the kale leaves from the stem & chop. Stir in the kale & chorizo and let cook for a couple more minutes, until the kale has wilted. Taste and add salt as needed. Serve hot.
