Chorizo Sausage Soup Recipes – Chorizo sausage can be a little on the spicy side as a pork sausage but it is perfect in soups, omelets and a variety of other regional dishes.
When it comes to soups, it does not matter if you select the Spanish (chorizo), Portuguese (chouriço), Italian or Argentinian varieties of pork sausage which are available fresh, cured or smoked.
There is also Mexican chorizo sausage which gets its spicy taste from chili peppers!
Today is the first really chilly day we’ve had so far this Fall. It’s starting to feel like soup weather everywhere. I’m considering a vegetable soup with the leftover ham bone but my sister sent an email with this recipe for her simple version of Chorizo sausage soup.
To tell the truth, there are as many version of this combination vegetable and sausage soup as you can imagine. Everyone from Rachel Ray to Jamie Oliver have a version of this soup.
Just replace regular sausage with chorizo in any soup where sausage is an ingredient. You will immediately add a spicy kick to the recipe! Just below is my sister’s recipe but I also collected a few more Chorizo sausage soup recipes!

Collected Chorizo Sausage Soup Recipes
Let’s start the soup collection with a recipe that looks as if it were prepared in my crockpot!
Slow Cooker Sausage, Spinach and White Bean Soup
This recipe does not specifically call for chorizo. It calls for French Andouille sausage but no worries here. Andouille is Chorizo’s French cousin! I’ve found a similar soup prepared with kale but spinach may be a little milder and more to everyone’s taste. Short on prep time with easily available ingredients – Can’t wait to make this is my crockpot!
Every recipe on this site is damn delicious!

I could not resist adding just one more recipe to this round up! This variation uses white beans.
The sausage can be chorizo, the kale can be spinach. Grab what you have in your pantry or prepare the recipe as written.
Either way, I bet it will taste incredibly good with a thick slice of country style bread.
