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!
