Caldo Gallega

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"A very flavorful Puerto Rican soup I got from one of my co-workers. It is fast, easy, and most of all delicious! I start it the night before serving by cooking the broth, onions, potatoes, and chorizo. That way the next day after work, all I have to do is add the remaining ingredients and heat through."

We loved this soup! I sauteed the meat and onions before adding to the broth and added 1/2tsp black pepper and 1/4tsp cayenne pepper. Healthy and satisfying.

I added 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper. We both thought it was excellent.

Very grateful for the recipe. Extremely delish! Thanks for sharing Miss Pam!m
