Spicy Chorizo Red Lentil Soup with Kale
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 pound of ground chorizo
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes in juice
  • 3 (14.5 oz) cans of chicken broth
  • salt to taste
  1. Bring a large pot to medium-high heat and brown the chorizo.
  2. Add onions, celery, garlic and kale to the pot. Saute with the chorizo until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add the lentils, chicken broth and lentils. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Cover the pot and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
  5. Add salt to taste
If you like a thinner soup, add more liquid. I ended up adding half a chicken broth can of water to the pot.
