Black Bean and Chorizo Soup

Serves 4
Time 45 min
Chicken chorizo is a healthy version of the classic pork sausage. Serve soup with a spoonful of sour cream on top and a sprinkling of chopped cilantro.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound chicken chorizo sausage links
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, any color, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3 cups cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
Method

Simmer chicken sausages in water for 15 minutes. 

Drain and chop. 

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot. 

Add sausages, onion, garlic, bell pepper, crushed red chile, cumin and salt. 

Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables soften, 8 to 10 minutes. 

Add broth and beans. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to low. 

Simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. 

Eat as is or serve over whole-wheat couscous or brown rice. Leftover soup will thicken into a stew-like consistency.
