This warming chorizo soup recipe is fabulous as a quick lunch… or if you thicken it slightly, it works well over pasta too! You can add in other ingredients… but we like to keep ours really simple.
Half a chorizo, sliced or diced into 1 cm pieces
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
A finely chopped chilli (or more if you like it spicy like us!)
Handful of finely chopped fresh basil
Small tub of creme fraiche
- Throw your diced chorizo into a medium heat pan. Don’t bother with oil… chorizo produces its own
- Chuck in the chilli
- Once browned nicely, pour in your tinned tomatoes and bring the heat up a bit.
- Simmer for about 20 minutes and then bring the heat down to low again
- Stir in the creme fraiche and basil, and cook gently for another 2 minutes or so, just to warm it through
- Serve with lots of bread
