This soup was delicious. I used a chicken-based chorizo sausage to reduce the amount of fat. Read More

This soup was really tasty and easy to make! I scaled the recipe to 4 servings and found that using only 1-1/2 cups of water wasn't near enough so I increased the amount of water to 3-1/2 cups and it was still a pretty thick soup. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

I made this soup for my family as a spur of the moment change of pace and they LOVED it! We halved the cayenne pepper to make it more mild and found that this is a dish we'll be eating often in the future. Thank you Sara! Read More

I'd really like to give this a three and a half stars; my husband really liked it I sort of liked it. It brought to mind my grandfather's habit of putting ketchup in his chicken soup. Why he would do that? I don't know. Anyway it's a change of pace soup; something different with the beans definitely spicy and easy to fix. Read More

Delicious!! I was very pleasantly surprised- I wasn't expecting such full on flavour, at least more than just spicy, but it was very flavourful. The spice was not overpowering. I did change the recipe slightly to fit what I had on hand- I did not add celery, and the spice I used was a paprika/cayenne mix. I also added crushed chilies. I cooked the chorizo on a grill pan which added a nice 'grilled' smokey flavour. Was not an expensive meal either, and easy to make, so this will become part of my normal rotation! Read More

I didn't put the whole cayenne pepper because we are not huge fans of very spicy food but it was a very nice meal. You really can't go wrong with the chorizo sausage:) I thought the cooking time was too short so I simmered it for half hour. I also used 5 potatoes and a whole pound of sausage and halved the cayenne. Read More
